The OC Marathon is taking place Sunday, May 3, 2015. There will be several road closures that morning, so to assist you in getting to Grace Fellowship Church, we have the suggested routes listed below:
From Long Beach - Take 405 South to the 73 South Freeway, exit Campus/Irvine. Turn left on Campus Drive and left again on Bristol Street. Turn right on Red Hill Avenue (north bound lanes will be opened).
From Orange/Fullerton - Take 55 South to 73 South Freeway, exit Campus/Irvine. Turn left on Campus Drive and left again on Bristol Street. Turn right on Red Hill Avenue (north bound lanes will be opened).
From Laguna Beach/Irvine - Take 73 Freeway, exit Birch Street. Follow Birch Street as it turns into Bristol. Turn right on Red Hill Avenue (north bound lanes will be opened).
Areas to avoid are as follows: Red Hill Avenue - South bound lanes will be closed from Main Street (Irvine) to Mesa Drive (Costa Mesa). Therefore, the Baker and Paularino thoroughfare streets to Red Hill will be closed at Red Hill. In addition, South bound vehicles on Bristol Street will not be able to turn left onto Red Hill Avenue.

Happy 2015 from the De Blauw family! What a joy we have in Jesus Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith! (Hebrews 12:1-2)
First off, thank you to all who helped us meet the 2014 goal of raising 50% of our month-to-month pledges. We’re now at 52%! We thank the Lord for this affirmation and are grateful to our team of supporters.
We recently received word from our Team Leader in Lyon, Mike DiGena, that one of the gentleman Garrett had multiple, in-depth, spiritual conversations with while in France, has committed his life to the Lord! We are filled with joy at this news and honored to play a small part in this man’s life.
Here is what 2015 looks like for us as we prepare for missions in Lyon:Working to reach 100% of our month-to-month support by June 2015Meeting with potential ministry partners/supporters, both individuals and churchesTaking 2 classes, Perspectives: On The World Christian Movement and another called Pre-Field Training OnlineAttending the 9 day Pre-Field Live training in Minnesota this AprilLord willing, moving to France this June and beginning our French language immersion schoolWe are living in this “now but not yet” reality as we work to raise support for this mission to share Christ’s salvation with the people of Lyon, France. It can be challenging in this in-between stage, not settled in our home country yet not deployed to our target city, Lyon. In spite of this, we are encouraged by the Holy Spirit to live each day seeking/serving Him… “Who or what does the Lord have for us this day?”
