The Grace Community
During the year, we “bring” Grace Church to our neighbors at The Grace Community. Barbara & Bert Nye are at The Harbor each 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday at 2:00 PM. If you would like to join the services, please come! These visits mean so much to the residents.
Bingo at The Harbor: Bert and Barbara Nye volunteer at the memory care unit each Tuesday from 9:30 to 11:00 am to play bingo with the residents. To join in assisting in the game call them at (434) 985-2402.
Our Local Food Bank again thanks the parishioners of Grace Church for their abundant donations. All items are greatly appreciated and at this time, they are low on dry cereal and cereal bars. It has come to our attention that the Food Bank is unable to distribute any items that have expired use-by dates. Please check that your donations have dates at least one month away.
LOVE LAUNDRY – Spring 2018
On Saturday, March 17th, Bert and Barbara Nye held a LOVE LAUNDRY at the laundry room next to the Office at Bailey Court Apartments across the street from Grace Church. They provided free washing, drying and folding loads of laundry for the individuals and families at the complex, starting at 9:00 am. Your donations were greatly appreciated.
On Saturday, March 31st Grace Church hosted their usual 5th Saturday Neighborhood Brunch. Because it was the day before Easter, a special guest, E. Bunny, visited to tell the real first Easter story. These brunches are rewarding experiences! Not only because of the people who are fed, but because of the relationships that are formed through the warm conversations we share.
The next 5th Saturday brunch will be held on June 30th. We will need shoppers, cooks, servers, set-up & clean-up crews, and lots of welcoming hosts. Join us in making this another great success!
