Circle of Hope  Back Pack Project

Image result for backpack project  There are so many school children who have little or nothing to eat on weekends.  The Circle of Hope, here at Grace, started a project in 2016 to prepare back packs of food for the children to take home.  The project has been both successful and rewarding and if you would like to be a part of this project, contact any member of Hope Circle.  If you would like to make a donation, make your check out to:  Grace UMW, Hope Circle and at the bottom of your check be sure to write Back Pack Project.  Jeannette Galloway, Chairperson, would like to thank you for helping with the Back Pack Project. She can be reached at (864) 441 – 3743.

Christmas Cantata December 4th 

The Grace Chancel Choir will present “The Christmas Light” arr.  by Patrick M. Liebergen on Sunday, December 4th during the morning worship service.    The musical texts and dramatic narrative remind us of the hope, peace, joy, and love associated with the Advent season and of the coming of God’s light on Christmas day.  The masterwork choruses and duet are selected from the works of J. M. Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Praetorius, and Schubert and arranged from the Christmas carol melodies of Gruber, Handel, Mendelssohn, and Wade.  The dramatic narrative is drawn from biblical passages.  Be sure to mark this date on your calendar now, and invite your family and friends for this special Christmas musical celebration!

Grace Children to Showcase their Musical Gifts!

  Our very talented and busy Children’s Ministry Team is planning to “showcase” the musical gifts of our children on December 4th at 6pm in the sanctuary.  The children will delight us by ringing “Angels We Have Heard on High” with their bells, followed by singing “Away in a Manger,” and then concluding with a liturgical dance to “O Come All Ye Faithful”!  Please come and support our wonderful Grace kids as they help focus our attention on Christmas worship.  This evening promises to honor the most cherished gift ever given through the musical gifts of children.  We hope you can join us!  You will certainly be blessed!  We want to sincerely thank our MCF/Sonshiners leadership team and especially Sally Summers and April Glenn for teaching our children how to lead Christmas worship!

Ummm! We can just taste our  UMW’s wonderful cookies!

 We are definitely looking forward to the UMW’s delicious Christmas cookies and hot chocolate served on December 4th as refreshments in the Fellowship Hall after our children “showcase” their musical gifts in the sanctuary.  We are asking that the cookies be brought to the church kitchen by 12pm on that day.  Thank you UMWs for using your gifts to help celebrate the Christmas Season with our church family!  You do so much for everyone!
