THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE IS STILL LOOKING for a Stewardship Team Leader. This Ministry Team is responsible for educating our congregation on all forms of stewardship.

ON PENTECOST, WE KICKED OFF THE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN, The Campaign to Reduce Debt, to raise $50,000 to pay toward the mortgage principal by the time our loan is refinanced in July 2019. This will mean lower monthly payments and less interest going forward, freeing up funds for other things. Pledge cards can be turned in any time, either in the offering plate or in the church office. Giving is convenient using auto-draft or using our web site. To date, Grace has received pledges and gifts totaling $27,350. We are over half way to our goal!

LECTIONARY READINGS for Next Week:
1 Kings 8:22-30, 41-43; Ps. 84; Eph. 6:10-20; John 6:56-69
