"Called to the Table" (10-12-14)
On Sunday, September 28, worshipers from both services at Grace had the opportunity to assist the children of our Sunday School with the building of a Graceful Giving Tree. Leaves and fruit were place on the tree at the end of each service with descriptions of ministries or service opportunities that are important to each of our members. What brings me hope about this year's is that it involves each member (women, men, children, and youth) in identifying those things which are important to us as we move forward together doing God's work in our community and in our world.
No gift is insignificant when it comes to supporting the work of the church, whether it is financial, a personal talent, or in the giving of time and effort. Each member's commitment to doing God's work is of value and importance. It is the accumulation of our varied gifts that make it possible to the mission of the church to be accomplished.
October 19th is the date scheduled for the groundbreaking ceremony for the Building Independence Project on the corner of Lake Wheeler Road and Kirk Avenue. The Event begins at 3 PM, with the groundbreaking ceremony occurring at 3:45 PM. Grace is one of eight Lutheran congregations that will be participating in the building of one of the three homes on that site in the late summer or fall of 2015.
The Building Independence Project brings people together to build and maintain safe, affordable housing for nine low-income adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities enabling them to live at their highest level of independence. Partners in this effort are Lutheran Services Carolinas, Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, The Serving Cup, and the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity. Fourteen members of Grace are already committed to participating in this project. More information will be coming to you in the coming months.
May God smile greatly upon us as we continue to move forward together in Christ, in Community.
Yours in Christ,
Get to know Jesus well because the more you know him, the more you'll love him. And the more you love him, the more you'll want to follow him. And the more you follow him, the more you'll become like him. And the more you become like him, the more you become yourself.
