Footsteps of Jesus (Feb 23-24)


Have you ever wanted to see and hear the actual places Jesus walked?

On Feb. 23, Bible scholar Bob Rognlien and Film Director Andrew Chalmers will be showing “The Footsteps of Jesus,” a free pre-screening film release based on the life and locations of Jesus. This will take you through a journey to the Holy Land, showing what it would be like to make the pilgrimage yourself.

On Feb. 24 they will be leading a virtual/multimedia experience of walking through the life of Jesus. The common response from most is that once you experience this virtual walk-thru, you will never read the Bible the same way again. It will be as close as you can get to visiting the places Jesus walked while staying in Fort Wayne. Follow this link to sign up for either or both of these amazing opportunities.

Leadership Conference (Mar 8-9)


This year’s theme: Church: Monday – Saturday

Leadership Conference is almost here, and everyone is invited! This year we wanted to highlight the importance of having fun together, rest, and rekindling our imaginations for what God has for us in this season! We will dream and discuss what it looks like to step out in faith and live into the good things He has prepared!

What to Expect:

Friday March 8th (6:30pm-8:30pm)
Food, fun, and celebration! Join us for a catered meal and an evening of appreciation for all the amazing people in our church family!

Saturday March 9th (8:00am-2:00pm)
Join us as we explore what it means to lead through living our faith in our everyday lives. We will hear from many of our friends and leaders on how we can explore how God wants to use your story to impact the circles around you.


Baptisms (Mar 10)


Grace Gathering East is celebrating baptisms on March 10th! Baptism is going public about your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heartfelt commitment to following Him. It’s an important act of obedience that God’s Spirit rewards in a very special and personal way. If you feel you would like to take this important step of faith, sign up here.


After Service Brunch (Mar 17)


Join us on March 17 for another after-service carry-in brunch! Bring a brunch dish to share, and we will eat a meal together directly following the service.


Easter Eggstravaganza (Mar 17)


This Easter, we are partnering with the Parkview YMCA for our Easter Eggstravaganza! This is a children’s event for ages 0-11 and will include lots of games, prizes, and an Easter Egg Hunt! This will be at 1:00-3:00pm at the Parkview YMCA. We are in need of volunteers and prize donations, so reach out to kyle.tennant@gracegathering.com for questions!
