Special Christmas Offering
During the month of December, you are invited to partner with World Partners in taking the Gospel of Jesus to unreached people groups (UPG). Some of the people we’ve been praying for as a church make up those whom World Partners is looking to engage this coming year. Your finical gift, of any amount, allows discipleship movements to start in unreached areas, from Southern Russia to Northern India to Somalia, Northern Nigeria, and Mozambique. You can participate in this offering from December 3 through December 31. Make checks out to Grace Missionary, and in the memo line put: UNTIL ALL HEAR. If you have any questions, please see Pastor Shawn.

2024 tithing envelopes are in the foyer. Please pick one up or see Rod Staugler if you have any questions.
