...To know Christ and to make Him known
Ezekiel 34:11-16 & 20-24
Where all are queens and kings

The Church designates the final Sunday of the Church year as the Feast of Christ the King, a day in which the united rule of Christ over all of the universe is celebrated. In many communities, it is a high feast, with altar guilds preparing white vestments, flower guilds celebrating God’s glory in elaborate displays, and hymns filled with alleluias. What a way to end the year, to celebrate stewardship, and to prepare for Advent! 
But before we get too carried away with the grandeur of it all, today’s Gospel tells a different story about kingship and leadership: It tells of service. Typical of Jesus, he begins with what we expect — in this case power and triumph – and turns it upside down and in doing so, reminds us that it is through our ministry that we increase the role of the Church in our community. True power doesn’t come through force or wealth or conquest, it is derived from generosity, charity, and love. We change the hearts and minds of our neighbors by loving them and serving them.
Throughout this annual giving season we have heard about the mission of our own church and what Grace has meant to them. You have learned about the ways that your gifts impact the life of your church and your neighbors. We have met the challenges of a global pandemic by adapting our worship. We have responded to the needs of your community by our drive thru Halloween to serve your neighbors. What is certain is that you now have the opportunity to express your love and your hope for the world through your annual gift to Grace Church.
We seek and serve Christ in all people by serving our neighbors. This is the great commandment of Jesus to his followers and it is one of the promises we make at our Baptism. When we are asked by those we meet on the street or those to whom we minister in our communities if we will offer them drink when they thirst, or visit them when they are lonely, or give them food when they hunger, our answer will be yes! Through our generosity and our faith, we are called to that same royal line as Jesus, leaders in our communities. Now that is a feast worth celebrating!

Give Lavishly, Live Abundantly !

The more we give, the more we get.
The more we laugh, the less we fret.
The more you do unselfishly,
The more you'll live abundantly.
The more of everything you share,
The more you'll always have to spare.
   The more you love,
   The more you'll find,
   That life is good,
   And friends are kind.
For only what we give away,
Enriches us from day to day.

To ensure all gifts are processed and distributed correctly, please adhere to the following guidelines 
 
Gift Giving
What to Give and How Much to Spend
  • All gifts and clothing MUST be brand NEW and UNWRAPPED!
  •  Attach a gift tag with the recipient's name and id# 
  • Wish lists are just that—wish lists. They are merely guidelines. If items on the list are too difficult to provide, do what you can within your ability and means.
Gift Cards
  • If your adoptee’s wish list includes gift cards but doesn’t specify a specific store, retailers that provide a wide variety of products (such as Walmart or Target) are a good choice.
Gift Receipts
  • Some adopters worry about getting adoptees the right size, color, or gift item. If that is a concern for you, feel free to tape a gift receipt (not a payment receipt) to the gift. The adoptee can then return it to the store and get the correct size, color, etc. or store credit (NO cash is given in return.). Your payment information should not be included on a gift receipt.
