STOP HUNGER NOW!—It’s back…the great big “Make Change” Jar! At this moment, 75% of the world struggles to obtain enough basic nutrition. Our goal is to package 10,000 meals for “Stop Hunger Now”, each costing 29 cents. Our food packaging event is scheduled for Sunday, September 27th, and so far we’ve raised about $900. This leaves about $2000 to raise, and we need your help! Please place donations of any size in our jug each Sunday. If writing a check is easier, please make it out to Grace Church but indicate on the Memo line (lower left of your check) that it is for “Stop Hunger meals.”

WOMEN’S MINISTRY NEEDS YOU!—Please recycle your glass jars with lids for our Women’s Holiday Craft Night on October 16th. Jars of all sizes are needed and will then be transformed into a gift you may give during the holiday season. Contact the church office at 916-714-3444 for where to take the jars. We appreciate your help!

THE PRAYER CONNECTION—A reminder that we have a weekly email of prayer requests, answers to prayer and a short devotion. If you would like to receive the weekly Prayer Connection and be a part of praying for those requests from our church family, please provide your email address on the yellow communication card available on Sundays. There is also a place on the card for you to submit a prayer request for the Prayer Connection.
