MEAL MAKERS OCTOBER
Join Grace's Meal Makers Ministry every second Sunday as we spend time preparing meals for Action Ministries' Women's Community Kitchen. We invite people of all ages and abilities to meet in the Kitchen/Fellowship Hall after worship this Sunday, October 8th, to cook and enjoy fellowship.

Donations are also needed, so visit http://bit.ly/MealMakersOct to learn what you can bring. Want to learn even more or get involved? Contact Shelly Hart via the church office (office at graceonponce.org).
PRIDE PARADE SUNDAY
Join Grace Church again this year as we proudly march in the 2017 Pride Parade!

Family and friends are welcome. Participating in this event is a wonderful opportunity to show our love for community and to show that Grace UMC is here for everyone!

We'll meet immediately following worship in the upper parking lot, and head to the parade start. We will provide lunch and coordinate transportation. And new Grace T-shirts are here! See the section below for details regarding how to get yours this Sunday. Other questions: contact Robby Hollida or Jess Ray via the Grace office (office at graceonponce.org).

NOTE - Changes for the day: Worship: 10am. Adult Sunday School: 11am, in the Sanctuary. The parade begins at 11am.

NEW GRACE T-SHIRTS ARE HERE!
Just in time for the Pride Parade, new Grace UMC T-shirts are available to the Grace community.

You may get your shirt in the Grace Cafe on Sunday mornings prior to worship for a suggested donation of $10 per shirt.
THE DIVINE DANCE
Now through November via a video study, Grace's Living Room Class is engaging the question, "What if changing our perception of God has the potential to change everything?" This series focuses on the Trinity and transformation, based on Richard Rohr's recent book, Divine Dane: the Trinity & Your Transformation . While many may find God irrelevant or simply unbelievable in today's culture, "Rohr presents a compelling alternative to aloof and fairy tale versions of God."

We meet in the Living Room at 10am each Sunday. Everyone is welcome and you do not have to attend every week - come when you can! For more information, contact Michelle Levan via the church office (office at graceonponce.org).
