Judd's Legacy Oct. 13, 2019



From Allison’s Facebook Page: Allison Gardner is with Brandon Gardner. October 13 at 11:37 AM ·

Today Judd’s light continued to shine at Grace United Methodist as the congregation wore their #juddslegacy t-shirts and presented us with a gracious donation. The love and support our church family has shown us is just unbelievable. They stand behind our mission and because of that we can, as our pastor preached today, RISE UP! This is our story and because of Judd’s life we are ready and willing to do God’s work! Thank you Lord for continuing to guide us, taking the weight of our burdens, and blessing us with our church, our family, and our friends. #riseup #fighttheitch #icpawareness

White Christmas 2019

 Each year Grace UMC takes the amazing opportunity to prepare food boxes to help families in need with a wonderful Christmas meal they would not otherwise be able to enjoy. As we sit around our Christmas tables full of God’s gracious bounty, let us not forget those less fortunate than ourselves. If you would like to submit names of needy families as recipients for White Christmas food boxes, please contact the church office by November 17th. In addition, very soon boxes will be placed around the church for collection of non-perishable food items from our members. You may also contribute by making a check payable to Grace United Methodist Church with “White Christmas Food Box Fund” placed in the “For” line. A little closer to the delivery time, we will purchase, bread, fruit, and hams with these monies. We pray that our gift truly offers a bit of “White Christmas” to our fellow brethren! Thanks in advance for your participation in this meaningful ministry.
