Men’s Retreat

Alpha coming this fall!

Grace Lutheran will host a 10 week class 6-8 pm on Thursday nights this fall.

Alpha is a highly successful international video/small group course as an introduction to the Christian faith. A no-obligation introduction night, called the Taste of Alpha, takes place Sept. 5th, 6-8 pm at Grace Lutheran (includes a free dinner). Not just an excellent course for seekers and new Christians, it also has proven to be a great blessing to those who have followed Christ for many years. Questions? Contact Don Peter.

Next Week

Next week Pastor David will speak on "An Oasis for the Broken.".
