Grace Groups will be resuming in the next couple weeks! This is one way we live in community with one another as the body of Christ. These smaller groups provide opportunities for members to dig deeper into God’s Word, care for one another, pray for one another, and pursue discipleship relationships. For more information on the different Grace Groups, go to graceofthevalley.org/grace-groups or contact Matt Thibault at firstname.lastname@example.org or (559) 967-0528.
On Sunday, September 20, our Equipping Classes for students and adults and Sunday School classes for children will resume. There are three adult class options: Hebrews taught by Scott Bucher, Being Human taught by David Morris, and Fundamentals of the Faith taught by Don Klassen and team. For more information on all these classes, please go to graceofthevalley.org/equipping-classes.
All women are invited to an outdoor dessert fellowship on Saturday, Septermber 5, at 6:30 pm at Lori Jackson's house (40952 Rd 32, Kingsburg).

Men’s Equippers | September 9
We are excited for the launch of our fall series on “The Gospel: The Power of God for Salvation.” This seven-week series aims to equip men to master the basics of the gospel so that they can believe it with all their being and be ready to share it with others. The group will work through a small booklet on the gospel that can be used in future evangelism and small-group study. We are starting Wednesday, September 9, at 6:00 am in the Generations Building.
1824 | September 9
GCV's ministry for college-aged young adults, 1824, will be launching for the fall on Wednesday, September 9. The first week will be our kickoff barbecue at GCV at 6:00 pm. We will be meeting every Wednesday at 6:30 pm after that and would love to have you join us as we study what God’s word says about singleness, dating, engagement, and marriage. Contact Pastor Matt for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
