OnlineGivingButton.gif"Meet the Need" as we support our ministry together at Grace

As we near the end of the fiscal year on June 30, the people of Grace are responding generously and faithfully with contributions to “meet the need” to end the fiscal year without a deficit. We are each called to do our part. First, please fulfill your Faith Promise pledge for 2015-16 by the end of June. Then, please consider a gift that goes beyond your normal weekly or monthly offering. God’s work at Grace continues in amazing ways. Prayerfully consider how God has impacted your life and respond with a gift that expresses your thankfulness. Thank you!

Listening sessions

If you are interested, please come to the lower level in between services on one of these Sundays, and a member of the Ad Hoc Committee will instruct you where to go for a confidential listening session with two members of the committee. More information can be found here. You may email the committee at adhoc@graceriverforest.org.
