Grace Fellowship is a Family of Churches: (Saskatoon | Warman | Evergreen | Edmonton)

This Week in Grace – Sept. 17-23, 2012

This Week in Grace …

The First Word

 [1:1] The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Mark 1:1 ESV)   The Gospel is both from Jesus and about Jesus.  At Grace Fellowship, we’re all about Jesus. Not just God in general. We believe in God; his name is Jesus.

So, we love Jesus. We preach Jesus. We serve Jesus. We adore Jesus. We follow Jesus. Our whole goal is at the end to be with Jesus. We’re about Jesus.  That is why I am so excited to begin this new series in The Gospel according to Mark, where we will behold (1) Who Jesus is  (2) Why did Jesus come  (3) What it means to follow Jesus


Upcoming Events


•       Lighthouse Bible study  Our next Bible study at the Lighthouse will be this Tuesday, Sept. 25.  Information can be    found HERE.

  •       Porterbrook Bible Training:  There is still time to get registered.  We are having a make up session next week for those who missed the introductory session.Application forms found HERE.
  •       C2C Cadre with Jeff Vandersteldt and Caesar Kalinowski in Edmonton on Thursday Oct. 4: This is a one day event focused on missional communities.  I am going and would love to have as many join in as possible.  I do not yet know the cost as online registration info has not yet been posted.  I am planning to drive to Edmonton after the work day on Wed. Oct 3.  The training is during the day until around 3:30 pm.  We would then head back to Saskatoon that afternoon, so everyone can be home for work on Friday!  Thus, you would only need to take one day off of work, and it would be a great road trip, if we travelled together.  If you are interested please let Murray know.


The Gospel Project for Grace Kids

  • We  still could use another 3 volunteers to round out the schedule, but we are thankful to have enough volunteers to get started.  This Sunday, Sept. 23 will be our second week of the Gospel Project.  A big thank you to all our volunteers who set aside their own agenda to love others in this way.  You are a picture of the Gospel.



  • Trailer Hunter:  I (Murray) would like someone to come with me to find and, Lord willing, make a purchase of a trailer that will meet our needs as a church.  You do not have to be a “trailer whisperer” but must at least have more knowledge than I do, or it will simply be a remake of Dumb and Dumber!

 This coming Sunday:  Murray McLellan will be preaching on Mark 1:1-8  I would encourage you to read through this section in preparation for our study

The Last Word

 11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

(Titus 2:11-14 ESV)
