GLOBAL MIGRATION CRISIS: UMC RESOURCES
Global Ministries/UMCOR released a statement recently which contains a number of links to resources within the UMC and beyond. Visit here for the statement.

Global Ministries/UMCOR also published possible actions that we can take. One action is to go to Amazon to send needed items anonymously to one of their partners. View the actions here. (http://bit.ly/GBGMActionItems)
RED, WHITE & BLUE JEANS SUNDAY
Enjoy a fun, casual service on the 4th of July holiday weekend - this Sunday!

We will acknowledge and lift up in prayer the women and men who serve our neighborhood in the Atlanta Fire Department and Police Department.

Be sure to wear your blue jeans!

And if you would like to help distribute our gift baskets to our neighborhood fire and police departments following Sunday's worship service, please contact Cricket Beach via the church office (office at graceonponce.org).
JULY MEAL MAKERS
Join Grace's Meal Makers Ministry this Sunday, July 1st after worship, as we prepare meals for Action Ministries' Women's Community Kitchen.

For more information and to sign up, visit here

We invite everyone - all ages and abilities - to meet in the Kitchen/Fellowship Hall to cook and enjoy fellowship!
DISCOVER NEW THINGS DURING JULY'S WORSHIP!
Over the next few weeks, we will explore some of the lesser-known faces (characters) in the Bible. 

Come, discover, and experience the bold and untold stories of those who spoke and worked for God in their own time and place.

This week's characters are Shiphrah and Puah. If you want to get a head start, check out Exodus 1:8-20 for their story. See you there!
DAY CAMPS: GROW SPIRITUALLY, SOCIALLY, INDIVIDUALLY
You can find a day camp for just about anything. What about one focused on forming faith and friendships?

Grow Day Camps puts 90+ years of experience into creating an environment where every moment - whether in morning chapel or 20 feet up a tree - is about practicing faith in Christian community.

Grow is setting up camp at Grace UMC next week, July 2-6! Learn more and register your rising 1st-6th grader at growdaycamps.org.
