Parking Lot - There have been some minor delays in paving our parking. Preliminary work took place this past week and final paving should take place on Tuesday and Wednesday of this coming week. An email will go out announcing parking arrangements when this takes place.
*As of Friday, July 24, the west side of our parking lot is closed to parking. Please enter the east end of the parking lot off of Tallmadge Road. Orange cones will block off any unavailable areas. Thank you for bearing with us on the parking issues today. If all goes well, next week we will be driving on a beautifully paved parking lot!
Virtual VBS - https://gcor.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/457766
Remember to save your toilet paper rolls and if you need some, see the table at the church. This will be a fun week of doing VBS differently. We will have activities with The Wrights, Krafting with Kaufman (and Mrs. Jackson), verse memorization through Zoom, and lesson time. Please contact Kim Jackson if you have any questions.
Provisions From Grace - This ministry will be helping families who need school supplies in the Fall. We have gathered spiral notebooks, paper, and pencils so far. For the month of July we are asking for Pocket Folders and 2 inch Notebooks. These can be placed in the large basket located in the hallway across from the restrooms. A list of all supplies requested is posted by the basket so you can take advantage of school sales at the stores. Thank you so much for your generosity in helping gather school supplies for children!
Summer Prayer Meetings - Grace Church will be joining together for Summer Prayer Meetings at 6:30 pm. Our next gathering will be this Wednesday, July 29. We will meet in the Fellowship Hall to make sure we comply with all social distancing guidelines.
Graduation Party - The party for Susan Xiong has been cancelled for today because of restrictions regarding Covid-19. The Pritt family hopes to be able to reschedule this celebration for Susan at a later date.
