The Coffee Club: Last Days Discussion


"The end is the world is happening on this date!" How many times have we read reports or heard people make these bold predictions? To many to count and even though we know it isn't true, we stop and consider the future. What does God really say about the "last days"? Can anyone really predict the end? What is the rapture and who is taken and why?

These are just a few of the topics we will be discussing, come and listen as Brent Hardgrave leads our discussion on what the Bible says about the end of the earth.

Fall Life On Mission Opportunities


Here are two opportunities for us to put our faith into action and live life on mission:

The Grace Falls family and friends are encouraged to support Pastor Alonzo Johnson and his wife Rhonda of Northeast Community Outreach as they host a Community Fall Party. This family-friendly event will be held Saturday, October 22, 11am–3pm, in Wissinoming Park in Philadelphia. Help them to connect with this community as you serve food, encourage game participation and celebrate the transitioning season!

Participants are encouraged to meet at the McNickle’s home at 9am on Saturday to caravan to the park. Please send Pastor Buff a text message or email to verify that you will attend.

> The NeighborHOOD Church

Following the Sunday Gathering, the Grace Falls family is encouraged to support new church plant Pastor Ken Richardson of The NeighborHOOD Church as they host their first Neighborhood Fall Party. This family-friendly event will be held Sunday, October 23, 2–5pm, 2516 Snyder Av. Philadelphia.

Dress comfortably. We will leave after the Gathering and stop for lunch as we caravan together. Please send Pastor Buff a text message or email to indicate if you will attend and if you can provide transportation.

Neighborhood Fall Party


Our Neighborhood Fall Party was a huge success. We had many new faces join us as we enjoyed a relaxing day of fun day under a beautiful October sky. The children enjoyed games, a cupcake walk, scavenger hunt, and a hayride. They received tickets for each activity they took part in, so at the end of the day, they traded their tickets for prizes!

A group of high school students from First Baptist, Albertville, Alabama, joined us to help to host the events. While they made sure that the children had fun at the games, our Grace Falls family members were free to interact with our guests.

The food was delicious as we enjoyed roasted pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, and a variety of dishes and desserts that features some delicious fall recipes!

Next weekend, the Grace Falls family will travel to assist two fellow church planters who will be hosting similar events in their neighborhoods on Saturday and Sunday.
