Mission Team Opportunity – Give Ye Them To Eat, Tlancualpican, Mexico
Give Ye Them To Eat (GYTTE) is again hosting work teams and is looking for members from churches around the country. Grace Church has a long and blessed history with GYTTE and has had team members experience work and community with people of Mexico over the years. There are two possibilities for work experiences coming up this year that offer opportunities to understand the culture and reality of rural Mexico. The Mission Commission will sponsor Grace members who want to take advantage of one of these mission team experiences by paying 1/2 of the team fee and also the project cost. For more information about what each team will be doing, click on the link below to the letter outlining the activities and work. The dates are July 5-13 and November 29-December 7. To receive sponsorship from the Mission Commission, please contact Lois Waters at

Easter Egg Hunt a Great Success!
On behalf of our Common Grace campus and the folks at Cedar Lake Village, thank you so much for making the Community Easter Egg Hunt a WONDERFUL success! It was an exciting morning full of laughter and fun for so many people across our community. Thank you to the volunteers who gave their time, and to the many who came to participate, eat pancakes, and spend the morning together!!
Volunteers Are a Gift
At Grace, Center of Grace and Common Grace we are fortunate to have so many talented volunteers that share their many varied gifts with us. We are truly thankful for each person’s gift of their time and talents. We would like to celebrate these individuals together. If there is someone you would like to thank for sharing their gifts with us, write a note at one of the information desks and drop into the box. Then join us on May 5th between services to help us recognize the many giving hands of grace.
