Hi Good News family!
Given that today is September 11th — the 18th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks — please take a moment to thank God for the first responders, and pray that those who lost loved ones that terrible day will turn to Jesus for comfort in their loss.
Now here’s the Chapel news…

> EXPLORE 6+ COMMON WORLD-VIEWS vs. THE BIBLICAL WORLD-VIEW IN THE LT1 CLASS AT 8:30AM THIS SUNDAY What common assumptions about life do people you work with or live with or go to school with hold — frequently unconsciously? What does a Biblical worldview assume? Come find out this Sunday at 8:30am in the lower Chapel. All welcome, even if you haven’t been to a LT1 class yet.
> PETER & VICTORIA SMITH ARE AT GNBC THIS SUNDAY + PIZZA LUNCH Peter will be preaching the second message in the new sermon series called “Believe” at 10:45am this Sunday.
You will have the opportunity to evaluate his message on a form tucked in the Program. Fill it out and put your finished form in the Acts 4:32 Box at the door at the end of the service.
Immediately after the service there will be a Pot Luck Lunch and time to talk with Peter and Victoria so plan now to stay for lunch. The Chapel will provide the pizza. Please bring salads and desserts.
> THANKS!! We had a great launch last Sunday of Good News Kids (SS)! Many thanks to the parents who have updated their child’s Sunday School registration form. If you have not filled one out yet, please get a form at the Check-in Station in the Upper Lobby. – Susan Ferris, GNK Director

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
Only by grace,
