Event Flyers & Important Announcements!!
Welcome Pastor Aaron and the Smith Family!!
Operation Christmas Child Season is Here!
For the 8th year in a row, Grace will be participating in the Operation Christmas Child ministry. We have the opportunity to serve Jesus by packing shoeboxes to be distributed worldwide to children in need. Each box will contain special Christmas gifts and most importantly the gift of hearing the gospel message of Jesus! Our campaign will begin on October 6th and all boxes will be due back no later than Sunday, November 25th.
Grace will again this year be a public OCC shoebox collection center for the box collection week of November 18th -25th. We need to form a volunteer team for that week!
The cost of shipping a shoebox is $9.
Please read the “How to pack a Shoebox” brochure found in your O.C.C. shoebox and available in the church. There is important information as to what to pack and what not pack in your shoebox. For more information and to volunteer contact Pastor Scott at email@example.com or call Yoke in the church office at 760-745-0831.
