CALL Ministries

American Heritage Girls Troop OH-0724 is collecting food and other items to help CALL Ministries to fill up their food pantry.  During the month of November they are in need of canned fruit and vegetables.  Please put your donations in the designated box in the foyer.

Volunteer Needs ASAP

Grace is in need of several more individuals, couples, or families to help with the weekly cleaning of our church.  The goal is to get 5 teams together, so you would only have to clean (1) time per month.  Those wishing to volunteer, please see Kim Eversman or Sandy Staugler.  “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38).

Hanging of the Greens

The church’s annual hanging of the greens will be Sunday, November 29.  We will need a lot of helpings hands to make the church shine with the lights of Christmas.  Come join us from 4 to 6 pm to help set up and clean up.  Remember the more people who come and help, the more fun we will have and the work will go much quicker!

Angel Tree Tags

It’s that time of year again when Grace is able to bless the families in mercer County by participating in the Angel Tree Program.  Visit the Angel Tree in the foyer and take as many tags off it as you would like and bring the item listed on the tag to the church on or before Sunday, December 6, unwrapped and with the tag attached.  A change this year that all the gifts will be toys, no clothing.  Monetary gifts can be sent to Our Home at 117 West Fayette Street, Celina, OH (make checks payable to Our Home).  Help bless the families in need.
