Upcoming Events -
Nov 22 - Hanging of the Greens (decorating our church) and our mission will be our shut-ins. We are thankful to them all as they are dedicated to Grace and have many stories to tell us. Please try to visit them and let them know how much we appreciate what they have done for Grace over the years.
Dec - all church Christmas caroling. Everyone on their own for lunch at the mall.
I believe God put us on the corner of 23rd Street and Cleveland Ave for a purpose. We are reaching out to people by doing the food ministry. The Church Life Committee is trying to plan activities to help keep Grace alive. Won't you help by supporting our activities and giving financially.
God Bless Everyone,
...worship, pray, serve, grow
See you on November 22...
All members of the Grace community are welcome and encouraged to worship together on Sunday, Nov. 22, when our guest preacher will be Rev. Dr. Bonnie Bates, EOA Associate for Congregational Vitality and Development. Immediately following worship, she will lead a conversation and listen to our joys and concerns. From this conversation, she will work with Grace Council, Team Grace, and other leaders in church vitality and development to share realistic possibilities for the continued mission and ministry of Grace United Church of Christ. The voice of every single person in the Grace community must be heard as we strive to be followers of Jesus through Grace UCC in 2016 and beyond. Please be in worship at 9:15 and attend the discussion following.
Please pray for our Team Grace (Diane Alge, Brandon Berry, Don Smith, Jessica Wells, Lew Wilbanks, and Bruce Williams) meeting regularly to address our challenges; please pray for God's guidance as we devotedly seek to share God's love as followers of Jesus. Prayerfully consider a new vision of what Grace Church can be as we seek to give sacrificially to be the church. Thank you for your prayers and your giving!

We are a people in need of new hope. We find ourselves facing new challenges at home, at church, in the community, and in our world. No one can suggest that there are easy answers. In the midst of such enormous struggles, we also have our individual lives to lead. If our personal lives lack confidence and hope, we can be of little use to others. Please consider being a part of the Advent Study of Grace Church, The Gift of New Hope.
