CHRISTMAS OUTREACH We’re looking forward to Saturday, December 14, because the annual Christmas Outreach is one of the best days of the year at Grace. We’re expecting to register 200 families, including about 500 children. That means a lot of help will be needed from the congregation to donate toys, food, sort toys, counsel and assist during the outreach service. If you didn’t get a volunteer information card, stop by the iBooth, pick one up and commit to being involved with this great time of ministry. We guarantee you’ll enjoy it!
"A Christmas Gathering" is a fun and exciting holiday event for the ladies! It's described as "Oprahs's Favorite Things" meets "HGTV" combined with "Pinterest Live." Tickets and details are available right here on the website.
CHRISTMAS PRODUCTION Sunday, December 15, in both morning services, the Worship Arts Ministry will present “Tell Me The Story.” While stranded in a snow storm, a grandfather shares his wisdom about Christmas with his granddaughter. After each service the CrossRoads classes will once again host a fabulous reception, with tables beautifully decorated and laden with a delicious array of hors d’oeuvres and desserts. This is a perfect time to invite your friends and family to church.
STUDENT CHRISTMAS BANQUET Teens, get out your ugliest Christmas sweater and make plans to attend the Youth Ministry’s annual Christmas Banquet December 13. You can pick up more information at the G.Y.M. or call Jeremiah at the church.
