Explore Your God-Given Talents
January 6, February 10, February 24, March 10 and March 24.
In 2019, middle school and high school youth will meet for Sunday school in February and March on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. Pastor Karn will help the youth understand their top Talents as assessed by a tool called StrengthsFinder. Each youth will be celebrated for who they are and begin to understand how they can use their gifts for good in the world. All youth who want to participate must take an online assessment. They will be able to take the assessment after church on January 6 or at home. Please speak with Pastor Karn with any questions and let her know if you or your student will be participating. This is appropriate for youth ages 12-18.
Contact Pastor Karn for questions and to receive a code with instructions for taking the assessment.

Serve Pancakes at Grace- Jan 20

Grace is now officially certified by Maricopa County to serve food to the public! This means they are wanting as many helpers as possible to get a Food Employee Certificate (formerly a Food Handlers Card).The card can be obtained for only $8.00 and it is good for 3 years (for an extra $2.00 you can choose an option to be able to print out your card anytime during the 3 year period.) To take a simple test and receive your Food Employee Certificate go to http://www.azfoodhandlers.com/Register3.aspx.
2019 dates are Jan 20, March 17, May 19, July 21, Sept 15, and Nov 17.
