Here at Grace church we have some big plans coming up for our youth.
On Sunday mornings we just started going through the book of Galatians and are excited to learn more about the New Testament letters and more about God’s word!
Speaking of God’s word, we are so excited to announce the theme of this year’s summer camp, ‘Who is God?’ As our speaker John Thomson digs into this vital question, we hope to challenge the students to better understand God and through that have a greater love of their Heavenly Father and a deeper passion for His Word.
In an attempt to get the students as excited for camp we are, this upcoming Wednesday (5/26) starts our Summer Countdown! During the weeks leading up to summer camp, we are excited to spend Wednesday nights a little differently. During this Summer Countdown we will have cotton candy, archery tag, board games, ice cream, dodgeball, carnival games, shave ice, and much much more! So if you are a youth anywhere from going into 6th grade to going out of 12th grade this year, or are a parent with a youth within that age range we would love to have you sign up for summer camp! It is going to be amazing and we don't want anyone to miss out.
As for the rest of the Church, we are still looking for a couple leaders, so if you are an adult looking to serve and are interested in being a leader for summer camp, please contact me. To everyone else we ask you to pray, because although camp is a blast it is also a time where students can grow in their faith and love for the Lord. We ask you to pray that each student will leave the camp with a passion for the word of God and that the friends who are brought who may not know the Lord will leave with a confidence in their savior, Christ. Thank you all in advance for all the prayer and support that we already know that you as a church will provide.
Join us as we will be celebrating, during both services, the calling of our new Senior Pastor Rev. Paul Mollett.
Rev. John Ramey will bring the message.
Rev. Steve Elliott, Grace Church’s founding pastor & Rev. Neal Brower from EFCA will pray.
Executive Pastor Garry will give a brief charge to Paul and the congregation. The elders will lay hands on Paul & Katie and bless them for this journey ahead.
Refreshments to follow. What a great day!

Practicing spiritual disciplines is an ancient tradition passed down for generations to experience a deeper, interactive walk with God through Jesus Christ. The critical need in Christianity today is for Christians to walk humbly and deeply with God. Many churches major on programs but do not teach deep spirituality.
This Bible study, starting May 23rd, 2021 at 10:45 in the Green Room at Grace Church Kelseyville, is designed to teach the basic spiritual disciplines to everyday Christians, so they can enjoy the intimacy with God they were created for.
So, if a close fellowship with God is something you long for, then this Bible study is for you. Learn how to connect with God with true intimacy by practicing the spiritual disciplines.
To help us in our study we will be using much of the wisdom from Dr. Gil Stieglitz' book Spiritual Disciplines of a C. H. R. I. S. T. I. A. N. We will unpack the word CHRISTIAN to identify nine spiritual disciplines essential in a program of intensive training in Christian spirituality prerequisites for developing a deeper relationship with God.
Practicing the disciplines outlined in our Bible study will require change in the participant and guide them into a new awareness of the presence of God throughout their life and in their spiritual journey.
This class will be team taught by Pastor Garry, Tim Hoff, and Matt Carpenter

Here at Grace Church we love our moms. We love seeing you faithfully unpack your army of well-dressed kids out of the car each Sunday. We love watching you hang on to the ones who ought not get away from you and enjoy watching those that are old enough to run or walk to their classrooms for Sunday School. We love watching the way you lead them while you worship in service, fervently take notes and respond when God’s Word is opened. We love watching the way you dream with them as you make plans for their future. We even love the way you train them up through discipline when the excitement of church can get out of hand at times. We want you to feel noticed, appreciated and cared for by your church body.
Being a mom is hard. We see numerous times in scripture where the task of motherhood came with great sacrifice and much hardship. We see the hardship you are experiencing in raising kids. We see the struggle that many are having to create a family but that opportunity does not come easy. We see the struggle in a mama’s heart when her kin drift from the ways she has raised them to go. BEING A MOM IS HARD, BUT GOD IS NOT ABSENT.
God is not absent in your struggle and there is great reward for the faithful. God is not absent in your desire or in your effort to love those God has entrusted you with. Being a mom is so much more than a biological formality. Being a mom is a choice that each woman will make to love those that God has placed in her life.
On behalf of our church, I want to THANK YOU for taking on the task of discipleship. Forgive us for allowing the world to minimize your effort with the title of Mom. You are so much more than a mom. You are a servant of God who is a personal trainer of the next generation. For this we are grateful.
On Sunday we are going to be praying over you and your mission field of trainees. Will you join us as we aim to empower you to be a faithful servant of the lord with the title: Mom?
