POLICY REMINDER: FACILITY USE AND RENTAL
 It has been the policy (approved by Grace Council) that all requests to use the church building areas or rooms be in writing. Everyone, whether a member, committee, other church organization, or an outside group must submit a written REQUEST FOR USE OR RENTAL OF FACILITIES form. Completion of this form is what allows events, meetings, or general use of the building to be put on the Master Calendar. This helps minimize conflicts, allows the church to track and monitor building usage, and helps provide accountability if areas used are not left in good order.
 Copies of the current BUILDING USE POLICY are given when the form is given, so that there is no question as to what is expected by the people or organizations using our building. This may seem like a new requirement, but this has been the policy since at least 2013, just not consistently followed.
 Request For Use And Rental Of Facilities, and copies of the Building Use Policy can be obtained by calling or visiting the office, or by downloading the forms from the following links:

 EASTER EGG HUNT A SUCCESS!

  This past Saturday the annual Grace Easter Egg hunt took place here at the
church. To say it was a mega success would be an understatement! The number of children participating well exceeded last year and God sent us great weather. Fun and fellowship was in huge supply. None of this could have happened without the support of the Grace family. The response to the appeal for candy was overwhelming. The volunteers who stepped up to host this event are what made this all possible. To simply say THANKS does not even start to express the emotions of the committee. All of you are awesome!!!! Until it can be better said or done THANK YOU! 

 

A BIG THANK YOU!
  Thank you to all who helped with the Lenten lunches and dinners! The food and fellowship were awesome! Thank you to our hostesses. Thank you Pastor Al, for leading us in learning. Thank you to JoAnne and Debby for playing the piano and the choir for leading us in music! Thank you to all who helped in any way to make up such a successful team!
