Here’s What’s Happening at Grace!
September 16, 2018
- OFFICE CLOSED/NO ANNOUNCEMENTS EMAIL NEXT WEEK—The office will be closed next week, September 18-20, Tuesday-Thursday, our regular office days. And, because of this closing, the announcements will not be emailed out. The staff and elders are heading to Hume Lake for the Pastor’s Conference.
- BAKED GOODS FOR CRAFT BOUTIQUE—Donations of baked goods are needed for the craft boutique on Saturday, September 29th. Stop by the information table to sign up.
- MEN’S GOLF TOURNAMENT—All men, this tournament will take place on Saturday, September 22nd at Noon at Cordova Golf Course. The cost is $35 and you may place a check in the offering made payable to Grace Church with “Golf Tournament” on the memo line. We encourage you to invite non Grace guests to participate as well! We have 24 spots available.
- PRIMETIMERS (50+)—Ok Greasers & Chicks, it’s time to get out your 60’s threads (optional) and come to our outta’ sight 60’s bash at 4:30pm, Saturday, October 6th at someone’s pad. We’ll be downin’ some groovy hot dogs, hamburgers, beans, salad, and cookies & root beer floats for dessert! You won’t want to miss some far out entertainment and a fab appearance by the Beetles! The bread for this event is $10 per person & signups are at the Information table. We’ll be bummed out if you can’t make it! We’re gonna’ have a BLAST!
- DICKENS FAIRE LEADERSHIP—The Evangelism & Missions Team (EMT) needs 2 people to partner together or a couple to team up with us and provide leadership for our booth on Saturday, 24 November 2018. Please pray about serving in this important community ministry. The leaders would determine a craft, gospel message format, any gift/handout and contact volunteers to work the booth. We believe this has been an effective way for Grace Church to put Christ into the Christmas season in Elk Grove for many years. However, the leadership team has moved out of the area and we are seeking those who would use their gifts to continue this ministry. To make our reservation and preparations, please prayerfully consider this need before 23 September.
- SMALL GROUPS FALL KICK-OFF—The Grace Small Groups are starting up again this month, and it is a great time to get connected with a group if you are not already a part of one. To find out when the groups meet and what they are going to study, please pick up a flyer at the Information Table.
- RECYCLING OUTREACH FOR COSTA RICA MISSION TRIP—Grace Family, the mission team is reaching out to you for your support in our short-term mission to Costa Rica. Please collect your CRV recycling. When you have a large bag accumulated, they can be collected from you on Sundays. We can accept plastics with the CRV label & aluminum with the CRV code. We will also have a collection container in the back of the sanctuary near the coffee center to collect your contributions. As always, thank you for helping to share Jesus throughout the world!
- 2019 FINANCIAL PEACE CLASS—The upcoming 9-week course of “Financial Peace University” is full to capacity. We know that there are more of you who would like to take the course, so a second class is being scheduled for the beginning of next year. If you are interested in joining this later class, please call the office, 916-714-3444.
