Engage Through Compassion

If you’ve been at Grace Church the last few weeks, you’ve seen displays designed to “prime” your thinking. We’ve asked you to consider how much your family spends on groceries each week? And to think about what you spend on household entertainment, coffee, eating out, and cell phones each year? We’ve exposed staggering statistics on children all over the world, including in our own nation, who are being neglected, abused, and forced to suffer, innocently. And we’ve shared data about how “average” people live in our world – so differently than us, and how homelessness is an issue across our nation, our state, our county, and even our immediate community.

Why?

At Grace Church, we believe it is OUR responsibility to do something. Every single one of us has a responsibility, in obedience to God’s Word, to do SOMETHING.

On Sunday, December 1, we will focus our entire morning on compassion, particularly focusing on children. Our goal is to provide you with opportunities to DO SOMETHING!

You can expect:

–          A worship service focused on our biblical responsibility to be involved in compassion

–          An introduction to families who have been examples of compassion, through foster care and adoption

–          A ministry fair with organizations who rescue and protect children, who are anxious to provide you with opportunities to be involved

–          An overview of the 2013 Birthday Gift for Jesus, which will focus on ministries who focus on compassion

“Speak up for the people who have no voice, for the rights of all the down-and-outers. Speak out for justice! Stand up for the poor and destitute.” Proverbs 31:8-9 (Message)
