Once again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The prayer week is continuing today, and tomorrow, Lord-willing, we will continue the prayer marathon. Our goal every year is to begin the year with prayer together, so that God’s grace would continue to pour out on us when we pray. And prayer is, firstly, letting our desires be known to God so that He would in our heart and then with our circumstances, as He sees fit.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:6-7)

God doesn’t offer us a quiet and peaceful life but peace in the heart. This is much more valuable for a believer.

And now a couple important announcements:

1. Men’s winter camp: Registration is open for all brothers, young and not only. Please note that this is approaching very quickly; don’t delay registering. Remember, the main point of such retreats is to study the Scriptures together. This year we’ll be studying 1 Timothy. You can register here: https://mygracefamilychurch.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/1549526

2. Kairos course (evangelism and missions): The Kairos course will be held at our church February 3-12. If you are planning to attend this course, please register as soon as possible. This greatly simplifies logistics, since the course is dependent on how many people have registered.
To find out more about the course, schedule, and registration, visit the website http://gfckairos.com. The last day to register is January 15th.

The Scripture memory text – Luke 9:23-25

23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. 
24 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 
25 For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?
