Announcements for 1/26/20

DONATION CENTER:  Please help us keep our Donation Center (located in the coat room near the parking lot) neat by donating only those items requested.  We appreciate your generous thoughts, but our partner agencies can only use certain items according to their missions.  Items that have not been requested create extra work for our volunteers.  If you have things you would like to donate to the spring Grace Ladies’ rummage sale, please speak to Denise in the office and she will help you find a place to store them.  Thank you for your cooperation with our ongoing mission projects.   

 JANUARY MISSION ENVELOPES are designated to support Young Life, an international youth organization with local chapters whose purpose is to bring teens to the knowledge of our loving Savior.  Several of our youth are, or have been, involved in Young Life.  Their annual fundraising dinner is scheduled for March 26.  Donations in January will allow us to submit our gifts early enough to be included in the list of supporters at the dinner.  We will also reserve a table for the dinner in March, so if you are interested in attending, watch for a sign up sheet which will be available in February.  Dick Crawford has been active with Young Life for many years and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

ANNUAL BATHROOM TISSUE COLLECTION:  Beginning next Sunday, we will have tables available in the chapel and narthex to receive donations of toilet tissue.  Heart, Love, & Soul tells us it is one of their most requested (but least donated) items.  This is something that all of us use daily and most of us take for granted (until we run out, that is).  But it cannot be purchased with EBT cards (formerly called food stamps), so those living in poverty in our city often have difficulty providing this item for their families.  Your gifts will help our neighbors in need maintain their dignity. 

PIONEER FUNDRAISER: Youth for Truth is heading up a fundraising campaign with an ambitious goal!  Check out our table in the fellowship hall to find out how you can BUY, SELL, OR DONATE to help!

SAVE THE DATE: the next Night Lights gathering is set for Saturday, February 15, 7-9 pm.

 NOW HIRING:  If you or someone you know are considering the Office Administrator position here at Grace, please go to https://indeedhi.re/2QTJmng and apply ASAP.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED.  We are in need of greeters for Grace’s upcoming photography sessions taking place in February.  Volunteers will be greeting families, providing families with paperwork to be completed prior to their photo session and keeping the flow of traffic within the building running smoothly.  A sign-up sheet can be found on the glass display case.
