BACK PACK & SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
It’s back-to-school season and Just Right ( our Missions & Local Outreach Team here at Grace) has notified us about a fantastic opportunity. One of the neighbourhood groups in the west end of Guelph is running a school supply drive to help provide high school backpacks and school supplies for around 150 students and they need our help. This week, make it your mission to help a student in need and purchase a backpack and school supplies! Be sure to drop off these items before this coming Sunday August 25th. Wish to help even more? Join us to help assemble the backpacks on Tuesday Aug 27th from 10am-12pm at Westwood Public School. For more info, contact Niki Cantelon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women's Fall Small Group: God of Creation (Survey Below!)
Ladies! Are you looking for a new way to dig into the Scriptures? We are looking to connect women into small groups that will study Genesis, Chapters 1-11. This fall we will be using Jen Wilkin's study tool "God of Creation" beginning the week of September 15th until the end of November.
On August 25th, we will be hosting a meeting in between both services (from 10-10:30am) in the Parents Lounge for any women who are interested in learning more about possibly joining, hosting and facilitating. To ensure these women’s small groups stay small, connected, and intentional, we have created a survey below to help us lead and organize well. Please complete this survey by Wednesday, August 28th. If you have any questions in the meantime please don't hesitate to connect with Julie Kikkert or Jenn Wilks. https://forms.gle/B6UN2h3zBXgJFc7j8
Our Fall Launch is on Sunday September 15th! Learn about our teams, join a small group, and connect with each other. As we lead up to that date, we encourage you to take some time to think about your skills and gifts, and browse our teams page to see which team you would like to join. www.gracecommunity.ca/getinvolved
