What’s Happening at Grace?
October 19, 2014
MEN’S MINI-ADVANCE LOCATION & TIME CHANGES–We will meet on Saturday, October 25th and will gather at Glen Henderson’s home, for a full day of fellowship, worship and teaching…and food, of course. We will be watching and discussing a series by Andy Stanley called “Why in the World?” Breakfast will be served at 7:00am with a $15 charge for a catered lunch, and our day will end at 4:00pm. The last Sunday to sign up at the information table is this Sunday, or email the church office, firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT OUTREACH ANNOUNCEMENT—It’s starting to feel like Fall and it’s time for our Fall Outreach! This year we would like all of you to participate in handing out a special invitation to the families that come to your door on Halloween night. The Youth group has completely prepared 370 bags for you which you may pick up at the table outside the doors this Sunday. Each family may get a stack of 20 to start with. If you need more, we will provide you with tracts & invitations the following week. You just need to purchase either microwaveable popcorn or Tootsie Pops and cute little seasonal gift bags. Please do not pop the popcorn. You will be putting either the popcorn package or Tootsie Pops into the bags with the Invitation. By handing them out to the “Trick or Treaters,” Grace Church’s name and information will go into the homes of thousands of neighbors/families in Elk Grove, Sacramento, Wilton & Galt. Let’s turn a night of darkness into an opportunity to lead these families to the Light of Jesus Christ.
LOCAL VOTER GUIDES—These guides will be at the Info table this Sunday, and for judge information, you may go to www.judgevoterguide.com.
COMMUNICATION CARDS—If you are a visitor, please fill out your communication card and take it to our “Visitor Table” by the front entrance doors to receive a free gift.
CALLING T.H.I.S. YOUTH (6th-12th) 5-6:30PM—Come D.I.G. into the Bible this Sunday afternoon from 5:00-5:45pm. Discover what the Word says, Investigate its meaning and then Go live it out the following week. You will be challenged and changed! Then from 5:45-6:30pm, join us for fun, food and fellowship as we share pizza ($3 donation), hang out and play games. See you this Sunday at the church office, 9701 Dino Drive, Suite 100, EG.
