Celebrate GRACE is this Friday night!

If you have not already submitted a RSVP, there are a few seats left and we would love for you to join us Friday night for an evening of fellowship and celebration. Conversely, if you submitted a RSVP and will not be attending, please help us be good stewards of our funds and let Michele Bandy (Mbandy@GRACEChristian.net) know as soon as possible so that the caterer can be informed and your meal can be cancelled.

We still need 6-8 people to help with set-up and clean-up before and after Celebrate GRACE. Please consider filling one of the few remaining volunteer positions.

The Celebrate GRACE Auction Closes Thursday Night!

There are still lots of items that have no bids and some wonderful one-of-a-kind items and experiences that you can bid on at the Celebrate GRACE online auction. Bidding will end at 10:00pm Thursday night.
