On Sunday, January 26th, we’ll celebrate another year in the life of our church! We’ll recognize our ministries and outreach programs, and celebrate all the signs of new and sustaining life at Grace.
During our regular coffee hour time, we’ll have our Annual Meeting — including nominations for new council members, reports from our committees and teams about activities in 2019, and looking over our proposed 2020 budget.
Amy and Marko Fields are coordinating a chili breakfast for us that morning! They’ll stay after the community dinner on Saturday January 25th to prepare the chili and brownies, and arrive early on Sunday January 26th to prepare salad and bake cornbread. If you’d like to help, please contact Amy at email@example.com.
We’ll see you then!

Only sixteen days into our month-long matching drive, we met our goal! Thank you to the many, many people who gave a little extra at the end of the year to allow us to end 2019 in the black and to have a financial cushion as we begin 2020.
We are proud to report that we collected 1,338 pairs of socks and underwear for The Drawer!
The Drawer is a Twin Cities group that works with local churches and organizations to collect and distribute new socks and underwear for those in need. As in past years, we absolutely stunned The Drawer with our “pairs per capita” count. On average, we gave about ten pairs per congregation member. That’s amazing!
