Grace Adventures Prayer Partners
Dear Prayer Partners,
Praise God for answered prayers!! The Fall Celebration Event was held on October 13. It was a time to celebrate what God has done through His people and Grace Adventures along with publically launching the Above & Beyond Campaign. So far this year, over 350 significant spiritual decisions have been made! We shared that Grace continues to come alongside our youth and family equipping them to know God, surrender to Him and make Him known, along with why we are being called to expand our ministries to include serving more families on and off campus. The rest of the evening focused on how Grace is preparing to move Above & Beyond our current ministries and expand our reach to serve 1400 families a year with the construction of a family campground scheduled to open summer 2016.
Fifteen years ago the board and staff created a vision of training people and families to help them become tomorrow’s leaders. Today we’re living that vision. With this goal at the core of our daily lives, Grace has experienced tremendous growth in the number of people served and more importantly the number of lives changed. We also upgraded and expanded facilities and attracted caring and compassionate staff.
We held three Women’s Retreats in October. Almost 700 women came to be refreshed and challenged to Impact Their World With Jesus Christ. We continue to see God transform lives through His people and Grace Adventures. Over the next several months we will be serving retreat groups, holding a FUEL Student Leadership Conference, preparing for our 2015 Winter Blast ministry to over 1200 Jr and Sr High Students from around Michigan, launching our Student Leadership Program for High School and College Students, mailing out the 2015 Summer Camp Brochure, up-grading activity sites, repairing facilities from a year’s worth of ministry and much more.
I believe that God continues to change lives and bless Grace Adventures because we have assembled a group of people who pray for us daily, weekly and monthly. Prayer is foundational to all that happens here. As you can see we still have lots of activity going on both on and off campus. Would you continue to pray for God’s leading, safety, and provision as we strive to finish the year well and as we make plans for 2015.
In His Service,
