May 2012 – SERVANT HEARTS and OPEN DOORS!!

SERVANT HEARTS AND OPEN DOORS!

Dear Partner in Grace,

We are thanking God for His continual encouragement and provision for us at Transformed by Grace! Much of God’s provision to us is brought through The Body – through God’s people – who come alongside us to serve our Lord Jesus in love, purpose, grace and truth! On May 15, at our quarterly Board Meeting, we had the joy of meeting with and, then, officially extending an invitation to both Cindy Fallt and Teresa Warren to serve as our two newest TBG Board Members. They both graciously accepted this invitation…this call!
Our Board Members serve as guardians of integrity and purpose for all that we do in every facet of this ministry – whether in our counseling sessions or conference speaking events, in our communication with other ministry leaders or with not-yet-believers. Our Board serves as Shepherd-Protectors of all things accountable – from how we handle the business end and finances of TBG to how we reflect and represent our Lord Jesus Christ to others. These men and women serve as our front-line prayer warriors and our greatest encouragers! It is with joy and thanksgiving that we simultaneously celebrate each individual currently serving on TBG’s Board – Francisco Batres, Keith Brown, Andy Chirico, DeAnne Harland, Tim Mack, Dave Ridderand happily welcome Cindy and Teresa to their new positions! Thank you ALL for your Servant Hearts!

“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,

so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,

filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.”

– Philippians 1:9-11

Current Events and Happenings to be lifting in Prayer!

  • June 5 and 6 – Sylane Mack will be at Mathom House, a Rehabilitation/Detention Center for adolescent sexual perpetrators in Bucks County, PA. Over these two days, she will be speaking to the young men and their therapists in three different therapeutic sessions.  As she has done so many times before since 2003, Sylane will be telling her personal story of abuse and the healing and forgiveness that God offers through His unfailing Love…to every person!
  • June 24 – Sylane will be speaking at an Adult Bible Elective (ABE – aka adult Sunday school!) at Grace Point Church in Newtown, PA (her home church!). She will be telling the story of the story that God had her write: Convinced! The ABE starts at 9:45am – coffee, snacks, questions and answers are all part of what will be offered that morning! Come and invite a friend to hear about God’s transforming love story written in her life!
  • Many more events are already booked for the Fall!

Purposeful Ways to Serve Together in Active, Tangible Love!

  • PRAY with us and for us as we continue to grow as a ministry – pray that we will be filled with the love, grace, truth and wisdom of our Lord Jesus in all we do – administratively and in direct ministry!
  • Spread the word about the ministry of Transformed by Grace to YOUR contacts so we may have many more opportunities to tell of the love, healing, freedom and hope offered through our Lord Jesus Christ! We need you to tell others…so that we may tell!  
  • BTW: Sylane will be in the San Jose, CA area from May 18 – June 2. IF you have contacts in this general region, please help make connections for us! It would be a blessing to have some face-to-face meetings with ministry contacts while Sylane’s on the West Coast. 
  • Become a Partner in Grace – a PinG – with Transformed by Grace today! Your financial and prayer support of this ministry makes a difference in the lives of many – and allows us to share the grace and truth of Jesus Christ in both the intimacy of the counseling relationship and in the publicly presented conferences – locally, nationally and internationally! We, with you, are the Body of Christ – and your gifts supply and support what we do in much needed ways! To become a PinG now, please sign up on our Partner in Grace page on the TBG site OR contact the TBG office at: 215.497.0882, Info@transformedbygrace.org

Remember to connect with Sylane via Facebook!    AND order your copy of CONVINCED!

Remember to join us on the 10th day of each month as we passionately PRAY for God’s life-giving, life-freeing, transforming work to be done in the lives of all with whom we minister – at conferences, counseling sessions, on corners and in coffee shops!

With love and prayers for you all – on behalf of the Board and Staff of Transformed by Grace!

Sylane Mack
