November 10th-11th: Grace Church Ladies’ Day Away with Jodi Ware! Ladies, if you are interested in attending the Ladies’ Day Away please purchase your tickets right away, as they are going fast and we only have 60. We are also in need of volunteers to help with various areas of the conference, both with preparations beforehand as well as serving during the conference. If you are interested in serving in this way, see Maria, Kerstin or Liz. ***We ask that you be in prayer for Jodi as she prepares to bring us God’s Word and for each of the ladies that will be attending our event. Pray that they will be built up, challenged, and loved with the love of Jesus. To God be the glory!
~ Scheduling for the men’s weekly small-group Bible study is still in progress. Men, if you are interested in attending, please contact Carl to give him your first and second choices of day of the week and time of day.
~ Wednesday evenings at 7:30: All church prayer meeting. We set aside this time during the week to pray together as a church body. All ages are welcome to join in praising and thanking God as well as addressing specific prayer requests.
~ Yearly Bible reading plan: The elders encourage the body to read the Scriptures. A unique way we can do this together is to follow a year-long Bible reading plan. If you would like to be a part of this, there are copies of the reading plan on the welcome table in the front corner of the multi-purpose room. Contact Carl Fletcher or Mike Akin if you have questions.
~ Do you have produce, clothes, or other items you would like to share with the body? Please set out food items on a folding table by the kitchen. Non-food items can be set out on a folding table by the nursery at our monthly evening meeting. Books and media will need to be approved by the elders in advance. Please be responsible for cleaning up anything you bring.
