Thank you for your gifts to Grace

OnlineGivingButton.gifThank you for your gifts to Grace during the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ended last Sunday. Your gifts support our mission and the ministries that bring in, build up, and send out disciples for Jesus Christ.

In the months ahead, please continue to pray for Grace Church and School. The budget approved by the congregation at the June meeting includes a 7 to 9 percent increase in offerings for 2013-14. You might consider becoming a more faithful giver by setting up automated donations through Grace’s online giving site or through your bank’s electronic bill-paying service.
