1. Graystone now has an app for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android. You can download it by clicking here. This is a great way to help you stay connected in what God is doing in and through Graystone.
2. The vision for Graystone’s first expansion campus had gotten clearer and bigger. We will be reaching out to the unchurched who live in West Walton County. We have changed the name to Graystone Walton. Please be praying for God to lead us to the perfect location to launch our Sunday morning services in 2013.
3. The Financial Team has adjusted the 2012 budget to meet our growing needs. We’ve set aside a large amount of the overage and created a new line item in the budget for Graystone Walton. Thank you so much to everyone who has given so faithfully and generously.
4. This Sunday, September 2, is our 2nd Annual Graystone Serves. Instead of having our regular Sunday services, we will meet at the church at 9:00am and be sent out in teams to various service projects. These are great serving opportunities to do with your kids and all of the projects will be finished by 12:00pm. Click here for more info.
5. In my message, I challenged EVERYONE to bring people to Jesus. We each wrote down three names of people in our “oikos” (sphere of influence). We are to pray for our friends/family daily and invite them to Graystone on Sunday, September 16. This will be the perfect Sunday to bring a friend to church. Also, we have 4 new invite cards for you to use to invite people to church. You can pick them up in the church lobby.
I love you guys. The best is yet to come!
P.S. There were 330 people at the 12pm service. It is growing weekly. Thank you to everyone who has made the move to create more space at the 10:30am service. We now have empty seats for our friends at all 3 services.
