JANUARY 1ST ONE SERVICE
January 1 | 11AM | Contact: gcinfo@gracechapelonline.org

To begin the New Year and kickoff 24/7 Prayer, we will have a one-hour family time of prayer and worship. We are excited to issue in the new year by pursuing God’s heart together. Kidventure is not available.

24-7 PRAYER ROOM
January 1-15 | Contact: scotty@gracechapelonline.org
God calls us to pray (Col 4:2) and promises to move in response to prayer (Jn 15:16). Prayer is vital to healthy intimacy with Jesus, yet we often struggle to make the time to pray. For these reasons and more we will be running two weeks of 24-7Prayer from Jan 1-15. During those two weeks the prayer room will be available 24-7, and filled with tools and activities to help you meet with God. You can go alone, with friends, as a family, or even with your Group. There will also be some corporate prayer and worship times. Signups sheets will be available in the next few weeks where you can book time in the prayer room in 1hr slots. The goal is for our church to join together to pray in our building continuously for 2 weeks, starting 2017 focused on Him and inviting His interventions in our church, city, and our world.

BAPTISMS
January 8 | Contact: baptisms@gracechapelonline.org
We immerse at Grace Chapel because we believe Scripture shows that Jesus modeled that for us as the way to publicly acknowledge our faith in Him. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. Your baptism is an opportunity to show others that you trust in Christ and are now walking with Him. Email us or talk with a Pastor if you are interested in taking this next step.

LOVE AFTER MARRIAGE CONFERENCE
February 22-25 |  $325 | Contact: lamgracechapel@gmail.com
Are you ready for God to bring lasting change to your marriage? Marriage can be really hard. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married a month or 20 years… We’ve all had those times of escalating conflicts, feeling hurt and frustrated towards each other, and experiencing the pain and stress of disconnection – even hopelessness at times. Love After Marriage (LAM) understands, and has helped thousands of couples learn how to restore, maintain, and deepen the connection in their relationship, so they can begin experiencing the kind of marriage they’ve hoped for – one filled with love, intimacy, enjoyment, hope and security. Our goal at Love After Marriage is to help guide married couples into experiencing deeper spiritual, emotional and sexual oneness in their relationship – with the help of Holy Spirit.
