On Vision Sunday, I had the joy of laying before you our intentional plan to make Jesus-centered disciples so we can see our community transformed by God’s grace and become passionate for His glory. If you missed Vision Sunday, listen to the sermon here or read about it here.
Here at Grace Life, our mission is simple: We exist to make Jesus-centered disciples for God’s glory.
You may wonder what that looks like for you in a practical sense, so we put our mission into action in what we call “The Discipleship Pathway.”
As a member of Grace Life, we want you to be involved in 3 specific areas of our church:
- We want you to CONNECT because of the gospel through Sunday morning services, weekly LifeGroups, and other events.
- We want you to GROW in the gospel through personal study of the Bible and engaging in intentional discipleship.
- We want you to INFLUENCE with the gospel in everyday life through missions, evangelism, and volunteering.
These strategies will help us accomplish our mission of making Jesus-centered disciples. Don’t look at them as stages to your Christian life; think of them more as a self assessment. We believe every disciple of Jesus needs to live connect, grow, and influence. We also know this looks different for every disciple of Jesus. That’s why we want to do everything we can to help you take your next step. Go to thegracelifechurch.org/nextsteps and check everything that applies.
Where are you on The Discipleship Pathway? It’s time to take your next step!
One way you can be an influence with the Gospel is by giving towards our Fall Vision Offering. Every year, we hold a special offering in the spring for global missions and a special offering in the fall for local missions and ministry equipment. Our goal for this fall’s special offering is $3000. This is above and beyond your normal giving and is a step of faith that allows us to continue reaching our community with the Gospel by purchasing supplies without breaking our budget.
This special offering will go towards:
- Supplies for KidLife such as toys, puzzles, a new printer, and bases for the play panels.
- Discipleship material
- Supplies for Lake Asbury Elementary and Lake Asbury Junior High
- Our Movie in the Park
Please consider giving towards the Vision Offering. You can give two ways:
Online at thegracelifechurch.org/give and select “Special Offering”
– or –
In Person; be sure to use an Offering Envelope and write “Vision” in the space next to “other”.
Let’s continue to work together and make disciples so we can see our community transformed by God’s grace and become passionate for his glory.
By His Grace,
