PASTORAL EMERGENCY CONTACT
  The GLC phone system now has a pastoral emergency mailbox.
In the event of a pastoral emergency, dial the GLC phone number (419-474-6403) and select option 4. Leaving a message in this mailbox will automatically trigger a notification phone call to the person on-call. That person can then dial in to receive the message and contact the number the caller has left.
Non-emergency phone calls to this mailbox will be returned during normal business hours.

 

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD                                                                                                                                                        ITEM FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH: Toothbrushes
  It is time to begin collecting items for our Operation Christmas Child Project. Our goal this year is to turn in 150 Boxes. That means that we need 150 of each of the items we place in each box.
  This project has become a tradition at Grace Lutheran Church. The members of Grace have been in partnership with Operation Christmas Child for many years. Last year, we were able to send 150 boxes to Pilgrim Church which serves as a drop-off site for local donations. In 2018, 10,623,776 shoebox gifts were sent to 112 countries and territories. 4 million shoebox recipients participated in the follow up discipleship program and more than 2 million students made decisions for Christ. Every box that we pack is an opportunity for church partners to tell a boy or girl about Jesus.
  Here at Grace, each month we ask for a different item. In March we are collecting toothbrushes. For a look at the complete donation schedule visit our "Being God's Grace" page. While you're there, check out some other ways you can help or be helped by this place called "Grace".
  You may drop off your donations at any time. There is a box in the Outreach Room next to the Sacristy we use for
donations with the OCC label. Thank you to everyone who has supported this opportunity over the years and we hope you will continue to support it this year. If you would like to be a part of this project or you have questions, please see Linda Mason.

 

 

 

THURSDAY 10 a.m. BIBLE STUDY
  Join us! We have fun and we have great discussions. This week we read Matthew chapter 10. Jesus gathers his disciples and sends them into the world. Their mission is to speak of God’s heart of love. We follow Jesus today when we speak God’s words of healing, love and grace. 

 

 

  DON’T FORGET TO COMPLETE THE PARISHIONER HEALTH NEEDS SURVEY!!
