Opportunities to Serve
FOR THIS ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS SEASON GRACE CHURCH WILL CONTIUNE TO SUPPORT THE “HEART’S PLACE SERVICES WEEKEND BACKPACK OF FOOD FOR HOMELESS KIDS!”
OUR NEXT PACKING DAY IS THIS SUNDAY DECEMBER 1st AFTER 10:00AM WORSHIP DURING FELLOWSHIP TIME IN THE PARLOR!
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
Approximately 1700 children go hungry over the weekend in Baltimore City because they are homeless. But attempting to resolve the homeless issue is something that with a lot of work we can accomplish and we can take pride in helping to accomplish this!
Grace Church has pledged that we will pack 20 backpacks for the month of October helping with this cause. So for the month of September we will be collecting the items listed below. Please feel free to collect for a whole backpack, or donate what items that you can. You can also make a $25.00 donation to Grace Church that will sponsor all of the items needed for one backpack! Simply mark your donation made to Grace Church as “Backpack Program” and place it in Rev. Dave’s Mailbox in the workroom, place it in the weekly offering, or drop it off at the church office.
Items donated can be placed during the week in the box labeled “BACKPACK PROGRAM DONATIONS” in the TOWER ROOM or in the box in the PARLOR during FELLOWSHIP TIME ON SUNDAY MORNINGS.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR SUPPORTING THIS MINISTRY AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF THOSE IN NEED IN BALTIMORE CITY!
