I Peter 4:8-10

Most importantly, love each other deeply, because love will cause many sins to be forgiven. Open your homes to each other, without complaining. Each of you has received a gift to use to serve others. Be good servants of God’s various gifts of grace.

Gracious Hospitality Class Fall 2007

It is always a blessing to work along side women who love the Lord. Their willing hearts make it a pleasure just to get to know them. With all their hard work and willingness to learn we have grown in God's word and created memories that will last a lifetime. I believe their homes will be a rich environment for the spreading of the gospel, meeting the needs of "strangers", and ministering to missionaries and teachers of the Word. Their homes will also be filled with God's blessing of good food, great times, sincere relationships and lots of joy and laughter as they practice their gifts of "Gracious Hospitality".

Making Pastries

Specially baked pies and cakes are always a welcome gift. Welcoming others into our home for coffee and pie creates an opportunity for lifelong friendships to grow.

Bed and Breakfast

What an honor and a blessing to be able to take care of traveling missionaries and teachers of the gospel. In 3rd John, Gaius is commended for the care he gives those who travel for the sake of Christ. He is also is instructed to send them on their way in a manner that is worthy of Jesus Christ. It is our desire that our own homes become a restful and nourishing place that will be a blessing to those who are actively spreading of the gospel throughout our world.
