This week we are kicking off our fourth year of people here at Grace moving their feet to provide clean water for children in Africa. Through Team World Vision’s KC Chapter, walkers and runners come together to train for the KC full or half marathon while also raising funds that support some of our most vulnerable neighbors around the world. More than two dozen people from Grace have participated – maybe this is your year! We have experienced runners, but many of us never thought we’d be able to finish a half marathon – either running or walking – but have made it together. You can, too! So whether you’re looking for a little extra support and motivation to get moving, or are just excited to bring clean water to communities around the world – this is your opportunity!
You can get some introductory information at
or by texting COMMONGRACE to 44888.
Or, you can connect with Pastor Kyle or either of our Grace team captains for additional info or questions: Shara Embree ([email protected]) or
Tracey Nicodemus ([email protected]).Hope to see you on the trail!

The Good Faith Network is a justice organization that Grace supports. Our big event, the Nehemiah Assembly, will be held on Tuesday, May 2nd at 6 pm at Resurrection UMC. Our three issues are Ending Homelessness, Affordable Housing, and Mental Health Crisis Care. We will present these along with our proposed solutions to local officials.

Do you want to engage in Bible study but maybe you don’t have the time to come for a class? Check out this new podcast. Listen to weekly episodes on your commute while doing chores, or even at work. Submit your questions and reflections to be a part of the conversation.

Our first five weeks will explore the book of Jonah. This story of a stubborn prophet and a stubborn God is a classic Sunday school story that can shed light on what this grace thing is all about. Click here to listen in.
