Once again Grace Church is filling shoeboxes to send to children around the world. Each month this summer we will collect supplies to fill as many shoeboxes as we can and send them off to bring joy and the Gospel message of hope.
The list of supplies being collected each month can be viewed here and is available at the back of the church. Place your donations in one of the Operation Christmas Child bins found in the Parish House and at the foot of the church stairs.
Grace Church is filling a Time Capsule that will be opened in 25 years. Because Grace had the first service in our current location in June of 1905 this is a good month to look back and learn, and look forward and pray and plan. Everyone will have the opportunity to participate. The Time Capsule will be on display in the Parish House on Sunday. Over the next few weeks we will fill the capsule. We want to let Grace Church of 2043 know who we are, what we value, and what our hopes are for the future. The Time Capsule will be blessed on July 15 and become part of our history wall in the Church Office Building until it is opened in June 2043.
Our second summer movie is Secondhand Lions. In this family-friendly comedy drama, Walter (Haley Joel Osment) is a shy and bookish boy just short of his teens whose mother impulsively decides to leave him for the summer with his eccentric grand-uncles, Hub (Robert Duvall) and Garth (Michael Caine). Rated – PG
Invite your family and friends for a fun night at the movies. Bring your lawn chair and relax while enjoying popcorn, hot dogs and Popsicles as we watch the movie together.
Childcare will be provided.
