Pressure Points ConversationThursday, November 14th, 7pm
at the GraceCity Loft
(3701 Bank Street, Suite C. 21224)

Science and Faith:  Complementary or Contradictory?
We hope you’ll join us for our next Pressure Points conversation, where we’ll talk about the historic tension between science and faith and examine ways in which that tension is playing out in 2019.  We’ll have scientists and others share their perspectives on topics such as climate change, vaccines, creation, evolution, and bioethics. Please bring your questions and ideas! We look forward to a rich discussion. 

Round 2 of The Book of Revelation is happening during our Adult Discipleship house before church this month. Pop in and check it out!

October 2019

The church exists to introduce people to Jesus, and we are excited this October to have events that will do just that! We can’t just think that and hope that people will wander in to church—we need to be out building relationships with them.

State of Grace

Every year around this time we like to call a big church meeting where we get the chance to share with you updates on staffing changes, approved budgets for the fiscal year from our governing board the Elders and anything else relevant to the operation of our church. We are so grateful for the congregation’s input in helping us Strategically Plan over the last 18 months as we look ahead at the next 10 years for GraceCity and the work we do not just on Sundays but the other 167 hours in the week. Join us Sunday October 6 following service for this meeting in the auditorium.

 

Baptism & All Church Potluck

Join us for a special GraceCity morning Sunday October 13th from 8am-10am. It is not to late to sign up to be baptized. Being baptized in water proclaims through a physical symbol the spiritual reality that you have become identified with Christ through saving faith in Him. Has the time come for you to make the plunge? If so please contact Mary Lou Gradisek marylou.gradisek@gracecitybaltimore.org

After we gather to witness Baptism we will break bread and share a meal. We would like to the many nations, countries and heritages represented in our church and community. Would you consider bringing a favorite dish from your country of origin or your family? You can sign up here to bring a dish to share.

Don’t like to cook? There are plenty of other ways you can help serve that day. Check out those opportunities here!
