This Weekend

I know this is dated but for those of you who are old enough or for those of you who have access to You Tube check out the song “High Hopes” by Frank Sinatra.  Here is the chorus, “But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes; He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes”.  We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t have high hopes and high expectations of people we interact with and even God.  The thing is, during Lent can we give up our high expectations, or even should we?  To find out check out this Sunday’s Lenten message on, “if and how our expectations and God’s purposes for us connect in any way, shape or form”.  See you Sunday J

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.
