You are invited

 to the annual Carol Service here at Grace. The Carol Service is scheduled for Sunday, December 11, at the 8:00 worship service. The program will feature: readings about some of the symbols of Christmas; anthems sung by the adult choir; and of course, the singing of many of our favorite and cherished Christmas carols.

Merry Christmas!

The children's Christmas Sunday School Program will be a play entitled The Party, on December 18th at the 10:30 am service.  They have been practicing lines and music during Sunday School in preparation for this production.  Please come see the result of all of their hard work.  Parents: please have your children attend Sunday School that morning at 9:15 so we can review our songs and parts.

All children involved in the Christmas play

 will have an extra practice from 6:00 – 7:30 pm on Wednesday, December 14th.

We would like to thank

 all of the wonderful bakers for the delicious cookies they made for the Thanksgiving Eve service. They were all enjoyed and there was even enough left for Sunday morning!  Thanks again! – The Friendship Committee

The Angel Tree is up

 at Jackson Center United Methodist Church with the tags on it listing the individual needs for children in our community.  There are many tags to be taken and filled, so we have brought some over and they are in the back of the sanctuary for pick up.  If you pick up tags, please have those gifts to the Jackson Center UMC by Thursday, December 15th.  Please include the tag that you picked up.  JCUMC is open 8:00 am – 1:00 pm Mon. through Thurs.  If you cannot bring gifts to the JCUMC, please contact Darlene Woolley, and she will take it for you.  If you have questions about the program, contact Kira Hartley at

Happy Birthday JESUS!!!

 The celebration of Christmas is a special time of giving for believers all around the world.  To honor our Savior this Christmas and share the Good News you may purchase a Bible for $5.00 which will be sent to someone around the world.  You may fill out the specially marked envelopes found in your pew if you would like a tax deductible receipt.  Please drop envelopes or offering into the marked box at the back of church and tie a card ornament onto the Christmas tree beside the table. Thank You and Merry Christmas.

Haiti Mission Trip

The Haiti Mission Trip Members are in search of "church" clothing of any size for the people of Haiti.  Haitians will only go to a church service if they are dressed in "church" style clothing such as skirts, dresses, and collared shirts (no sport jackets).  Also in search of hard, durable, large suitcases to be donated for the mission trip. Items may be placed in either vestibule and labeled Haiti Trip.  We will be collecting through the month of February.
