CELEBRATE GRACE: RESERVE YOUR SEATS (…AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!)

Step back into the 1920s and join us at Cypress Manor to experience a night full of jazz, feasting, and celebration as we come together to benefit the GRACE Annual Fund. This year’s Celebrate GRACE will be a night full of fun and surprises – and you will NOT want to miss out! In addition to a silent auction with exciting items available only to attendees to bid on, the evening will also feature a Live Painting by Bryn Gillette and live jazz by the Daze Work Band.

Tickets to this year’s event will go fast. So ladies and gents, be ready to get all dolled up with your 1920s-style get-ups or come dressed in black, white and gold business casual.

Grab your friends and reserve your free tickets today! (Singles, couples, and groups are all encouraged to attend.) If you are interested in serving as a table host(ess), email mbandy@gracechristian.net to sign up! We also NEED VOLUNTEERS to make the night a success!

Men of GRACE: Join us for Donuts for Dads! Our guest speaker will be Larry Falivena, fellow GRACE dad and advocate for people suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). After his own ALS diagnosis in 2017, Larry knew that he wanted to raise awareness of this disease and help raise funds for ALS research. He made national headlines by taking his family around the country this past summer to meet with other people who have been affected by ALS and tell their stories, all while visiting every Major League Baseball park – an “Iron Horse Tour.” Come join the Men of GRACE as Larry talks about his trip, his diagnosis, and what God is doing in his life. The event will be in the Student Center of the Upper Campus.
