Volunteers are still needed for set up prior to the sale and clean up/loading the truck after the sale.

QUARTERLY CONTRIBUTION STATEMENTS are available on a table in the narthex beside the door to the sanctuary. Please pick up your statement to save on postage needed for mailing them to you. If you would like to start receiving your statements by email, please tell Jim Kirkwood. He also has automatic fund transfer forms if you want to save on writing checks.

THE GRACE HELPING MADISON DRIVE for the fall will benefit Kids to Love. Kids to Love is an organization, located in Madison, that helps foster children find forever families. Many of their foster children are between the ages of 10 and 18. The youth group decorated a fall tree with leaves that have wish list items for Kids to Love's Christmas for the Kids program. Please find a leaf with an item you wish to purchase & donate, and keep the leaf so the youth know which items are taken. Please note that all donated items must be new (not used). Donations will be collected at Grace until December 1.

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, is well underway. To date, Grace has received pledges and gifts totaling $31,600.
