LENT FOOD DRIVE – The need for food and personal hygiene as well as
cleaning supplies is HUGE in our area due to the cut backs in income
and loss of jobs in the area. Even though many of us are affected in
some way, God calls us to reach out as we are able. So, the Mission
Outreach Team is promoting the Lent Food Drive here at Grace from
March 1 – April 12. Please prayerfully consider helping with this
COLLECTION OF BOOKS – We have received a request from the Deacon
Center that Forgotten Man Ministries is in need of paperback
religious books focusing primarily on Christian living, marriage,
parenting, and self help. The jail library is normally stocked with
these books and they are distributed weekly throughout the facility by
Chaplains. If you have books that you have already read and would
like to donate to inmates in the Kent County Jail, please deposit them
in the box in the narthex. (This is a great way to clean out your
bookshelves and closets!)
MISSION WORK PROJECT – For the week of April 19, Grace will be
sending a group of volunteers to the New Orleans Blitz Build! In
short, this is a 9 denominational effort to totally rehabilitate and
finish 12 homes that are still standing idle following Hurricane
Katrina and Rita in 2005. Funds are being supplied by each of these
9 denominations…in our case by the RCWS. We have already begun
projects to raise funds for this trip and others are in the making. This
is open to any adult in the congregation (limit of 15) so if you are
interested, please sign the sheet in the narthex to reserve your spot.
See the letter inserted in your bulletin today for more details!
