Grace Community Church continues to support Operation Christmas Child through the packing of shoeboxes. For the past several years, we have traveled to the OCC Atlanta Processing Center to inspect and repack boxes for shipping. We have a trip planned to work in the Atlanta Processing Center on December 19th from 8:00am - 10:00am. The processing center inspects boxes before they are sent to their various destinations. If you are interested, please see Sis. Beverly Wheat.
The OCC group is inviting ladies to the church from 5:00pm - 8:00pm to pack shoeboxes and chew and chat. To date, we have 624 shoeboxes packed. Come out and have a chill evening with a wonderful group of people and help touch the lives of children who may not have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
We are grateful to God for having the means to beautify our church campus. Our goal is to make the church look beautiful and be a safe environment for all. We are happy to announce that our parking lot has been completely paved and striped! We thank you for your giving and your generosity towards this project. Many thanks to the ministries and individuals who donated as well. As God allows, we will do more! To God be the glory for the things that He has done.
Grace will have its annual Fishers of Men Fish Fry on October 20th! Please join us for worship, food, family and great fellowship!

We hope to see you there!
Our first Church Orientation will be on March 10th. We postponed the March 3rd meeting due to the inclement weather. Please pray for the families affected in Lee County! God bless you.

At Grace, we are a little church with the power to make a huge impact for the kingdom. We received a request from the Ministry Council for support to our Philippines Missionaries. They are asking that we pack offering boxes for the Loaves and Fishes Ministry. Boxes will need to be collected on November 18th and will be distributed on November 4th. We have to do what we can while we can. Let’s get behind this effort and help to spread the Gospel to those Filipino Christians who are in need.

We have a special little man in our church named Jesse. A few weeks ago, the doctors at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Cardiac Unit found that Jesse has to have open heart surgery this month. Please keep Jesse and his parents Soshia Nicole Juarez Ruiz and her husband in your prayers. If the Lord leads you to donate, please do. They will have to take off 2 weeks during the surgery. The GoFundMe page link is here: Jesse’s Fund. Jesus said in Matthew 25:34-40 “34“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40“The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ Let us remember this family and show love to them during this trying time.
Wednesday night Bible Study will be a night of giving on October 17th. We are dedicating the Bible Study time to feeding those displaced by Hurricane Michael.
