It's the middle of October. What does that mean? Not only does it mean that Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but it also means you have ten more Wednesdays until Christmas. The holidays are upon us!

Please see below to keep-up-to date on COG activities. Reach out if you have questions or want more information.
I look forward to seeing you Sunday!

Flapjack Fellowship

The Chefs of Grace put together another great breakfast on October 13th. They provided pancakes, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, various toppings, and drinks. Taking it to a whole new level, the chefs even made some pancake art for the kiddos. They made pumpkins, spider webs, spiders, footballs, and more. There were roughly 100 people who came to enjoy food and fellowship. Thank you, Rhonda Mott for organizing this event and the all of the chefs for your hard work at all your events.

The next event for the Chefs of Grace will be on December 22nd at 9 am, providing breakfast snacks before Sunday service.
