Hey, Grace’rs,

It’s beginning to look a lot like Advent!  And I can think of few places better to prepare for Christmas than Grace!

This weekend: We continue our  Advent/Christmas Series—Full Grace Ahead.  This weekend: Full Joy Ahead.  Families with last names starting with A-F have the food table.

Saturday Night Dinner:  We will not be having dinners in December but we do have a special family event each Saturday after worship.  Up this Saturday:  An ornament-making party.

If you missed last weekend’s message on Full Grace Ahead you can view it here.
