CHURCH WORKDAY
We are having a Spring Church Work Day  Saturday, April 28th, from  9:30am until noon.
All ages are encouraged to attend

 

SUPPORT MISSIONS BY SHOPPING AT KROGER
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 www.kroger.com 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!!!!

 

DESSERTS NEEDED FOR COMMUNITY TABLE
Our church has been asked to provide desserts for Community Table on the 5th Monday of the month.  Months that have a 5th Monday occur every three months (four times each year.)  We provided desserts in October and January and are on again in April.  We need 10 volunteers to prepare a dessert for Community Table on April 30.  We will each prepare one pan of brownies, using a mix or your favorite recipe without nuts.  If you would like to help this month, please contact Sylvia Kirgis at 540-463-5443 or skirgis@embarqmail.com.

 

HABITAT HOTEL
Habitat Hotel is a fundraising event for Rockbridge Habitat for Humanity.  Habitat Hotel provides W&L parents with a place to stay for Parents Weekend (Sept. 28-29).  The parents donate money per night to Rockbridge Habitat instead of paying for a motel room. Please consider being a host. You would provide a bedroom and private (not shared) bathroom.  You do not have to provide any meals. For more information, please contact Jackie Calhoun jhcalhoun73@gmail.com or 463-2006. Thank you!

OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE

 

 

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY WELCOME BASKETS
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.
 

GRACE FOOD
“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 anduses it to help feed our hungry Rockbridge neighbors.  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 COMMUNITY TABLE
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 skirgis@embarqmail.com.  You do not have to commit to going every month. 

 

NO CADET LEFT BEHIND
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!
