Sewing: Meet on May 12th and May 26th from 10 a.m. till noon to sew duvet covers into bedsheets for hospitals in Central America. Many hands will make lighter work. Thank you to all who have torn them into the flat pieces we can now repurpose. The goal is to finish all of them and transport to the Hub before the June10th opening. Contact Diane Olin White for more information.

Emmanuel Dining Room: Cook May 25, 2017 4:30 p.m. Serve May 26, 2017 11 a.m.

Sign up in the lobby. We will be making the summer salad starting in May

Grace Picnic: Add June 4th to your calendar. Join friends and family at Talley Day Park from 3-7 p.m. for food, fun, and fellowship at the annual picnic. The pavilion is reserved for us. There is a sign up poster in the Pavilion Lobby. Sign up with the number of people attending and what food (s) you are bringing. The church will provide hot dogs, burgers, rolls, drinks, and paper plates and napkins.

Stubbs: Do you have 30 minutes a week you could give to a child from Stubbs? Become a mentor. There is a waiting list of children who would love to chat with you while they eat their lunch. All training is provided and can be done at your home. You can make a difference in a child’s life by being there. Talk to Linda Emerick about what fun she enjoys each week with her mentee.

And if you have another bit of time, 30 minutes, 60 minutes or even more, volunteer in a classroom.

The kindergarten classes have many little ones who benefit from help with sight words, numbers, reading

stories, or just helping the teacher with another set of hands. Times are flexible. Watch the teacher’s

face light up when you first say you are there to volunteer. And then get your weekly enthusiastic

greetings from the children. Contact Diane Olin White for more information about grades and times.

Card Ministry:

Know someone who needs a word of encouragement? Congratulations? A friendly hello? Send their name to the Grace Church card group to send greetings. Come join us at 10 a.m. Tuesdays in the card room, second floor.
