 sanctuary this morning and they are also listed on the back of your

 bulletin.  You may also make a notation on the Fellowship Register.



We joyously welcome you to Grace Reformed Church! 

Whatever led you to our church today, we believe God rejoices in having

you in this place.  Please take a moment and sign your name and

address on the Fellowship Register as it is passed today.




DISCOVERY KIDZ will NOT meet today.  Children are welcome to

 join their parents in the sanctuary.  Children’s bulletins are available

 at the sound board. 


THE MUSIC MINISTRY today is presented by Bob Moreno, of our

 congregation.  Thank you for sharing your ministry through song

 with us today.


OUR SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of May is designated for

 CONNECTIONS.  This offering will be received today.


ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS meets in the Consistory room

 following the worship service.  They cover scriptural lessons from

 both the old and new testament.  Everyone welcome!


A PRAYER GROUP will meet following the service in the sanctuary

 to pray for Pastor George & Connections, and the needs and vision at

 Grace Reformed Church.


SUNDAYS AT SIX – Our evening service will be held at Faith

 Reformed Church.  Rev. Harvey Hertz will lead the service and share

 the message.

 and Possibilities”.  Wear RED to celebrate the day!  See the insert in

 your bulletin today for the June schedule of messages.

 ice cream social in celebration following the service!


THE TRANSITION TEAM will meet next Sunday after the service in

 the Chapel.




HEALTH CONCERNS:  For all praise reports and prayer concerns,

 see the prayers and praise line in your bulletin today.




THE Y-LIFE MISSION TRIP is coming up soon.  From July 16-23

 the group will be traveling to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  They are still in

 need of about $1000.00 to pay for their expenses.  If you are inclined

 to give toward their trip, you can do so by designating it on your

 offering envelope, or use a pew envelope.  Thank you so much!


THIS SUMMER we would like to incorporate a psalm each week in

 worship.  This will be done through a variety of ways - traditional

 hymn, new (contemporary) arrangement of the hymn, or

 responsorial setting of the hymn. The rendering of this psalm will be

 done creatively through use of the choir, praise team, and/or soloists. 

 We would like to request that you provide us with your favorite psalm

 as a starting point.  If you feel comfortable, we would invite you to

 share during worship why this psalm has impacted your spiritual

 journey.  Otherwise we could put a write up in the bulletin or share

 that you selected this particular psalm.  It would be wonderful to

 have your presence in worship the day the psalm is utilized in

 worship, so please give us your name, psalm and dates that you are

 available.  You can jot it down and place in collection plate, or leave

 on the desk in the office.
