Opportunities to Connect on Sunday Morning
We are continuing to grow on Sunday mornings, and we are so glad to see so many people with us for worship, Sunday School, and fellowship time! If you'd like to help enhance these times we spend together, here are 2 great opportunities:

Children's Word Time: During the Word portion of worship, our 8-and-under members worship in the nursery, learning about God's Word at their level.
If you'd like to volunteer with CWT, please click here. For more information on CWT, click here.

Sunday Morning Hospitality/ Coffee Hour: Between services, we meet in the Fellowship Hall for some snacks and shared time. Hospitality hosts make this possible by providing refreshments, setting up, and cleaning up. We have two more Sundays that need hosts - November 27 and December 18. Please click here to sign up to host. If you have questions, please contact Pr. Rachel.

Thank you for making connections at Grace!
Biggest needs at HOPE:
Cereal, Canned Vegetables, Toilet Paper, Shampoo, Soap, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Paper Towels, Menstrual Hygiene Products, and Laundry Detergent

HOPE is experiencing a shortage of many items right now! Please take a look at the "biggest needs" and consider adding a few to your cart on your next shopping trip.

You can drop items off in the bin located outside the church offices when you're in the building, and a volunteer will take them over to HOPE. Please only place non-perishable items in the bin!
Palmetto Community Health Care is looking for volunteers! Click the video to learn more about how they serve our community and how you can take part.
Volunteers are needed to visit with guests at the Cottage from 6:40-8:00pm on Nov. 12. If you are interested in helping, please contact Stefany Tindale at 803.322.6570.

Another need is for volunteers for driving a 10 passenger van from Hope Fellowship Church to Pathways starting at 7:00-7:15 AM and finishing at approximately 8:15 AM. This entails two round trips ( approximate total 15-18 ladies ) along with stopping at the HUB for those who need to take the bus and two drop offs at job sites.

Ron Hartman shares, "This is very easy and fulfilling work for less than a handful of mornings a month. I serve as a back up driver and will be willing to answer any questions. Please contact me at 330 620 4711."
