Sanctuary is off to a great start this semester with a really interesting new message series called Good vs. Evil. Students are talking about awareness of the supernatural world and the forces of good and evil.
It takes your partnership to make this ministry possible. The greatest predictor of a student's faith in Christ in adulthood is how much and how often they see the trusted adults around them live that faith out in meaningful, life-changing ways. Please encourage your children and the other youth you can influence to engage the Christian faith in daily life. Sanctuary is one great way that we work with our kids to promote that faith development!
We've got a lot of fun and solid discipleship going on at Sanctuary. We're starting to look ahead to Confirmation for our 8th graders, high school graduation recognitions, and other major milestones. Here's a quick rundown of the schedule for all of our planned youth ministry events through the end of the school year. If you've got any questions, text or call me at 308-999-9027.

Let us know in the office if you have any questions.
As I wrote to you earlier this month, starting on Sunday, January 6, 2019, we will have one worship service in place of our current two services. We are calling this new service Oasis because our vision is for it to be a place of refreshment for weary spiritual travelers from every corner of our dusty world. That means that worship at Spirit of Grace will be at 10:03am weekly.
Dear Spirit of Grace Church,
I’m writing to let you know about exciting new opportunities and important changes coming to our church in 2019. As we look forward to moving from “congregation under development” status to being a full-fledged congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) in just under six months, God has given us the opportunity to take stock of our blessings, marvel at how far we have come in our nearly eight years of existence, and take proactive steps to address future challenges. To set the stage, I would like to share with you what I see as four distinct stages of our life together so far as Spirit of Grace Church:
