Sermon Series- Pray Like Jesus
Most of us are familiar with the Lord’s Prayer. But are we as familiar with the intent of this prayer? That is, why did Jesus instruct his followers to pray these specific things? Could it be that these are the very things that are most important to God? Find out more in a new sermon series beginning January 14. Learn to pray about the things that Jesus prayed about.
Jesus said, “If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move…(Matthew 17:20). In Adult Forum, we are exploring what Jesus meant by that. This is a multifaceted course led by Bob Henson. There will be lecture, video presentations, a book to read, experiences and stories to tell. Sneak preview: Christians have more power at their disposal than they can possibly imagine.
Breakfast snacks are available at 8:45 a.m. The class begins at 9:00 a.m. sharp.
Wednesday Morning Women’s Bible Study – Killing Kryptonite starts January 10th
Just like Superman, who can leap over any hurdle and defeat every foe, followers of Christ have the supernatural ability to conquer the challenges we face. But the problem for both Superman and us is there’s a kryptonite that steals our strength.
Of course, both Superman and kryptonite are fictional. But spiritual kryptonite is not. Join us as we learn what our kryptonite is and how to conquer it so we can live life victoriously.
Tuesday Evening Women’s Bible Study starting January 9
Tuesday Evening Women’s Bible Study begins January 23 @ 7:00 Pm in the Grace Living Room
This study of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy covers Israel’s emergence from slavery in Egypt, receiving God’s law at Mount Sinai, and wandering in the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. We see Jesus pictured in the unblemished lambs who died that first Passover night, in the pillar of fire that guided God’s people, the manna that fed them, and the rock that gushed with water for them to drink. In the law of God given to Moses, we discover a picture of the only person who has ever obeyed God perfectly. In every aspect of the tabernacle, the priesthood, the laws for clean and unclean we see the way Jesus saves us and cleanses us and loves us.

Men’s Bible Study – Saturday mornings
Grace Anglican’s Saturday Men’s Bible Study has followed Jesus through the Gospel according to Mark and the Acts of the Apostles. Along the way, we’ve learned we don’t need to understand everything about Jesus to follow him.
Still, we’ve changed as we followed. Truthfully, it’s been a struggle: part of us wants to leave off the journey and do things the way we always have; but another urges us to move on to the new things he sets before us. We’ve been seized by something bigger than we imagined; and it insists firmly that we stay the course and see things through to the end.
This odd, compelling journey of following Jesus has given us an unexpected blessing: company! Jesus never travels alone. In this new company, we find encouragement to become the disciple Jesus wants. If we’re honest, we acknowledge it’s hard; if we’re open, we can be helped by Jesus and the others; if we’re humble, we’ll take the help.
Now, the company of Grace Anglican’s Saturday Men’s Bible Study turns its eyes and ears to four brothers who can help us immensely. Join us Saturday mornings as we hear what James, Paul, Peter, and John learned by following Jesus. These guys saw and heard the risen Lord; and they are ready to help us change further—if we’ll take it.
The company of Grace Anglican’s Men’s Bible Study meets Saturday mornings as early as 7:30 for coffee and fellowship. Breakfast is served at 8:00. Reading and discussion of the Bible kicks off at 8:30. We complete our time together at 9:30. All are welcome.
Come, follow the Lord Jesus in our company as we strive to project his image into a world that is desperate for his mercy, truth, and grace.

Sunday afternoon – Ignite Student Ministry
Students in 6th-12th grade gather for dynamic worship and study, as well as time to hang out and grow as a youth community on Sunday afternoons from 12-2:30pm in the Classroom after the service. We are currently participating in Youth Alpha.
Shrove Tuesday- February 13
On February 13th, Grace will have its Second Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Diner. It will take place from 6-7:30 pm. It will cost $5 per single or $10 per family. We will serve pancakes, bacon, and sausage along with orange juice and coffee. Everyone is welcome and feel free to stop by anytime between 6-7:30 to get your fill of fellowship and grub.
Ash Wednesday- February 14
Address: 24968 Katy Ranch Rd, Katy, TX 77494
Directions: From I-10 exit Katy Ft Bend road, go south on Katy Fort Bend road, then turn east(left) onto Market Place road.
“In my opinion, the two most important and powerful services of the year are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. They take us to the heart of the Christian faith in a way other services do not. I encourage you to experience the imposition of ashes and to hear the words, “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.” It will do your spirit good.” – Fr. Bob
We will have child care and a children’s service.
Engage Training on February 17
The Engage: Equip Training is designed to prepare volunteers to do this simple thing: engage teenagers in ongoing relationship, centered around reading the Bible together.
The method- Talk. Study. Pray.
Many people are capable of helping young people to follow Christ but just need some encouragement and basic training in order to get started. Engage works around the simple idea of equipping older Christians to meet regularly with one or more young people to:
- Talk with them to get to know them and discuss matters of faith,
- Study the Bible
- Pray together.
This is a simple method of engaging young people in the faith. Yet for many, this kind of ministry has never been modeled for us, so starting out can be a little intimidating. Engage will help equip ordinary members of congregations through a weekend of training. The trainers are members of the Young Anglicans Project who are experienced youth ministry trainers. But that’s not all! Young Anglicans Project will provide ongoing support through a select team of coaches committed to helping individuals grow in their role of discipling young people.
When: February 17 from 9 am – 5 pm
Where: here at Grace Anglican Community
Coffee, snacks, and Lunch will be provided with the price of admission.
Good Friday – March 30
If a person can make only one service each year, it should be Good Friday. On this day, we are confronted with the awful reality of our sin and our need for a savior. That savior is Jesus, who atoned for human sin by being crucified. In the greatest demonstration of love ever, Jesus endured the unspeakable horror of death on a cross in our place. This should take our breath away. As the lyrics of the old spiritual say, “It causes me to tremble, tremble.” Our Good Friday service will be at 7:00 p.m. on March 30. There will be a program for children five years through fifth grade and child care for children under five.
Easter Sunday – April 1
The angel asked, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?” Jesus is risen and his resurrection changes everything. Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He has been given preeminence above all others. He is the name above all names and is to be worshiped, honored, and obeyed. Join us in celebrating the event that changed the world. There will be a special program for children five years through fifth grade and child care for children under five. The Lord is risen, indeed!
Palm Sunday- March 25
On Palm Sunday, we remember the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Riding down the Mount of Olives on the back of a donkey, Jesus fulfilled the ancient prophecy of Zechariah that the messiah would enter in just such a way. It is the beginning of a divinely orchestrated chain of events that would culminate in the death and resurrection of the Son of God. Join in the liturgical re-enactment of that day. Come, sing, “Hosanna to the King of Kings.”
