GRACE MISSION TRIP to JACKSON COUNTY MINISTRIES

 Kleymeer if you are interested or would like more information.

 

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY REFORMED BUILD VOLUNTEER

 WORK PROJECT – Grace is putting together a work crew to work

 on the house at 1015 Kensington SW on Saturday, November 15.

 Some of the work scheduled includes trim carpentry.  Sign up on the

 narthex table. Call (538-6311) Bill Ver Hulst if you have any questions.

 

THE SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of October is for the

 

 purchase of Water Filtration Systems for those in need in

 developing nations. Clean water means more than safe drinking

 water to women and children in developing nations; it means time,

 freedom, health, and incentive to change their communities.  Clean

 and safe water to drink is just a small step away for so many

 people.  Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of

 diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence,

 including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies

 aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other

 illnesses.  Clean and safe water is a priority!  This special offering will

 be received on October 26.

 

GORDON FOOD SERVICE COUPONS are needed!  We use them

 each week for our Wednesday night dinners.  If you have them, or see

 one in the paper, please bring them to the church office or give them

 to Tymie Boeve.  Thanks!
