Concert on Friday, March 29. Our friend and former AGLC Minister of Music, Eddie Vandewalker, is bringing his musical groups to Abiding Grace for a concert on Friday, March 29, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Performing will be the Concert Choir, Guitar Ensemble, and Instrumental Ensemble from Mid-America Christian University, Oklahoma City. The concert is entitled "Give Us Peace" and calls us to spread peace through music. There will be a variety of sacred and secular songs of varied styles from around the world. All are welcome!
Lenten worship. Please join us this and every Wednesday evening in Lent for a brief worship service at 7:00 p.m.
GRACE Transitional Housing drive. During the season of Lent, we will be collecting items to outfit an apartment for GRACE. The GRACE Transitional Housing program works with homeless individuals and families to help move them towards independence. At the Outreach kiosk you will find lists of items needed. You can then sign up to provide items which you will bring to church. If you have any questions, please contact Lori Anderson.
Easter lilies. You can purchase an Easter lily to decorate the chancel for Easter Sunday morning. The cost is $10/plant, and you can include a dedication in honor or memory of a loved one. Sign up at the Worship kiosk, and please put your payment in the offering plate (marked “Easter Lily”).
Topgolf! Our April youth outing (grades 6-12) will be at Topgolf in The Colony. The event is planned for Sunday, April 28, after worship. If you are interested, please contact Taylor so she can get an accurate count. Chaperones are needed, too.
The College Care Committee will be sending Easter care packages to our twelve college students on April 7. If you would like to contribute baked goods or snacks, please bring them to church on Sunday, April 7. We are also accepting cash donations for postage. Please place them in the College Care box on the Member Care kiosk. Thank you for your support. See Susie Griffin or Karen Williams for questions.
