A Deep and Heartfelt Thank You!

Jenna and I are so humbled to be a part of such a healthy church. The difference you have made in our lives and our family is significant. I say often, that we are raising our families together. It’s so true. Our children are stronger and better because of the relationships they’ve formed here at Grace. Jenna and I are strengthened by your faith and friendship. Thank you to each and every one who volunteers your time to lead our Grace Groups, student ministries and children’s ministries. Thank you for serving across the campus and community within our serve teams. What a church! What a difference you continue to make.

This past weekend was Pastor Appreciation Sunday. Thank you to our elders, Tony Gallimore, Martin Ratcliffe, Ron Jones and Andrew Kerr for leading this. Honor is a core value of our church and I know I speak for our team when I say, we feel both humbled and honored by our church family. Thank you for giving in the special offering. Thank you for every heartfelt word of appreciation and for every card. Many of them have made me tear up with joy. 

Our team wanted to also express their appreciation to you:

“It’s an honor to serve the kids and families at Grace World. My family is consistently touched by all of the love our church shows us. We love and appreciate each of you and are blown away we get to serve this body.” – Jacob & Jeverna King

“Grace, Analysa and I are so thankful to be part of a church family in which honor is a value of the house. Thank you for the gifts, cards, the letters, the baked goods and tokens of love that each of you so generously have given. It is something we never expect but to hear your words of encouragement has deeply moved us and reminds us of the health of the house. A big thank you for all you have done!” – Chris & Analysa Fullam

“What a privilege and honor it is to be serving you here at Grace. I must admit that words seem extremely inadequate to express the thankfulness we have for your generosity. We hear it often but it’s so true, “There is no place like Grace.” ” – Donnie and Cindy Lewis

“Grace family, on behalf of Andy and I, we want to thank you for all of your love and support – especially during Pastor Appreciation Month. We are so grateful to be a part of a healthy, hungry and honoring church.” – Mindy & Andy Kerr

“Vance and I have been overwhelmed with your beautiful cards, gifts, and words of gratitude, which is evidence that we truly have created a culture of honor here at Grace. What a blessing to walk in our YES together as we forge ahead with all God has for us!” – Debbie and Vance Milton

Grace, you are served so well with a pastoral team that is amongst the best I’ve seen. Thank you for showing love, gratitude and appreciation to each one of them this month. I hope you’ll continue to share with them the difference they are helping to make in your life, family and our community.  

Blessings In Christ,


PS:  This weekend we continue in our “Return of the King Series”. I have enjoyed taking this fresh journey through the book of Revelation with you.
