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.

 

Please sign the attendance pad, in the pews during both services, and include your mailing address and phone number, in case we do not have it. As winter approaches, we would like to make sure we have a working telephone chain in case we need to cancel services due to the weather. Announcement for cancellation of services due to the weather, will also be posted on the website as well as our Facebook Page.
