OVERCOMING  OBSTACLES TO ENTER IN

This Sunday, we will be considering James 4:1 - 10. In our postmodern, post christian world of Canada what are the obstacles to embracing a relationship with God the Father and receiving wisdom. Someone once said that humility is the gateway to wisdom. Review the passage and consider how you can prepare yourself to gain wisdom.

Are you interested in volunteering for Grace’s Table?  The second Friday of every month, SGAC provides a hot meal to those who would find it helpful.  After coordinating 8 meals (May-Dec) the Grace’s Table team has decided it’s time to update their volunteer database.  Go to our website and click on the google form to provide your contact information, which area you are interested in serving (cooking, packing meals, deliveries, greeting, pantry help, clean-up, etc.) and how often you would like to serve.  Join us as we continue to bless our community in 2022.
