Random Acts of Kindness — Tuesday, October 17

On Tuesday, October 17, members of the Outreach Committee will be performing Random Acts of Kindness throughout the community.  We invite all members of the Grace Family to participate in this project and perform your own Random Acts of Kindness during the month.  Just a few ideas  — visit a shut-in — offer to do an errand for your neighbor — pay the bill for the person behind you in line at the drive-thru — invite someone to come to church with you at Grace — cut and/or tie a blanket for the Cancer Center — volunteer at a school or community agency — the possibilities are endless!!!  Please challenge yourselves, your family members and friends to extend a kind gesture to someone who is not expecting it!!!  You will be greatly rewarded!!!!

Annual Block Party!

In the spring of 1991 at an Administrative Board meeting, it was proposed that a ‘street party’ be planned to celebrate the end of summer.  This would include inviting the congregations of the downtown churches to join us for a time of fellowship.  Over the years, a variety of groups and individuals have performed for the event.

It was soon discovered that the end of August sun was intense so a few tents were used.  By 2001, tents were ordered with tables and chairs brought outside from the church.  Also in 2001, it rained rather hard but the party took place.  It has been cold, hot, windy, and just right but the party never stops!  The number attending has varied over the years.

BLOCK PARTY 2017 — was August 27! It was a perfect day. Thank you to all the volunteers who cooked, served, sang, played and everything in between!

Club Jesus

Is a ministry that takes place each Sunday night at Euclid United Methodist Church. Recently their attendance has grown dramatically to sometimes up to 90 people! Various committees and individuals prepare the meal on the fourth Sunday of each month. The outreach committee is requesting additional hep from our church family by helping this awesome group with paper products and drink mixes. Please drop your contributions in the office or the baskets in the back of the sanctuary. Club Jesus, thanks you!

 Blanket Ministry

The Nancy Hagan Circle started a blanket ministry…but the entire Grace Church community has joined in this effort and is now making blankets to continue this important ministry.  The director of services of the Genesis Cancer Center said they generally get 10 new patients every week! What a wonderful comfort these blankets can be to those in need in our community. We hope you will consider joining us to continue doing this wonderful outreach. If you are interested in helping out please contact the church office.
