Connect Team Conversations 60 Second Trailer
Welcome to the Connect Team Conversations, a resource dedicated to helping encourage Grace Church volunteers to create a welcoming environment and connect people to the mission of our Church. Living in a world where so many people are only looking out for themselves, it is difficult to recognize what true biblical hospitality looks like. The scriptures tell us that we are each given a unique set of gifts, talents, and abilities for the specific purpose of serving the Lord and building up the church. Each week on the podcast we will hear from members of our Connect Team as they share their stories, discuss weekly tips and talk about why serving is such a vital role in our discipleship journey. Consider subscribing on iTunes, or whatever podcast provider you prefer so you can be notified with each new episode.
