Your Ministry of Giving
The mirror in the offering plate takes courage to view. For it might reveal more than we’d want it to do. What you put in is not about buying heaven. But maybe token thanks for the grace that God has given.
SUMMER WORSHIP SERVICE
Grace will be combining our services on every 3rd Sunday of the month this summer, starting in June thru August @ 9:00 AM.
Even if there is no change, please update your family information on the provided sheet. Place in the basket in the lobby. Thank You, Becki

Acolytes for 1st service needed
WHAT DO “ACOLYTES” DO?
Acolytes bring in the “Light of the Lord” and light the two candles on the altar. They will also light special candles as certain times of the year. They distribute and collect the offering plates. At the end of the service, acolytes take the “Light of the Lord” back out into the world, always holding the flame higher than the top of their heads and extinguishing only after exiting the sanctuary.
Acolytes must be tall enough to see the wicks in order to light them.
If you are interested in serving as an acolyte, contact Becki for training and you will be added to the rotation. (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 814-364-1701

Grace UMC Building Usage
Please be advised that all building usage needs to go through the office. With the renovation of Ash Hall, there will be many different organizations and church members using that space. It’s important to keep an accurate calendar and the best way to do this is to schedule through the office. This includes usage of the class rooms upstairs. Please contact Becki in the office at 814-364-1701 for scheduling and questions.
We need Church Checkers if interested, please call Becki in the office at (814) 364-1701.
