Going to Camp? Thinking about it?

ELCA Summer Camp is an awesome way to spend a week forming faith, meeting friends, and spending time in creation! We have scholarship funds available to help you go to an ELCA camp!

If you'd like to apply for a scholarship, click here for the application form, and then submit it to Pr. Rachel.

If you'd like to explore local camp opportunities, click here to visit the NovusWay website. Pr. Rachel would also be glad to talk with you to find the right program!
Please mark your calendars for Thursday April 28, 2022. We will be in the Grace Fellowship Hall for our next event. We will gather at 11:30 am and have lunch at noon. Come and enjoy a salad and sandwich bar buffet of treats and a visit from the folks who run the Hope Food Pantry with a small army of volunteers that include a number of Grace friends. 
Gordon Bell with his wife (Sally) and daughter (Rachel) will share with us the inner workings of the services that help food insecure families in Rock Hill. I think you will find their presentation informative and heartfelt. 
We will also be treated to another round of music and singing with Monty Bennett and hopefully another slice of his homemade pound cake. 

If you have any questions or want to reserve your seat for April 28, please give Annie Laurie a call (803) 517-0626 (cell) or (803) 980-1834 (home phone) or email by April 26.
See you soon! Looking forward to seeing everyone.
