Wyoming Reformed Churches are sharing in ministry together. If

NEW PRAYER PARTNER LISTS will soon be available. Prayer is the
heartbeat of the church! When we pray for people personally, we
bring them right to the very heart of God. If you have not been a part
of this program at Grace in the past, now is the time to sign up. You
will be given a list of people to pray for each week. Sign up in the
narthex. If you have been a part of this in the past, there is no need
to sign up again.
HELP! Our local Faith Food Pantry is in need of help. Due to increased
gas cost and lack of donation of food, their pantry is extremely low.
Following is a list of items they need the most: crackers, box
potatoes, pork & beans, canned fruit, instant rice, Spaghetti o’s and
Ravioli, spaghetti sauce, Tuna Helper, jam/jelly, hand soap, toilet
paper. Anything else (except vegetables-they have plenty)
would be appreciated also.
NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR SERVICE! RCWS has given money to Habitat
for Humanity to build “houses in a box” here in GR for Hurricane
victims. Volunteers will build 2 of these homes in a Steelcase
warehouse at 44th and Eastern. Building will take place on Saturday,
February 4, 11, and 18 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and also Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday of these weeks. You do not need to be a
skilled builder to help. When these homes are complete, they will be
loaded on semi-trucks and shipped to Alabama and finished on site.
Please check your Galaxy for more details and sign up on the table in
the narthex. Also, on February 4 & 11, we will be providing food for
the workers…if you would like to donate food, help prepare it, or
serve it, sign up on the sheet and you will be called.
THE PRAYER OF JABEZ video and study guide is missing! Could you
