PRAYERS & PRAISE
IN APPRECIATION – Thank you to the Grace congregation for all the cards,
prayers, visits and meals following my recent surgery. They are all very much
appreciated! ~Sandy Workman
We wish to express our sincere love and heartfelt thanks to our friends and
family, Pastor Rick and the staff at GRC for the almost 4 great and exciting
years we had with you and for the support of the congregation in the many
youth ministry endeavors we tried over all that time. Also much appreciation
to all those who dedicated their time and energy to the many youth projects in
the past. My family and I were truly blessed to be a part of this congregation
and we were blessed to be able to minister to the young people of this church
and community. It has all helped take me and my family where we are today
and to where God will take us now in the future. The digital camera and
printer were totally unexpected but certainly a blessing since we have been
borrowing the church’s camera for important events lately. Thank you so
much for the meaningful final Sunday for us and for the time to stand in front
and sing praises and speak to you one more time at Grace. It was a great 4
years for us and it just prepared Grace for the plans that God has in store for
the future with Darrell and Nikki’s help on staff. We love you all and we could
certainly use your prayers as we head into a totally new children’s ministry
opportunity. We will keep in touch and come back from time to time to visit
and check in with Grace! ~Keith, Cindy & Rachel Benthin
