For Our Visitors
Our Grace Church family welcomes you!  Please sign our attendance pad when you come to worship so we know you have visited with us.  We have a nursery available for all children age 4 and under.  For children over 4 years of age, activity bags are available for their use in the sanctuary during the service.  We practice open communion, which means we welcome any baptized Christian to the table.  It is the Lord's Table, and he invites all who trust him to share the feast he has prepared.
            Rev. Dr. Robert C. Joy, Pastor
                Mrs. Judy Bott, Organist 
                           Mr. Harry Hofmeister, Music Director

Pastor’s Note: Don’t leave without being a blessing to someone else.  Please join us for coffee hour in fellowship hall.  You may join a table or stand and mingle!

The choir is very thankful for the support of the congregation.  During the worship service, they would ask that there not be applause after the anthems.  (Encouraging our soloists (young or old) with applause is always appropriate.)

Sunday, February 25 is the Annual Congregational meeting. Please submit committee reports to Marcy by January 28.  Thank you.

Snoopy and Charlie Brown love CHOCOLATE! This is one Youth Club you do not want to miss. Miss Kathy will have a story to share about chocolate and its history and information about Hershey and how they make their chocolate!  Snoopy begged Charlie Brown to make Miss Othmar’s spaghetti again and he is bringing his Snoopy dog dishes to fill with spaghetti. Of course there will be chocolate covered strawberries, carrots and dip, tossed salad, applesauce, Bread Chef bread, Snoopy cookies and pink lemonade.  Come join the fun with crafts, songs, messages and games!
Tuesday, February 6, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
Parents: Enjoy a special treat, parents will get Choco-latte Crunch to take home as a treat to enjoy when they pick up their children!

There are large print bulletins available for those who may need them.  They are located on the table leading into the sanctuary.

Note: Sermon copies are usually available on the prayer request table by the door.  Past weeks’ sermons are on the larger table by the door.  Take a copy as you come in or as you leave, or to a friend!
