We’ll talk about the meaning and purpose of Small Groups, ways we can grow in our faith, as well as discuss studies that have been meaningful within Small Groups at Grace. RSVP to Community Pastor Stuart Knechtle HERE.

NEWS FROM GRACE FARMS
GRACE FARMS FOUNDATION
UNCHAIN BENEFIT
Saturday, October 14th

Modern slavery is the greatest human rights and humanitarian issue of our time. Between 20-40 million people are trapped in a world of forced labor, sex trafficking, child marriage, and debt bondage that crosses international borders, cultures, and industries. Join Grace Farms Foundation, in collaboration with WPP, Shazam, and Thomson Reuters Foundation, in an effort to launch media fundraising and partnership support for Unchain, a first-of-its-kind international awareness campaign that will create a mass movement to break the chains of slavery once and for all.

You can support the cause and challenge others to see the magnitude of modern slavery by purchasing tickets HERE to the Foundation’s October 14th benefit (including concert-only tickets), donate any amount to help fund the campaign HERE, volunteer for the benefit, connect your companies to this campaign, share posts to your networks about why this issue matters using the #UnchainNow hashtag, or sign up HERE for the Unchain newsletter for updates.
