Father-Child Camping and Cookout
Friday, June 14th at 6:00 p.m.
Dads! Mark Friday night June 14th for our third-annual Camp at the ‘Pointe! We will start at 6:00pm. Bring a tent, sleeping bags and air mattresses and get comfortable down by the creek here on our property. We are close to home, have power and running water and of course our fire pit. We have some games planned and we will provide the hot dogs, marshmallows and drinks. You bring your children (boys and girls welcome!)- ages 4 and up, flashlights, guitars and some good fireside stories of when you were a boy. - The cost is $5 a person and covers all food, games, activities and glow-sticks!
This is the stuff that memories are made of so set some time aside this spring and don’t miss the opportunity.

Plan B – A Single Mom’s Life
GracePointe is excited to launch a ministry for the Single Moms in our fellowship. It doesn’t matter how you became a single mom, but it does matter that you feel and find encouragement, strength and support from one another. Please join us on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Worship Center as we share wisdom and advice with each other as we study My Single Mom Life by author Angela Thomas.
Childcare will be provided at no charge and every participant will receive Angela’s book. Please sign up at the WinGS Kiosk so we can add you to the email list and order books. Feel free to contact Suzanne Edwards at 615-708-1117 or [email protected] for additional information. Also, connect with us on Facebook: Gracepoint Single Moms Ministry.
My Single Mom Life
The day Angela Thomas sold the only thing she had, the diamond from her engagement ring, to take care of her kids was the day she began to believe they were going to make it. In that decision, the faith she had always talked about became the faith she was going to learn how to live. In the years since, God has given Angela a passionate desire… to live an amazing life even while raising four kids as a single mom. In this book she shares her hard-earned wisdom on loneliness, dating, finances, and parenting, encouraging every solo mom. “As a gift to our children,” she says, “we can become healthy moms who are strong and amazing women in spite of our circumstances.”
A Lenten Prayer
The following is our Prayer for the Lenten Season. It was written by Matthew Paul Turner.
May our love resemble Your love.
May our love exist for all people.
May our love encourage life & hope, sacrifice much, & seek a pathway of humility.
May our love heal wounds, physical & spiritual.
May our love resist fear, challenge ignorance, & embody mercy, grace, & resurrection.
May our love empower forgiveness, tolerance, dialogue, patience, & peace.
May our love mend what is broken, rebuild what is torn down, bridge what is divided, & refill what is empty.

WinGS FUEL Bag Collection
The Williamson County School System has more than one school where over 50% of the children in the school qualify for the ”Free Lunch Program”. There is lack of food security for children in some of our schools, which means they do not have enough food at home on weekends or holidays. Graceworks Ministries created a program providing FUEL BAGS, small bags of nutritious and easy-to-serve food items, for children at one of the local schools. Teachers discreetly pack the bags in the children’s backpacks on Fridays before they leave for the weekend, and it will supplement their food at home. WE NEED YOUR HELP! The WinGS team is collecting food to donate to Graceworks Ministries for these FUEL BAGS each Sunday.
Items needed this month:
- Shelf stable milk
- Cereal or granola bars
- Small packages of raisins
There will be a RED WAGON in front of the WinGS Kiosk on the front porch for you to drop off your donation on Sunday mornings.
