KIDS @ GRACE
FREE food and fun for the children (Pre-K through 5th Grade) - ALL are welcome!

We're excited to greet and share with your children with our brand new ministry just for them every Sunday, 12:30pm, beginning in the Fellowship Hall. 
FALL BACK: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS THIS WEEKEND
We get one more hour of sleep on Saturday night - yea!  ��

Be sure to turn back all clocks that need to be manually adjusted as we return to Eastern Standard Time.
ALL SAINTS SUNDAY
We invite you to remember your loved ones who have passed away over the last year in worship this Sunday, November 4th.
 
By the end of today, October 31st, please send your loved one's name, and a high-resolution image for projecting during worship, if you'd like. Images must be at least 300 dpi, and you may email all information to office at graceonponce.org.
THANKSGIVING FEAST + PIE BAKE-OFF
It's high time for pie time!

Bring your best pie to enter into the competition and see who wins bragging rights.

We will also serve a light lunch - and of course, plenty of pie to taste, next Sunday, November 11th, following worship, in the Fellowship Hall.
BROADWAY BRUNCH PREMIERE: THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Grab your tickets today before they are available to the public for Grace's very first Broadway Brunch!

On Sunday, November 18th, we are premiering this exciting, insightful, fun, and delicious way of worshipping with scenes from Tennessee Williams' classic, The Glass Menagerie, directed by Julie Skrzypek . (Stay tuned for the announcement of our cast and caterer.)
 
Tickets are available via EventBrite for a suggested donation of only $5.00. Buy your tickets and learn more here. (bit.ly/BroadwayBrunchNovember2018) 

If the suggested donation presents a financial burden, please contact either pastor candi (cdugas at graceonponce.org) or Pastor Stacey (pastor at graceonponce.org). We always do everything that we can for there to be enough space at the tables we set at Grace Church.

Broadway Brunch (BB) is Grace's version of dinner theatre, a creative worship approach that integrates liturgical and theatrical arts. It builds on our rich, Christian tradition of combining theme-rich storytelling with a tasty meal as we connect with ourselves, God, and each other.

We'll feature some of Atlanta's most talented artists - directors, actors, and playwrights as well, along with some of Broadway's classic dramas, comedies, and musicals. We look forward to enjoying good stories with good messages with you every 3rd Sunday at Grace.
GREENING OF GRACE SERVICE
It's time again to deck the halls at Grace!

And yes, we're doing it on Sunday morning, November 25th, beginning during our traditional worship time (11am), remembering that our work is another way to worship God.

We'll have doughnuts and coffee to go along with our caroling before we start hanging ornaments and wreaths. Greening of Grace is always a really great, fun time to (re)connect with each other and new members of our community!

RSVP to pastor candi so we'll know how many doughnuts to get - via email (cdugas at graceonponce.org) or phone (404.876.2679). "Deck the halls with boughs of holly ..." See you there!
