Sow and Sew
Yup you read it correctly “Sow & Sew" is our sermon title for this coming Sunday. Sow & Sew is the third message in our “Sow Generously” series which flows out of Grace Valley’s 2017 theme entitled, “Sow Generously, Live Courageously”.
So far our series has touched on Sow & Soap, the details of which can be seen in our link below. Next came Sow N Seeds. In Jesus’ Parable of the Sower we determined how important it is for us to get out of the building and plant seeds of God’s Word everywhere! The more we spread the seeds the better chance we have in planting the Word in fertile hearts ready to receive the Word.
So what do we mean by Sow & Sew? In Acts 18 one of the things God teaches us is how important it is to connect with other folks with the same common interest to grow His church. For more details we invite you to stop by Sunday. We’ll leave the lights on and the doors open for you :) We’d love to meet you!
Bible Reading Plan/S.O.A.P. Journal
In 2017 at Grace Valley, we are working on sowing generously, and living courageously. But we won't do it very well, if we aren't sure of who we are in Christ. So as a way to continually remember who God is, and who we are in Him, many of us are once again reading through the Bible in a year. In addition to reading we are also using a tool called "SOAP Journaling" to help us listen well and process what we are learning about God. You can learn more about SOAP here If you want to download the reading plan, you can find it here. This weeks readings are also listed below.
