Be Part of a Grace Tradition
Grace’s Christmas tree is in place for Advent, and by next Sunday ornaments will be hung on it! Last year, we began a tradition of decorating the tree with ornaments provided by the congregation. If you weren’t here last year, or didn’t hang an ornament on the tree, we hope you will add one this year.
Buy an ornament that reflects your Christmas wishes for Grace – something religious or neutral, please, in white, silver, blue or clear colours. Then hang it on the tree before or after one of the Advent services (November 26 – December 17). Your decoration will become part of the ongoing Grace Christmas tradition for years to come.
The Elf Network (TEN)
The annual Elf Network program is well underway. We will be supporting 18-20 community families this year in addition to helping our Food for Life families.
There are many ways for you to get involved.
🎄 If you knit or shop, we will have our mitten tree set up later this month. Think about hats, scarves, mittens and socks!
🎄You can bring in a bottle of unscented laundry detergent (look for the white bottle) for White Gift Sunday.
🎄 You can bring your singing voices to the annual Christmas Musical Afternoon on Dec 18th.
Food is being organized with donations from Food for Life and Food Share Burlington.
We have started Cooking@Grace up again. Our next session with Chef Marcia is on Thursday November 30th at 4pm on zoom. If you would like to join in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a zoom link will be emailed.
The Grace United Church Women is re-defining itself!
While still under the auspices of UCW because of the various benefits to maintaining that association, a decision has been made to adopt a new name for the group. The Grace unit will be known as W 4 (Women Who Worship and Work) group. This sends the message of our energy and positivity and reflects moving forward with contributions to the life of Grace that are in keeping with our priorities of Growth, Faith and Connection.
Programming for the New Year will start with a speaker on Monday, January 15, 2024 at 1:00 p.m., from Halton Community Liaison Policing on the topic of fraud and scams. This session will be open to the whole church and wider community.
