Desserts needed for Community Table on Monday, April  29
Grace provides desserts for Community Table in the months when there is a fifth Monday.  We are scheduled to help on Monday, April 29.  We need 10 volunteers who will each bake and donate 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies.  Use your favorite recipe and do not include nuts.  We never know who might have a nut allergy.  If you are able to help, please contact Sylvia Kirgis at 540-460-1854 (text or phone) or skirgis@embarqmail.com.  Thank you for serving our neighbors by providing delicious cookies!

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. 


 

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!

 

CHILDREN’S RESOURCE LIBRARY
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.

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 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”

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 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.
