Announcements for
February 24- March 2

Next Sunday we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper as a part of our Worship.  Please take some time this week to prepare your hearts.

On February 24th, all the adult teaching fellowships will meet together for a time of sharing and prayer. Our sharing is based on what God has been teaching us through our classes together and our prayer is for the upcoming semester.

On March 3rd, all the adult teaching fellowships will meet together for a ministry report from Matt Chase. Matt grew up in this church when his family lived in Lexington and we are one of his supporting churches for his mission work in Chiba Japan. Since we've had several overviews of ministry in Japan, Matt and Carley, his wife, will be talking about some of the specifics of their work with college students and their church planting efforts.


Please begin to pray for Paul and preaching seminar he will be leading in Georgetown Guyana March 11-16 with Langham Preaching Partnership. This is a ten year celebration in honor of the past and in celebration that the ministry is now fully run by Guyanese.


You are invited to join the faith communities who took part in Faith Build 2018 and meet the new family moving into the home you built. Brunch will be served. Saturday, March9, 2019 at 11:00 am, right here at Grace.  Please RSVP to Lynn Harris at or 540-463-3370.

Children at Grace
“Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds…Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up…”(Deuteronomy 11).


In this week's bulletin, you will see picture cues to help parents guide their little ones through a better understanding of how to participate in worship. 


Kid Kit Bags
At the door to the Sanctuary you will find bags filled with quiet activities for young children to use in church, if desired. If you take one to use during Worship, please take your child’s artwork home with you to enjoy and leave the bag in your seat for us to restock for the next child to use. Thanks and enjoy!


Our library contains Bible story books and devotionals that we highly recommend and are for a variety of ages.  We would love for your family to utilize this library as a preview of the books, and encourage you to purchase those that meet your needs.  Please feel free to check them out for a couple of weeks, then return for other families to explore.  This beautiful resource and check out system is located on the white bookshelf in Laura Pearson’s office.

Please consider being part of our Grace ministry to VMI cadets by offering them rides back to VMI after worship each week. Our church van brings them to church, but does not take them back to Post. The Rats will be going home with their host families, but all other VMI cadets will need rides. They will be awaiting your offers in the Commons after worship. Thank you!

Did you know that you can support our missions just by grocery shopping?  Kroger has a Community Rewards Program that gives a percentage of its earnings to non-profit groups.  We currently have 25 people (families) enrolled but would love to see our support increase by enrolling new members.  Enrolling is simple!  Just go to to create an account.  Once you have an account go to Community Rewards and choose Grace Presbyterian Church - Organization number 93851.  We receive quarterly checks which go to our missions budget.  Last quarter we earned $200 plus!  If you have any questions about enrolling please see Jackie Coburn or Julie Carter.  Thank you!!!!

We often participate in the dedication of new Habitat homes in Village Way by presenting the new home owners with a “Welcome Basket”.  You can participate in this blessing to our neighbors by providing items to fill the baskets.  Some suggested items would be: candles, hand cream, coffee cups, picture hanger kits, boxes of tea bags, etc.  Please contact Joyce Duckworth (540-463-6561) if you have any questions about this ministry.

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will act.”  (Psalm 37:5) 
God takes and blesses every GRACE FOOD item you bring and uses it to help feed our hungry Rockbridge neighbors. RARA is focusing on adding FLAVOR to the Food Pantry. For the last two years, shoppers had choices of meat and fresh produce every time they were open.  Each month of 2019 has an “Item of the Month”

February: Cake, cookie, or muffin mix
March: Rice or pasta
April: Personal hygiene items
May: Cereal or oatmeal
June: Macaroni and cheese
July: Peanut butter
August: Back-to-school supplies
September: Cooking oil
October: Canned pumpkin
November: Cranberry sauce or yams
December: Instant potatoes or stuffing

In addition, all year long, they will be looking for donations of lightly-used kitchen supplies, spices, marinades, and condiments.  Please take home today a GRACE FOOD bag and return it next week, or as often as possible, with ANY non-perishable food item.


The mission of The Community Table is to relieve hunger of those residing in Lexington, Buena Vista, and Rockbridge County.  It is a restaurant without a cash register.  Dinner is served on Monday evenings at the Rockbridge Area Relief Association building next to the hospital.   Currently, our church is scheduled to provide up to 10 volunteers on the fourth Monday of every month. Volunteers wait tables and provide cleanup (2 different crews).  If you are interested in being a part of this effort or would like more information, contact Sylvia Kirgis at 463-5443 or  You do not have to commit to going every month.
