Through our annual Christmas Angel Tree program, Grace Church, in partnership again this year with the Salvation Army, helps to fulfill the holiday hopes and dreams of some local children. The Christmas Angels will be available at the Christmas tree located in the greeting area, beginning Sunday, November 9. Each Angel will include a child’s name and the desired gift, either a toy or clothing. All gifts should be returned unwrapped with the angel tag firmly attached by Tuesday, November 25. Gifts can be left in the church office during the week, or under the Christmas tree in the greeting area. The generous Angel Tree participation by the congregation in past years has helped Christmas wishes come true for so many children. We thank you for your 2014 participation as we welcome the holiday season spirit of giving.
The Daughters of the King will meet Sunday, November 9 immediately following the 10:45 AM service in the Parlor or on Wednesday, November 12 at 10:30 AM in the Conference room. Please attend the meeting that is most convenient for you. We will cover chapter 11 in our study series.
The parish office will be closed for a staff planning day on Tuesday, November 11.
GWAG November 12: #eatprayconnect
GWAG on the 2nd Wednesday each month is an opportunity for all ages to gather for activities to reinforce our connection to one another. Plan to join us for November 12 for Pink Hair, Fried Chicken & Being Thankful…It doesn’t get much better! Fr. Stuart has invited all parishioners to join him and Cynthia in giving thanks for our life together by wearing pink wigs or dying your hair pink. After dinner we will especially share thanks for our Grace family members who for whatever reason, at this time, are not able to join us for worship & parish life activities. We will be creating “Thankful Wreaths” to deliver to those parishioners as a reminder that Every One Really Does Count! more GWAG details
