Adult Education
On Sunday, February 12, the Adult Education is entitled Refugees: Is There Common Ground  for Christians?. Our nation is deeply divided over the issue of refugees, and there are Christians on both sides of the question. At 9:30 a.m. in the Palmer Room, Pastor Sandy Hull will give a presentation seeking to identify biblical principles that inform this issue on which Christians of all political persuasions can agree.  No attempt will be made to propose one “Christian” policy on refugees.  Rather, we will look at Scripture together in hopes of finding a basis for conversations that are, in both content and tone, distinctively Christian.

Valentine's Cards Available
For the fifth year Women of Grace will be providing the opportunity to support the education and art programs at Beacon, a newly chartered church in Kensington, by offering Valentine's Day cards for $5 each. These are original designs. We would love to raise a record breaking $1,000, this year! Look for them at Church on Sunday February 5th and 12th, or contact either Sandy DiGiulio (digiulio@comcast.net at 267 252 2019) or Donna Jones (donnajonesart1@gmail.com or 215 379 5457).

Grace Place
On Friday, February 10, 2017, Donna Jones will be leading an arts and crafts program at Grace Place.  Lunch is at 12:00 noon and the program will begin at 12:45.  Bring a friend and join us for some fun valentine crafts!

Men’s Retreat
Men, mark your calendars! The Men’s Retreat is March 3-5, 2017. Please consider joining us for a weekend of fellowship, spiritual renewal, study, fun, and relaxation at the Harvey Cedars Bible Conference. This year our group will focus John Ortberg’s work The Life You Always Wanted. The life that Christ desires of us is indeed the life that we truly want. Through videos and small group discussions, we’ll explore why we should and how we can transform our lives into the manner that Jesus desires.  More details to come.
