"We are richly blessed. It makes us look forward to the special Advent Thankoffering when we freely and joyfully, without pressure or guilt, respond to what God has literally poured out on us." From a Giving Story by Grace members Julie and Scott Krueger.
In the last few weeks, 92 Grace members have made Thankoffering gifts. Will you join them and help to raise that total above 100? Grace members have made Thankofferings in recognition of blessings that included good health, the birth of grandchildren, and the support of friends. Last year Thankofferings blessed Grace with over $50,000 to support our mission and ministry.
