 SUMMER MISSION PROGRAM: We celebrate the fact that our very own Hailey Holven has been accepted into the Reformed Church’s summer mission program for young adults. She will be serving at a deaf school in Jamaica for nine weeks beginning in May. Hailey shared about this mission venture last Sunday but feel free to contact her if you want to learn more. If you’d like to help Hailey with her fundraising needs, feel free to donate directly to her. We congratulate Hailey and she thanks you for your generous support!

 CELEBRATING 20 YEARS WITH GRACE CHURCH: A celebration will be held on Sunday, April 15 to recognize and honor 20 years of faithful service by Pastor Dave in being the pastor of Grace Church. The celebration will mainly be a recognition held between the two services with cake and goodies served between services by consistory in honor of Pastor Dave. But all members and friends are invited to enter the sanctuary at the conclusion of the traditional service (during the singing of the final hymn) on that morning for a brief presentation in the sanctuary before going down to the Fellowship Hall for refreshments and fellowship together. Congratulations on 20 years of faithful service, Pastor Dave!
