"The LORD said,'Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD. Look, the LORD is ready to pass by.'

 

A very powerful wind went before the LORD, digging into the mountain and causing landslides, but the LORD was not in the wind.

 

After a windstorm, there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake.

 

After the earthquake, there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire.

 

After the fire, there was a soft whisper. When Elijah heard it, he covered his face with his robe and stood at the entrance to the cave. All of a sudden, a voice asked him

 

'Why are you here, Elijah?'"

 

(1 Kings 19:11-13)

Ministry Updates

Andrew and Kat are beginning to plan out the Passion Collective curriculum for the next year. This is a collaborative effort so if you have any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas, we are all ears...especially if you are Passion Collective Alumni!

Passion Collective Preparation

We have several people coming off their term on the Grace House Board. As a result, we are hosting a board training session in June to ensure everyone is properly onboarded for their upcoming adventure!

Board Transitions & Training

Since things are a little slower in the summer from a programming perspective, Andrew and Kat will be working on some house projects throughout the summer. If you would like to lend a hand, let us know!

House Projects

Upcoming Events

This coming Friday night (May 24) is MOVIE NIGHT at Grace House. While there aren't a great deal of students on campus, Andrew and Kat have been making inroads with some lonely students. The movie will start at 7pm and snacks will be available. After the movie, we will have a short discussion regarding the ethical situations associated with the movie.

Movie Night: The Imitation Game

Back by popular demand is our pop-up coffee. The first one will be on Thursday, June 6 from 2-5pm. Coffee service will be limited on that day to 1-2 coffee drinks. Feel free to join us in greeting our students!

Pop-up Coffee

FASET (New student/Freshman) orientation is right around the corner with the first one occurring mid-June.
