Latest News for Grace Leaders Network

A Busy Couple of Weeks...


Our Grace Leaders Network met this past Tuesday, January 10th, at the church campus of Pastor Manuel Espinosa at Iglesia Cristiana de la Comunidad. We had time of prayer and sharing during the morning (un gran día) then enjoyed an amazing lunch prepared by his wife, Raquel & faithful member Christina!
Thanks to Manuel and Raquel for blessing us!


As you can see below, there are many opportunities to connect coming up through the end of January!  We hope you'll look at the sidebar of Upcoming Events and make the most of these opportunities (plus see the details below)!

Because of the Focus Retreat (don't forget to register...and see the scholarships too!), we won't have a February Grace Leaders Network Gathering.
