HEAVEN & EARTH - A CONCERT
Grace UMC is excited to host the Kinnara Ensemble for their concert - "Heaven & Earth" - on Saturday, September 22nd at 7pm in the sanctuary. This professional vocal ensemble (of which Grace's minister of music and worship arts, Michael Dauterman, is a member) is based in Princeton, NJ. However, they have been giving concerts in Metro Atlanta and surrounding areas for the last year.

The perfect setting for this beautiful music, Grace is the first church to host the Kinnara Ensemble in Midtown Atlanta! Come listen to the ensemble explore the ideas of heaven, earth, and the space between the two. Tickets are only $10, available at the door or by visiting herebit.ly/kinnaragrace.
 
Also, we are looking for a few generous donors to sponsor Kinnara's appearance at Grace. To support this performance, please put "Music Fund" on your check's memo line or in the description box if donating online ( bit.ly/DonateToGrace). Any amount of your generosity is greatly appreciated!
FREE COMMUNITY FALL FESTIVAL
Grace UMC, along with GBGM and Action Ministries, is hosting a fall festival on Saturday, September 29th, 11am-3pm.

We will have lots of activities for adults and children alike. Also, we are asking for members of the Grace community to volunteer for the festival and to help spread the word to our neighbors as we all make the day a huge success.

To volunteer and for more information, contact Cricket Beach via the church office (office at graceonponce.org).

Tell/bring some friends, and we look forward to seeing you on Sept. 29th!
NEEDLES & PRAYERS' TRIP TO GRADY HOSPITAL
On July 25th - Patsy Woods along with Melco and Edith Langford made a trip to Grady Hospital's NICU with 22 blankets and 211 hats for the babies, and with 25 stoma covers for the Respiratory Department. Both departments were very appreciative!

We can always use a few more knitters and crocheters. And we always welcome your financial donations to help replenish our yarn supply. To join us, please contact one of us, and to make a donation, designate it for "Needles & Prayers." Thank you for your support!
