Dear Friends of Grace,
School is out and summer is upon us; and far from being a relaxing time, your church is as busy as ever. As we near the middle of summer here’s some of what we’re up to:
¨ Our VBS is set to be our best ever starting July 30.
¨ Our Ministry Team shepherds are preparing a Prayer Vigil and planning retreat.
¨ Our Feed the Bay project continues to serve many Anchor Bay students.
¨ Our Worship Team and U.M. Men are preparing for our Parish Picnic Aug. 27.
Meanwhile, our weekly worship, church school and bible studies continue. So, you can see things are not slowing down at all! All we do is possible because of the faithful gifts of people like you. Thank you!
We do find, however, that because attendance and giving traditionally dip in the summer, we must tighten our belts on spending. So here’s a gentle reminder that if you’ve been away, or are planning to be away, please remember to continue your support of your church’s ministry either by bringing or mailing your gift to the church, or using the Easy Giving option on our web site:
graceumcnb.org. Thank you! Have a great summer!

Jesus called his followers to “make disciples of all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything” he has commanded (Matt.28:19-20). Our primary response to that call is lived out through the church and its mission of Worship, Hospitality, Nurture and Mission. Our involvement in those ministries can be through hands-on involvement, or through offering resources to make it happen. Yet, with many claims on our time and talent, we find we’re not always consistent with our presence and gifts.
“Easy Giving” is simply a convenient, safe and timely way to offer hands-in support for our church ministries whether we’re in attendance every week, or attending to the many things that claim our time and attention. It is done electronically, the same way many of us pay bills online or through direct deposit, and it is especially convenient for members and friends who reside in far-flung places, but still have a heart for Grace church and its ministries!
To participate, click the “Easy Giving” logo above, which will take you to a secure page where you can sign up for weekly, monthly or one-time giving from your bank account or credit card. If you have questions, please call the church office at 586-725-1054.
We at Grace have been richly blessed, and we’ve been effective in many levels of ministry and mission. Now we’re poised to do even more on behalf of Christ! Thank you for being a part of that ministry, and for your prayerful support.
