31-DAY JOURNEY WITH JESUS
Join us as we engage with clergy and laity from our Conference for "A Community of Love and Forgiveness." This 31-day journey, from MLK Day (January 18) to Ash Wednesday (February 17), features a daily devotional and corresponding video, supported by Bishop Carter, who will introduce each week’s devotional readings. Learn more and download the devotional here on our website (www.mygraceumc.com/love-and-forgiveness) or at the Florida Conference (flumc.org/love-forgiveness).
During the season of Lent, we will embark on a worship series and small group study called, Savior: What the Bible Says About The Cross. Here, we will look at scriptures throughout the Bible to understand the death and resurrection of Jesus. By exploring the mystery of salvation through the cross, we can deepen our love for God and others and strengthen our commitment to follow Jesus.
Join Pastors Tracie and Erick for a short-term small group based on the worship series, Savior. This 6-week study will look at the biblical images throughout scripture that help us understand the death and resurrection of Jesus and will begin on Sunday, February 21st, at 7p.

DRIVE-THRU PANCAKE DINNER
Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday…a day where, traditionally, all the fatty foods in the house are eaten before giving things up for Lent…thus a pancake dinner. This year we will do this as a drive-thru, where you’ll drive through our parking lot, pick up your dinners to go, and also pick up your "Ash Wednesday Kit," which you’ll use during worship on Ash Wednesday. Dinners ar $7.50 per meal with a Family Max of $25. Dinner includes 3 Pancakes, Sausage Links, Syrup, and Butter.
Proceeds benefit the establishment and remodeling of the A Rooms as our newly dedicated Refuge Youth Room.

This is a discipleship series hosted by Warren Willis Camp, January 29-31. This is open to any/all, middle & high school students. We will leave Grace at 5:45p on Friday, January 29th, and return to Grace on Sunday, January 31st at 12:30p. Cost per student is $70 per student for the weekend. You can use this LINK to sign-up today!
Confirmation for our youth is beginning today, January 24th. This is a component of the United Methodist Church that allows 6-12th grade students the chance to learn about the church. We cover three main areas: Our Christian Faith, the United Methodist Church, and how we are to live as Christians in this world. This is an important opportunity for students to say "yes" to accepting their faith and making it part of their lifestyle. Students who attend will get to choose whether or not they want to take the next step and be confirmed at the end pf the process. This helps them really understand that their faith is THEIR faith! We will meet Sunday afternoons, from 3:15-4:45p and have a couple of group events and a weekend retreat in our schedule. We are also offering a Zoom option in order to meet the need of families requiring this alternative. Contact Greg Rusch, the Director of Youth Ministries if you are interested at email@example.com.
**NOTE: For all in-person events, Refuge Youth will require face masks for everyone and will be practicing social distancing and have several opportunities for hand cleaning/sanitizing.
