IN APPRECIATION – Thank you to the GEMS and their leaders for
the wonderful visit and valentines gifts. It was such a pleasure to
visit with you and the treats were so appreciated! ~Ann Hoezee
MILITARY CARE PACKAGES SENT! When Grace Church
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 BE IN PRAYER FOR Ray & Robin Zondervan who will be
traveling to China to get their new son, Nate! They will leave on

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 www.churchmomentum.org 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.
