This Week @ Grace Church:  September 25 – October 1, 2022

 

YOU ARE INVITED TO OUR FIRST FUNDRAISING GALA!

Come one and come all for an evening of inspiration, fun, and generosity taking place October 22 at Wesley Forest from 4-8 pm.  Camp Fancy means you can choose your attire from prom night outfits to outdoor

gear. Just be sure to have one part of your outfit that is “fancy” as part of the celebration.  This year's event will honor Dave Poole, a 40 year volunteer of the camping program!  Hosted by The Susquehanna Conference UMC Board of Camp & Retreat Ministry. For more info email: Gala@susumc.org or www.susumcamps.org/Gala

 

NIGHT WITHOUT A BED

As part of our partnership with Family Promise, we will be hosting Family Promise’s National Fundraising Event entitled “A Night Without a Bed”.  The event will take place in our building and around our parking lot beginning Saturday, October 8 and will conclude on Sunday, October 9.  Events for that day include informative presentations regarding homelessness in our area, live music and so much more.

 

ELECTION DAY BAKE SALE

Calling all bakers!  We’re looking to provide a bake sale this election day (November 8).  If you’re interested in making this a success, please contact Ruth Timothy to help out!

 

I-SCREAM, YOU SCREAM!

It was so much fun the first time around, we’re doing it again!  We’ll need just a few volunteers to scoop and serve!  Be sure to sign up here.

 

PUMPKINFEST!

Lemoyne Pumpkinfest is Saturday, October 22!  We need all hands on deck to make this a success.  While there will be a vendor fair in the parking lot that day, our role is providing games and activities for the kids!  Plenty of folks are needed for the day of the event.  Please contact the church office or one of our team leaders (Sam Wright or Leslie Kocher, council liaison) to help with this event.  Please note…this event does NOT replace Trunk or Treat this year. 

 

TRUNK OR TREAT!

In addition to PumpkinFest, we’re bringing back “classic” Trunk or Treat!  This event will take place on the same night as Lemoyne’s trick or treat night (probably Thursday, October 27).  We need at minimum 10 cars to make this a great event.  You may also choose to donate a bunch of candy or other fun snacks to hand out that evening, if you can’t be there.  This is probably the largest outreach event (number of people) our church interacts with all year.  We need you to make it a success!  Sign up here!

 

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY

A women’s Bible study is meeting at Grace Church on Mondays at 10 a.m. in fellowship hall.  ALL women are invited, members or non-members!  If you have any questions, please contact Judy Devlin or Sue Lehmer.

 

CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

Every Sunday, we’re excited to host Grace Kids and Grace Minis!  Each Sunday, children may opt to leave the service when dismissed for a supervised time of lessons, crafts and fun!  In order to make this successful, we are in need of plenty of volunteers.  Please contact the church office to help!
