Grace in Action / Come and See, Come and Do

On Sunday September 13 from 9:30 - 11 a.m.the Volunteers and Nominations Committee will host the third annual Grace in Action fair in the gym. The Grace community is blessed to have an abundance of volunteer opportunities and we invite all our members to come to the Grace in Action fair to explore how best to serve our church and community. 

This year’s theme - Come and See, Come and Do – is meant to inspire members to actively take part in some aspect of service during the fair. Some things already planned:

+Come and help the Social Ministry committee make fleece blankets.

+Come and register for Sunday School and sign-up to volunteer with our Youth and Family committee. 

+Come and get your flu shots offered by the Grace Health Cabinet. 

 Make plans to attend the Grace in Action Fair - we look forward to seeing you there!
