News You Can Use

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING RESULTS: With your vote, Kelly Price was confirmed to the office of elder, and Lanita Nissen and Bill Reams were confirmed to the office of deacon. They will be ordained/installed on January 13. A 2019 budget and mission giving goals were also approved. God is working in & through Grace Church! 

 OFFERING ENVELOPES: Please find your 2019 offering envelopes in the foyer. If you can’t find a box with your name on it, please notify Chuck Stejskal. Each and every member, young or old, is encouraged to give according to the biblical principle of one tenth of your income. Every offering no matter how small or large helps to glorify our Lord, spread the Good News of Jesus Christ, & build His church. We can never out-give God. May God bless your generosity!

 WHAT IS OUR “BENEVOLENT FUND?” Some have asked this question lately. So, let’s review what our Benevolent Fund is and how it works. The Benevolent Fund is a kind of emergency fund that exists to help members and close friends of Grace Church with emergent needs. This includes things like groceries, rent/housing, medicines, and other basic living essentials. Requests are kept confidential and considered by our outreach deacon along with the deacon chairperson under the advisement of Pastor Dave. Generally, gifts of no more that $300/individual/year may be given out. If you, or someone you know are in need, feel free to contact Becky Carr.
