TODAY AT GRACE
It’s ZOO DAYS at DISCOVERY KIDZ! This week: It’s all about
the Zebra. Zebras are different! God made them that way! The wavy
lines of a Zebra blend in with the wavy lines of the tall grass around
it. It doesn’t matter that the Zebra’s stripes are black and white and
the lines of the grass are yellow, brown, or green, because the Zebra’s
main predator, the lion, is color blind! God has a specific plan for
every one of us and He made us just the way He wants us to be…in
Memory Verse this week:
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.
Before you were born, I set you apart”
A PRAYER GROUP will meet following the service in the sanctuary
to pray for Pastor George & Connections, and the needs and vision at
Grace Reformed Church.
SUNDAYS AT 6:00 - We will be meeting with Faith Reformed
Church, 618 32nd Street for the remainder of the summer! Please
