Challenges

Beginning in January 2021 we set out to encourage members of our community and our church family to be I Am Grace Overflowing. We invite you to join us in these weekly challenges!

Celebrate Abundance: We recognize the bread of life and the abundance he provides. Your challenge is to celebrate abundance by writing down your blessings, sit with your family and share what you are thankful for, or end your day in a prayer of thanks!


Make Connections: We remember The Vine and realize the grace we receive when connected to Christ. Make a connection by posting your favorite bible verse at home or work to read it daily, spend an extra 5 minutes in God's work this week, use a prayer journal to remind you of prayer requests.

Follow the Shepherd: We follow the shepherd as we recognize we're part of a larger flock, help care for the flock by reaching out to a member of the church you haven't seen for a while to say hi, visit with someone at church you don't know well, or update your directory information in the new online directory.


Shine the Light: We are called to share His light with others. Your challenge is to bring light to your neighborhood by shoveling snow, dropping off homemade cookies, help run an errand or watch the kids.


Grocery Store Grace: Let's thank the grocery store workers that work hard to serve our families. Buy a treat for your checker, take minute to thanks the stocker or other employee, help a customer with groceries, let someone cut the line in front of you.


Loving the Lonely: The social distancing of COVID has caused many to feel isolated and alone. Reach out to someone you know who may be lonely or isolated by sending them a card (church office can provide names), or make a treat bag and drop them off at nursing home or homebound friends.


Window Work: Everyday of our lives we spend time looking out a window (car. home), brighten someone's day offering to wash someone's car windows the next time you get gas, or leave a note of encouragement on a windshield of a friend or stranger.
