Celebrating Citizenship

 

During a recent worship service at GraceCrossings, Pastor Dan McDowell congratulated Grace who just received her American citizenship. Born in Uganda, it has been quite a journey! The church family joined in Grace’s joy and excitement, celebrating with reception after the service. It was a remarkable moment for Grace and for GraceCrossings who has supported her throughout the process.

Memory Game

 

At a meeting of the ABWM leadership team, Conference Registrar and Secretary Jodie Vasbinder had the ladies perform a team building exercise with each lady getting a glimpse of a building block configuration and the having to go back to their team to duplicate it from memory. The teams found it challenging to remember the complex design and did great working together to accomplish their mission.
