This is Grandparents Weekend, and we invite all grandparents to join us for worship. This weekend, we are continuing our “Difference Makers” sermon series with a message entitled “Home Improvement.” All of us have a deep desire to make a difference with our one and only life, and I don’t believe there is anywhere we want to make a greater difference with our lives than with our families.
All through scripture, we find a huge emphasis on the multi-generational impact a father or mother have on their children. Proverbs 10:7 says “The name of the righteous is used in blessings, but the name of the wicked will rot.” The choice is ours. We build a legacy where our children and grandchildren will rise up and curse us, or they will rise up and bless (praise) us.
To be praised by future generations, we must live for something other than ourselves. We must remember that what we do and who we are will have a powerful multi-generational impact. Dan Folgelberg wrote a song once called 'Leader of the Band' as a dedication to his dad. One of the great lines in that song is, 'I'm just a living legacy to the leader of the band.' We all need to look at ourselves and our children and ask “What do I want to leave them? Do I want to leave money, or do I want to leave a legacy?”
This is a weekend to remember! Pia Star, a professional photographer, will be taking family pictures following each service..at no charge to you!!
Please invite your friends and family members to join you in worship this weekend! We do continue to follow recommended “social distancing” guidelines. We have closed off every other row of seats, and we request that you put two empty seats between you and anyone not living in your house. If you are uncomfortable being in the Celebration Center, we offer two other options during our regular service times - Saturday at 6:00pm, Sunday at 9:00am & 11:00am. You may listen to the service live on FM 96.9 while in your car in our parking lot; or, you may join us live online at www.thegraceplace.com/watch. We look forward to seeing you!!
