Do you ever wish we could continue worshipping together longer than we do on Sundays? Well, Kathy and our amazing music team have planned a special evening of JUST WORSHIP; a whole evening of lifting our voices to God and celebrating together His love in our lives through music. Join us on Sunday February 24th at 7:00pm!
Are you expecting a Baby or ARE NEW TO PARENTHOOD?
Your church family at GCC would love to help with the adjustment in those first few weeks by providing some fresh cooked meals, delivered right to your door! Please contact Cathy Fairchild at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Annual General Meeting
On behalf of the Leadership Board, we would like to invite you to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday March 3rd at 12:15pm in our auditorium at Grace. All Grace attendees are welcome to attend! Childcare will be provided.
VBS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
VBS is our Vacation Bible School we host for one week each summer and is certainly a well-anticipated event for kids in our church and across the city of Guelph! We are starting to gear up for this year’s VBS. Pastor Steve Kennedy is heading up the VBS team this year and has 5-6 Key leaders in place, but to make it work, between now and May, we need to have a commitment from 50-60 volunteers! (Help is needed in many areas: registration, crafts, games, story telling, etc). The more volunteers we have, the more kids we can accept! Last year we have about 30-35% kids from un-churched families. Let’s see that number grow!
We know you’re already in full swing planning for the summer ahead. Here are the VBS dates to mark down on your calendars. Registration will open May 1st & close May 31st. VBS week is July 8-12.
SATURDAY NIGHT SUPPER- FOOD PREP NEEDED
Saturday Night Supper is quickly approaching (Saturday March 16th) and we need YOUR help with food prep! Click here to see what food is needed, and be a part of Grace’s mission to support those in need in Guelph. Details on where to drop off food and other details are on the spreadsheet. Our Youth NYC Missions Team will be hosting and serving at this event. This will be a chance for our team of 16 students and adult leaders to build team unity, and serve their community together before going on their trip.
(New to Saturday Night Supper? SNS is an incredible community service event, where churches across the city of Guelph take turns to provide and serve meals to roughly 150 people in need every Saturday throughout the entire year at Royal City Church. What an incredible, hands-on ministry! )
