CHURCH OFFICE Our church secretary works Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The office is closed on Fridays which is also Pastor Wenck’s day off.

BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENTS are due by noon on Tuesdays.

NEW MEMBER PICTURE BOARD is in a case just inside the fellowship hall on east wall. Check it out to “see” who has joined Grace this year.

FELLOWSHIP REIMBURSEMENT FOR REFRESHMENTS Thanks to everyone who volunteers each Sunday morning during the Sunday school hour to make coffee and provide various snacks. This is a wonderful fellowship ministry! Please be aware that the cost of your expenses up to $20 can be reimbursed if you choose.  In order to get reimbursed, complete a Reimbursement Request (box on the left side of the freezer) and attach your receipts. Once the form is completed, return it and the receipts in to the office. The treasurer will write you a check within a few days.

NOURISH FOOD BANK We are so thankful for those of you at Grace who are giving to this worthwhile organization to assist those need help. They currently need the following items for holiday meals: instant potatoes/potatoes au gratin, canned green beans/corn, cream of mushroom soup, canned yams/sweet potatoes, gravy mix, pie filling, canned pineapple, baking items (flour, sugar, oil etc.), Jell-o, broth, fried onions, cranberry sauce, canned meats (tuna, spam, chicken and ham). During the holidays, NOURISH provides their clients with Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas hams plus all the sides to provide a robust dinner and dessert. You can bring items to the church and we will take them over to the food bank for you.  They will also take the sample size toiletries you get when you stay at a hotel. Thank you for your consideration and donations! NOTE: Please DO NOT donate items that have been opened or have expired as we will not accept them.

FELLOWSHP TIME We have a new sign-up sheet for Sunday morning fellowship time.  If you are willing to make coffee, provide refreshments, and clean up afterwards, please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the kitchen door. Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve.

DON’T FORGET to “check in” on FaceBook on Sunday mornings to help get people talking.  But please remember to silence your phones during worship to limit the distractions.  Thank you!  The Evangelism Team
