No 2020 Grace Yard Sale
The committee tried putting off the decision as long as it could, but unfortunately, the 2020 Grace Yard sale will not be taking place. With all the people it takes to put on the event, as well as bringing so many people into the building, it has been deemed too much of a risk. We realize that many in the local community depend on some of the great deals in the yard sale. So the local missions committee has put a list of places together for you to donate the items you would typically donate to Grace. We hope that by doing this, we, as a church, will still be able to help the local community.

Congregational Camping Retreat
Thank you to everyone who made this year's camping retreat a success despite the circumstances.
Bethel Men's Shelter Update
Bethel Men’s Shelter is renovating the bathrooms to meet current ADA standards and increase capacity, allowing them to safely and comfortably accommodate their clients. Grace donations help make this possible! They can always use donations of -men’s underwear -twin sheets (thin, so they wash and dry quickly). You can order those items here. Elizabeth would be happy to take them to the shelter for you.
We need your help to serve meals!
E-mail Elizabeth if you can help: email@example.com. Help is needed on the following dates:
