Happy Thanksgiving from GraceConnect!
Grateful for Grace

This week, Denise from Grace Church in Akron, Ohio (Jeff Bogue, senior pastor), shares her story about meeting God at the end of her rope. As we celebrate Thanksgiving today, stories like this focus our gratitude on the true Source of our every good thing: Jesus Himself.

SEEDNet, a ministry that plants churches in apartment complexes and low-income communities, recently posted the following picture with the caption: "A prostitute struggling to trust & follow Jesus prays for a mom who has 3 kids in prison at our Coshocton, Ohio, church plant." What a testament to how God is using the ministry to introduce others to the Savior! Click here to view the post. 


Encompass World Partners has been preparing for the release of a new 31–day prayer guide and the development of a campaign called the Global Prayer Journey, which will orient churches to the many countries where our movement is operating. They write:

"In our excitement to develop a new prayer resource and subsequent campaign that links it together with a call to respond through the annual Day of Generosity offering in February of 2017, we forgot to share how that would impact what has become an annual tradition for many churches who have been participating in the offering on the first Sunday of November."

Here is the link to an update posted by Encompass about Day of Generosity.
