Meet the Freiese’s – Connections 2/5/14

Grace Community Family  – MEET THE FRIESE’S

Good afternoon every one! I hope that your week is going great and trusting that God is continuing to bless each and every one of you! This week we are going to get to know the Friese’s just a little bit better! What a Fun & Fantastic Family they are!  Tell us about your family… We were married during college in 2002. We have three beautiful children, Evelyn (8), Naomi (6), and Isaiah (4). We’ve lived in New Ulm since the fall of 2006. Steve works in Morgan, MN and Anna is a “home-maker”. We like to talk and socialize. We love having people over for yummy meals prepared by Steve and love to get to know new people!  What brought you to GCC?….  We have been connected with other GCC members since we moved here. We had a desire to fellowship in our own community, but had trouble finding a home church until GCC began gathering regularly. What GCC activities/groups do you participate in?  We host a Bible study in our home and participate in a small group with members from GCC and other churches. Anna has been a part of MOPS since the fall of 2006 and enjoys that ministry immensely. If you could share 1 thing with everyone you talked to about why you attend GCC, what would it be? We have found that God has given us a close network of friends with whom we serve our community with. GCC is where we come together as a whole to turn our eyes upon Jesus and share His good works.
