THE JAM-BOREE IS COMING AGAIN IN JUNE


Yes, on Saturday, June 4th, David Greaves is organizing a Jam-boree. As was the case last year, we’re looking forward to our Jam-boree on the first Saturday in June. There’s a wide array of home-made jams and other treats for sale, lovingly prepared by master jammer David Greaves. You’ll also be able to have a refreshing break in the Tea Room which will be available at the same time. Mark it on your calendar now – the date is Saturday, June 4th.


COMMUNITY LUNCHES ONGOING


Coming on the third Thursday of each of March, April and May is our monthly Community Lunch at Grace. Despite the name, actual members of Grace United’s own congregation are specifically invited! You can also assist by helping to make sandwiches to go with the delectable soup made by our master soup maker, Heinz Probst. Watch out in your Sunday Calendar or on the Notice Board in the Church Hall for the dates of the lunches. Many thanks to Bill and Cathy Dixon for spearheading this ongoing outreach initiative!   


MEMORIAL BENCHES


After considerable research and deliberation, the Property Committee has arrived at a design and an installation schedule for the benches. We understand that the benches have been ordered, and our only delay is to wait for the frost to come out of the ground so that concrete pads can be installed.

  

GREETING, READING, ETC. SIGN-UP

  

The volunteer sign-up sheet in the Church Hall has been posted for the 1st quarter of 2016. None of the tasks – Greeting, Reading, Offering and Refreshments – should be intimidating. In the case of the offering, the process has become streamlined so that all you need to do is collect the offering on the plates. All the deposit and record-keeping work in handled by members of the Finance Committee.
