CHILDREN’S CHURCH begins Sunday, November 4 during the contemporary service with 3-years-olds through those in 2nd grade invited to attend! Children will be dismissed during the song prior to the message and enjoy age-appropriate teaching and crafts in the classroom. An introductory letter and schedule for those who signed-up to serve can be found in your mail slot, if you haven’t already. Please contact Kelly Price if you have questions. May God bless us with more and more precious “little ones!”

CHILDREN & YOUTH MINISTRIES: Our “Fish Net” children’s ministry is off and running for another season as is “The R.O.C.K.” youth group. Children 3 years through those in 5th grade are urged to attend Fish Net, while 6th-12th graders are invited to The R.O.C.K. youth group. Supper for both groups begins promptly at 5:15 PM followed by each group’s unique program including singing, biblical lesson, games, and craft for Fish Net kids, and interactive learning and faith-building activities for the youth. The evening concludes at 7:00 PM. Parents are encouraged to have your children/youth participate. Newcomers and friends are always welcome!

CHRISTMAS DRAMA PRACTICE: This year’s Christmas production will be an encore presentation of “Cosmic Christmas.” Many volunteers are needed to make this outreach a success. Practices run Sunday afternoons at 1:00 PM. The drama is tentatively set for December 14 & 15, possibly including a 2:00 PM Saturday matinee. Many speaking and non-speaking parts are still available. Sign-up at the Information Station today or talk to Barb Holven to help!

SUPPORTING THE MISSION:  As we approach the final months of the calendar year, we are significantly behind in our giving to the General Fund.  Your financial support is needed to keep the ministry of Grace Church alive and impacting.  Consistory invites members and friends of the church to consider your weekly or monthly giving.  From Jesus Give-Aways, Sunday in the Parks, our prayer shawl ministry, dramas & dinners, Fish Net, The ROCK, small groups for adults, weekly worship services, an increase in visitors, and a dedicated pastor – Grace Church is making a difference for Jesus!  Please evaluate your financial support of the mission of Grace Church.  Would you consider making up for any weeks you may have missed, bringing your giving up-to-date, and/or increasing your weekly offerings? May God bless your generosity!
