Advent Thankoffering

The people of Grace Church live generously. Take a look at the display case in the atrium to see a grand list of the many ways and places in which Grace members serve the community beyond our doors. We serve gladly, thankfully, because God has given us so much.

What are you thankful for during this Advent season? How has God been generous with you? And how will you share God's goodness with others? Karin Danganan's Mission Moment last Sunday invited Grace members to make a special Thankoffering during this season of Advent, as “an offering of thanks for what God has first given us, as we await the coming of his Son --- the greatest gift of all.”

You may use the special Thankoffering envelope that you received in the mail. If you write a check, please add the word “Thankoffering” on the memo line. To give online, type the word “Thankoffering” in the “Other” option on the web form.
