Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

Our annual packing party for OCC will be held at Grace on Oct. 31st at 6:45 pm.  Bring some finger foods to share and beverages will be provided.  Bring a friend with you to share in the fun of packing a shoebox gift for a boy or girl in another country.  These gifts become an opportunity to share the love of the Jesus with a child who has never heard the gospel. 

Pastor Appreciation
The month of October is Pastor Appreciation.  Let’s show our Grace support and appreciation this month by blessing Pastor Brett and family through prayer, cards, etc.  First, and most importantly, lift up Pastor Brett in prayer daily, asking God to guide him, bless him and give him His direction for the church.  Also, pray for Pastor Brett and family.  Second, cards, letters of appreciation, gift cards, etc. can be placed in the card box in the foyer.  There will be a carry-in meal appreciation Sunday, October 21st, after the morning service.  Meat and drinks will be provided.  Please bring a covered dish to share.  Thanks.
