The Community Closet Needs Volunteers!
The Community Closet at Christ Episcopal Church in Buena Vista has reopened and is in need of volunteers. The Closet provides clothing and household items, at no charge, to families in need.  
 
Volunteers are needed in two capacities. On days when the Closet is open, the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, volunteers help greet customers and assist them in finding items. At other times, to be arranged, volunteers are needed to help put away donations and assure that the Closet is ready for the public.  If you are able to volunteer, please contact Susie Trimble at susietrimble@rockbridge.net.  
Stewardship Campaign Progress Report
As of November 12, the 2021 Stewardship Campaign has received pledges from 116 households who have pledged a total of $466,259. Parishioners continue to support Grace and the Campaign. We are grateful for the support of members of our parish and for everything their financial support means to Grace’s spiritual life, missions, and impact on the community – nearby and across the world. We are also pleased to receive support from several new families joining Grace. The Stewardship Committee will continue its work through December. We are now less than $40,000 away from last year’s stewardship total.

Gratefully,
Your Stewardship Committee: Dennis Cross (Chair), Susan Cross, Carol Dent, Gail Dickerson, David Hansen, John Milford, Rob Minor
