Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need.

Student Mentors Needed

Sign up today to become a mentor to a student of Grace.  Being a mentor means praying for the child and their families, send encouraging cards or give a small gift, get to know your mentee and their families, and be a great Christian role model.  This is a positive program as I have heard the children talk excitedly about their mentors and I have, also, heard the mentors talk fondly of the children.  Contact Julie Klopfenstein at or 726-6402 if you would be willing to serve in this capacity.

New & Transferring Member Class

If you are interested in becoming a member of Grace, instruction will begin the week of October 17.  The class will include both new and transferring members.  Please call the office or contact Pastor Hollis for additional information and sign up.

JC Fire Department

will be hosting a pork dinner October 2, 11 am to 2 pm at the fire station.  Carry out or dine in.

Operation Christmas Child

Filled shoeboxes are being accepted between now and November 13.  These will be sent to poor children, both in America and internationally.  Any size shoebox can be filled with items such as school supplies, hygiene items, small toys, candy (no chocolate), and gum.  Please do not pack violent gifts such as toy guns or knives.  Mark your box for a boy or girl, wrap it if you choose (wrap the lid separately so boxes can be checked at the processing center), and place in either vestibule.  Contact Shirley DeWeese with questions (937) 441-8413.
