Grace_Stewardship_HEART.jpegOnlineGivingButton.gifJune giving

The 2016–17 fiscal year ends on Friday, June 30. As we work together to finish the year with a balanced budget, please consider making an additional financial gift during the month of June, above and beyond your pledge, above your previous year's giving. A Grace member has generously offered to match all these additional year-end gifts up to $20,000. Each gift, no matter the size, helps our ministry flourish. Prayerfully seek the Spirit’s wisdom, and give generously in the weeks ahead!

Thank you for your continued support of God’s work at Grace.

Slovakia mission team will be commissioned in worship this Sunday

A team of Grace teens and adults will be traveling to Slovakia in July to lead a week of Vacation Bible School for 200 children at the Center for Christian Education in Martin. They'll be commissioned during our worship services this Sunday.

Support additional accessible parking

The Board of Elders, led by Al Swanson, is asking the village of River Forest to create additional handicapped parking along Bonnie Brae on Sunday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon. The handicapped parking restriction would apply to the west side of Bonnie Brae, between the church doors and the doors to the atrium. Al will be in the atrium between services this Sunday with a petition for Grace members to sign in support of this request. You do not have to be a River Forest resident to sign the petition.

Moving recurring donations from The City to Online Giving

On June 30, Grace will be discontinuing its subscription to The City. At that time the CityPay giving feature will be deactivated, and automatic donations scheduled through The City for 
July 1, 2017, and beyond will not be processed. To continue making automatic donations to Grace from your savings or checking account or via debit/credit card, you will need to set up a gift at our Online Giving page. In addition, you may wish to delete your financial account information at The City. If you need assistance, please contact Jim McClanahan in Grace's business office (; 708-771-1440).
