Grace Families November 2021 Newsletter - Community of Grace
There Is No One Quite Like YOU!
As parents, you set the tone in your home. This month, as the holidays approach, take a step back and consider what you'd like your family culture to be...

Fun? Generous? Forgiving? Grace-filled? Prayerful? Outside-the-box? Embracing each member as a unique individual? Active in the community? Inclusive of neighbors & friends?

Community of Grace is here to support you as you parent with your God-given personality. Join us in November to learn from others - and to share what you know!

Grace LOVES Parents!

This month we're continuing our series called "You've Got Talent!" as we learn about spiritual gifts and God's big plans for us.

School age kids are invited to join us for 30 minutes each Sunday, between services (9:50-10:20am) in Classroom 3/4 for Discovery Club!

Be sure to check in at the lobby kiosk before dropping your child off!
Middle & High School Youth Groups

Forgiveness is a really big deal in families and friendships. Grace youth are exploring the power (and challenge) of forgiving others during this Thanksgiving month in a series called "Bittersweet."

Grace youth meet each Sunday from 11:45am-1:15pm, immediately following our weekly family meal in the Grace Family Lounge.

Grace Youth Events in November
Grace Youth are gearing up for a holiday service project! Our students will be assembling and distributing bags to homeless people in our community for Christmas. Your support of the November 14th and 27th fundraisers (details below) will help our youth purchase supplies for these blessing bags. Thank you for your generosity!
Grace Youth had a blast dressing up for church on Halloween! Click here to see our gallery of recent photos in Grace Families on Facebook.
Grace's Fall Festival & Trunk-or-Treat attracted families with personality - like this one! Thanks to all who helped Emily make this an event to remember!
