SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

GREETERS

If you attend the 11 a.m. service at Grace, you may have noticed that we have resumed our greeter ministry. We invite you to participate for a month at a time. If you would like to volunteer, but can’t make it every Sunday, please let us know.

In addition to a friendly “good morning” to everyone, duties include showing first-time visitors where the Sunday School classes meet, pointing out the restrooms, accompanying them to the sanctuary for worship and introducing them to the ushers.

Greeters will also lock the doors a few minutes after the worship service begins.

Please let Joyce Duckworth know if you are willing to be a part of this important ministry.

The new January-February Upper Room is available, in large and small print, in the back and at the side of the sanctuary at the Grace United Methodist Church, which is located at 828 North Main Street in Meadville, Pennsylvania 16335.

Offering envelopes for 2020 are available to pick up at the back of the sanctuary at Grace. If you don’t have offering envelopes and would like to have them, please let us know.

JANUARY FOOD DRIVE

As we have done for several years, the Missions Committee of Grace UMC is inviting donations of food and toiletries from now through early February. Items will be donated to a local food pantry, such as the one at First Presbyterian Church in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

Toiletries such as shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, liquid soap, and sanitary supplies are especially helpful.

Please keep in mind that we can not pass along opened packages or items which are past their pull date.

Items can be placed on the tables at the rear of the sanctuary at the Grace United Methodist Church, located at 828 North Main Street in Meadville, Pennsylvania 16335.

THANK YOU!

Many thanks to Betty Hollabaugh for leading the worship services today.
