Grace Weekly - Serve

Feast for Firefighters - Station 69

Please join us - invite your Sunday School class, Bible Study, Disciple Group, friends or family to bless the firefighters at Station 69 (right across the beltway from Grace) with a feast! A thoughtful meal - homemade or from a restaurant (many will offer a discount for first responders) to share with the 11 firefighters who are stationed there! 

We hope to bless them, show our support and love at least once per month, so thank you in advance for your efforts. If you have questions or need another date please contact Kristy Elmore, kelmore@gpch.org.

Food Donations for WHAM

FOOD DONATIONS FOR WHAM

WHAM continues to need our help filling their food pantry. We will be collecting all types of mac n’ cheese, soup and pasta for WHAM (West Houston Assistance Ministries). Bring your donations and drop them off in the WHAM donation bins at the Connection Center during normal church office hours or on Sunday. For more information, please contact Becky Ghazi.


Calling All Cookie Bakers!

Volunteer bakers, we need you! Can you make three dozen homemade cookies for Sunday mornings? We will supply the individual cookie bags for you to place your cookies in. These bags will be available for you to pick up at the Welcome Center Receptionist Desk. Once you have baked your cookies and placed them in the individual bags, you just bring them to the Coffee Bar before you go to Worship. There is not a sweeter and warmer welcome than a homemade cookie. Sign up HERE. Thank you for the tasty treats! 


Christmas for the City 2022

CHRISTMAS FOR THE CITY 2022

Sunday, December 11 following worship

We are excited for our 8th annual Christmas for the City. This year we will again be building walls for four houses with Habitat for Humanity, continue our relationship with Kids’ Meals, Inc. to pack 4000 lunches for preschoolers and be making family kits for Houston Welcomes Refugees.

SCHEDULE

  • 9:30 a.m. Worship
  • 11 a.m. Check-in and enjoy lunch catered by Demeris BBQ
  • 11:30 a.m. Welcome and prayer in the Courtyard
  • 11:45 a.m. Work projects begin
  • 2 p.m. Kids’ Meals and Refugee kits finished, load and deliver
  • 4:30 p.m. Habitat wrap-up and clean-up

Wear your Christmas for the City t-shirt and construction attire to start building right after worship and lunch. Christmas for the City T-shirts ($10) will be available for purchase Sunday mornings starting November 27.

WHO CAN SERVE:

  • Children ages 4-15 will have the opportunity to package lunches for Kids’ Meals, make family kits, work on crafts and write prayers on the Habitat home build boards
  • Adults and students ages 16 and older can serve on the wall build or be crew leaders for packaging lunches, wrap and label toys and crafts
  • Adults may serve on a hospitality team to provide refreshments to all of our volunteers
  • Childcare will be available for ages 3 and under. Please select this option during the online registration process

HOW TO GIVE:

  • Your generous contributions will help us reach our financial goal of $35,000 to make these projects a reality for families in our city. You may give online or with a check made payable to Grace (it is important to note “Christmas for the City” on the memo line). You can also contribute on Sunday mornings in the courtyard.

Here are some suggested ways to give:

  • Walls for four houses: Single boards for $25, a room for $1500, or an entire house for $7500
  • 5,000 lunches: 20 lunches for $30, 200 lunches for $300 or 500 lunches for $750
  • 100 welcome kits: Buy 1/2 a welcome kit for $50, 1 welcome kit for $100, or 2 welcome kits for $200
  • A financial contribution of your choice.
  • Pray for Christmas for the City. Pray that people may be moved during worship and blessed by the children and students performing that day. Pray also for good weather, smooth logistics and that the recipients receiving Habitat homes and Kids’ Meals would see the face and love of Jesus through these efforts.
  • Decorate bags for kids’ meals. As we prepare for the event, please bless our families by picking up a stack of brown lunch bags, decorating them (no stickers please) and returning them to the Welcome Center before December 10. The bags are available for pick up in the Connection Center in a bin marked “Kids’ Meals.”

Register HERE for Christmas for the City and the Demeris BBQ lunch ($12).

Living Water International Contribution Update

Grace has had a long time partnership in supporting Living Water International. Over the past 7+ years we've sent multiple teams to serve in Nicaragua, Guatemala and Haiti building and maintaining water wells. Here is a brief update on their support and our role in this thriving non-profit who brings water and the Gospel to all who are thirsty.

  • To date, 623 congregations have given $1 or more to Living Water International over the past 5 years.
  • The total giving from those congregations is $21.7 million dollars.
  • $11.8 million of the $21.7 million has come from 8 congregations.
  • Grace is one of those 8 congregations having given $1,057,260 over the past 5 years.

We're so grateful to partner with this group to serve around the world.
