Trunk or Treat: Oct. 29th, 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. Trunk or treat is a version of trick or treating, but has a number of advantages of going door to door: a safer environment for kids, opportunities for Friendship Evangelism, and more fun for everyone! There’s plenty to do and everyone is needed. How can you get involved? Stop by the table in the gym narthex during today’s Grace ConneXions to discover the options.
Women's Retreat: Oct. 20th - 21st here at Grace. The theme is Chosen and Cherished - The Bride of Christ. Our keynote speaker is Connie Johnson, the dynamic speaker from our Spring Brunch! We will have great food, pampering and a tissue paper flower craft for those who want to be creative! Pick up the brochure at the ConneXions Center. Cost is $10 for Friday, $15 for Saturday, or $25 for both days. Sign up now!
Missions Trip Opportunity: The Missions Committee, in conjunction with EFCA Crisis Response, will be sending a Hurricane Harvey Response Team to Texas Jan. 7th - 13th, 2018. We have been assigned to work out of Corpus Christi Bayshore Church to the following areas: Port Aransas, Rockport, and Port Lavaca. Men, women and teens age 14 and above are needed for a variety of jobs including prayer walking, gutting, drywalling, mudding, painting, carpentry, electrical, cooking, landscape, plumbing, roofing, clean-up and just talking to people affected by the hurricane. For more info and to sign up to be part of our church team, please contact Susan Morris. Crisis Response wants our team application form ASAP.
Operation Christmas Child: Samaritan's Purse "Operation Christmas Child" will have box drop off from November 13-20 at Grace. We are aiming for 50+ boxes!

Be praying for the child who will receive your box.
