Grace is holding its fourth annual all-church retreat on May 4-6 at the Mount Hermon Conference Center. Register here starting February 11 (space is limited).

Guest Speaker

Our very own Rev. Britton Wood (!) will be speaking on the topic of COMMUNITY:

  1. The centrality of community: To be human is to be connected
  2. The center of community: Community is created by a common center - Christ
  3. The character of community: Community is shaped by its center - Christ
  4. The call of the community: This community has a mission - Christ’s

For those of you that don't know him, Britton is from Birmingham, Alabama and attended Vanderbilt University. He and his wife, Elizabeth, met serving RUF at the University of Tennessee. After attending Covenant Seminary they served RUF at the University of South Carolina for 4 years before moving to Stanford. They have 2 sets of identical twin girls! Britton loves 'bama football, crossfit, and quality TV programming. His favorite color is bacon.
