YES, IT'S TIME FOR BACK-TO-SCHOOL.
Believe it or not, it's already time to think about going back to school! This year, Grace will team with Action Ministries to help provide backpacks and school supplies for children in our community. Through July 21st, we will collect school supplies from the Hope-Hills supply list. (You may leave items in the basket in the Grace Cafe.) Then, we'll get together after worship in the Cafe to assemble backpacks on Sunday, July 23rd before Action Ministries' Back-to-School event on Friday, July 28th (during the Women's Community Kitchen Luncheon, 11am, Living Room).

Want to help? Donate items from the list (http://www.atlantapublicschools.us/cms/lib/GA01000924/Cent
ricity/Domain/1504/School%20Supply%20List.pdf), and plan to help with the packing and distribution events. You may also share monetary donations, noting that they are for back-to-school supplies.
A BRAND NEW WAY TO CONNECT WITH GRACE
Grace UMC is moving to a new kind of church record-keeping solution called Realm (R).

Realm provides opportunities to connect with each other, keep up with what's going on, and grow as a community of believers. If you have an address on file, you should have received an invitation email on Monday, July 10th. Please contact the church office if you are experiencing any trouble registering your account.
OUR LATEST DELIVERY
On Wednesday, July 5th, Pastor Stacey Rushing joined Patsy Woods, Melco & Edith Langford for a trip to Grady where we delivered 53 stoma covers to the Respiratory Department and 94 hats and 32 blankets to the NICU nursery.

We invite anyone who knits or crochets to join us as we meet 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. We also appreciate your generous donations to help with the cost of supplies.
