August Mission

Have you noticed all the Back to School commercials on TV and ads in the newspaper? Soon our students, teachers and support staff will be going to school again. It may be online or in person, masked or unmasked.
Either way they all need our prayers and support this year more than ever.
One way to support the 5 teachers who are members of our Grace family is by donating to our "Back to School Bonanza" mission project this month. Money received for this mission will be used to provide those teachers with gift cards to purchase materials for their classrooms. Our Fab 5 Grace teachers!

Money will be collected through August 22nd. Put your check (marked Back to School) in the offering plate, send it to the church, or place it in the "yellow crayon" in the narthex. Thank you  so much!

Hey! I could do that!

While we prayerfully and expectantly wait for God to bless us with a new youth director we have decided to put together an interim group of people who have a heart for our youth. If you have ever volunteered with youth group or confirmation and would love to do it again please contact us. Or if you have never volunteered and have been praying for an opportunity and think this would be a good fit please contact us. Thanks

Recent Update
Due to a recent uptick in Covid cases in our county, and the ongoing threat of the new variants--we are requesting that everyone wear a mask when at Grace for any reason. The hope is that this return to masking is short-term only, and we will let you know when things change. The goal is always to create a safe space for worship for everyone.
