Well, we had 182 of us head out to extend grace throughout the Twin Cities. People are amazed at the fact we’d be willing to demonstrate faith in real ways. I think the church (generally and nationally speaking) has been too inward focused over the years and penned up in their buildings. We’re beginning to take steps to turn the tide and live out the call of Jesus to our world. It’s exciting to be at GCR these days!
Pastor Bob told the story of how he was arranging for one of our “ministry sites” and a cashier at the store we wanted to serve at, overheard Bob talking with the manager. She later asked him what kind of church would want to do this kind of thing? Bob told her about Grace and that Sunday she was at Grace for our morning worship service! Very cool! You never know the impact we’re having by living our faith!
