 the wonderful visit and valentines gifts. It was such a pleasure to

 visit with you and the treats were so appreciated! ~Ann Hoezee



 members get together on a project we do it "up brown"! But, this

 great project was all done in "red white and blue". Because of the

 great generosity in the giving of your monetary donations, the wide

 variety of snacks/goodies and home baked goods you donated, we

 were able to send out 8 Care Packages. My heartfelt thanks to the

 volunteer packers: Louise Grimm, Gladys Kessel, Karen Roberts,

 Joan Formsma, Sandy Gort, Phyllis Vander Sloot and Joan

 Patterson; who, with TLC, filled each box to the brim. Grace Church

 has spoken as we conveyed our love, prayers and support to our

 service men and women. Multiplied thanks! ~Mary Mc Alary

 Please sign up in the narthex to be a prayer partner to one or more

 it be possible to have 5 persons praying for each person? We will

 give you more details of the trip before we leave so you can better

 pray for our needs. Also, right now we need all of your prayers....

 prayers for Al & Sue Schreuder and those we will be working with

 in Chiapas...prayers for all the plans being made in Chiapas as well

 a here, prayers for health for each of us, and prayers for good

 weather and safe travel.


DISCOVERY KIDZ still need help with this rotation! Please see

 Heather, or sign up on the clipboard in the narthex ASAP.


Toilet Paper COLLECTION for FNOW- Toilet Paper is

 Once again needed at Family Network of Wyoming! During the

 next month we will have boxes at the entrances to our church

 where you can drop off toilet paper. Currently, a family is given 1

 roll of toilet paper when they come to get food at the pantry once a

 month. We would like to double that amount! If 50 families gave

 24 rolls, we would have 1,200 rolls of toilet paper to give to the

 pantry…..can YOU help make this become a reality? Thanks!


MOMENTUM - A Leadership Conference for volunteer leaders, staff,

 and pastors is scheduled for March 3, 2012 from 9AM till 4 PM at

 Fair Haven Ministries in Hudsonville. Cost is $35 for the entire day. 

 The keynote speaker is Dr George Hunter III, and his topic is ‘Church

 Growth Reconceived for a New Generation’. Workshops in a variety

 of areas will provide practical help in your local church. For details

 and registration, go to If you really want

 to attend, but are not able to come up with the finances, see Shari.


THE SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of February is designated

 for WORDS OF HOPE. Beginning in July, Words of Hope

 Devotional Booklets that we have available here at Grace will be free

 of charge. At the present time we pay for those. “We are doing this

 because we would rather have people support our ministry with

 voluntary donations than buy something from us. We want to build

 relationships, not business transactions. So we are eliminating the

 subscription fee to bring our devotional in line with the rest of our

 Bible study literature.” Our collection for Words of Hope was

 scheduled before we received their notice, so even more reason to

 give generously! This offering will be received on Feb. 26.
