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).


BULLETIN CUES FOR KIDS
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.

At the door to the Sanctuary you will find bags filled with quiet activities for young children to use in church, if desired.

OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE

 

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!!!!

 

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.
