All December 2021 and Spring or Summer 2022 graduates, whether it is from high school or college, are invited to be recognized at the 9:30 a.m. service on Sunday, June 5. Graduation is no small event. It is a significant milestone marking both endings and beginnings, and your Grace family wishes to recognize this milestone. If you wish to be recognized on this special day or you know someone who should be recognized, please contact the Church Office with the name of the school graduating or graduated from, the degree earned or will be earned if graduating from college, and the graduate’s plans for the future. We look forward to recognizing our graduates on this day.
Gretchen will be in Classroom 3 on Sunday May 29 for anyone who would like their Blood Pressure checked.
- Besides the trees budding out and the geraniums in the flower box we now have the planters by Brenner and the “frogs” planted with beautiful plants. Thanks to Connie for all your hard work at making us look beautiful!
- We have had a Canada Goose make a few fly-bys but not land at least not yet, so it is an unofficial part of our menagerie.
- We have to have mole children (or what ever baby moles are called) as there are more tunnels than ever. So please be careful when walking on grassy areas so that you do not trip and fall.
- To help keep Grace looking beautiful please put dishes, cups, water pitchers and coffee parts away after washing. Addendum – baby moles are called pups!
- Our Food Collection is still taking donations on Monday from 9-12 and items can be placed in the bins in the Graceful Giving Room. The need for food is not going away but is increasing due to the higher costs. If you are able, please help.
- Personal Needs continues to be held on Tuesdays and has continued needs. They also have a bin in the Graceful Giving Room.
- Hold the date!!! Pastor Brenda’s installation service will be Wednesday June 15 at 6:30PM in the large church. Please come and celebrate this wonderful event!
- Remember: Grace is the people not the building!!
Healthy People! Healthy Parish!
The longest day of the year is fast approaching on Tuesday June 21. With it being light earlier many of us get moving earlier and with it being lighter later we can do projects later.
So, you ask where is this going????
Well, Saturday June 25 is still under the affects of the Summer Solstice so you can get up early in the morning, come and donate blood at the Interfaith Blood Drive!! Then go home and do the “honey do” list later in the evening when it is still light and probably cooler.
We have appointments from 8:30-2:30.
Remember to protect your skin and to avoid heat exhaustion you need to stay out of the sun between 10 – 4pm so come inside and give blood!
This is the weekend before the 4th of July which typically has a high need for blood due to accidents, etc.
1 unit of Blood can help as many as 3 people!!!
You can make an appointment on the Red Cross website, call the Red Cross and ask them for appointment at Grace, or call Gretchen Hiatt to make an appointment.
The coming of the summer solstice also means that the warm, sticky, humid, curl your hair, need an ice cream cone weather is on its way.
You are outside and you or someone you know says they don’t feel well or are acting unusual.
It may be symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke!
