West Carrollton Teachers
Treated To Lunch

Friday, September 18, a team of Grace members served lunch to the teachers and staff at West Carrollton’s Walter Shade ECC School.  The teachers and staff were at the school for an in-service day event.  According to Walter Shade Principal Janet Schieman, the staff appreciated and enjoyed this community outreach effort that enable them to share a meal from their friends at Grace.  The variety packed lunch boxes were prepared by Christopher’s Restaurant and Catering in Kettering.

Plaques Presented
In Appreciation

On Tuesday, August 25, Pastor Phil and John Michael, Grace Council President, attended the West Carrollton City Council meeting.  At the meeting, they presented appreciation plaques to the Police Chief and Fire Chief of the City of West Carrollton.  Pastor Phil and John share with Grace members how well they were received, stating it was a great thing to do because of the tension in America right now. Thanks to all for the support that our congregation makes in the community.

Welcome to Miamisburg’s
Helping Hands Food Pantry
The West Carrollton Food Pantry is now closed indefinitely but we have another  place for our current and future

donations!  We are now working with Miamisburg’s Helping Hands Food Pantry located near the City Offices building.

They have picked up our current pantry donations and are happy to partnership with Grace for future donations too. They are in need of dry pasta and canned goods, more specifically, peas and carrots. Please bring donations to church.

This local Helping Hand Pantry serves the Miamisburg and Moraine areas and is also in need of volunteers to help distribute the food at the pantry.  If you are interested in volunteering, please call our contact, Barb, directly at (937)-866-9323 for information on how you can help.  Any questions about this new partnership with Miamisburg’s Food Pantry or any other Grace outreach program, please phone Diane at (937)-530-2573 or e-mail her at dmjergens11@gmail.com.

God bless our church and our generous church family!

Its all about Life-to-Life
We are to cultivate opportunities to teach others all that our Lord has commanded—to pass on the gospel witness of the apostles.  Do we have confidence that we can do it?  Jesus thought so, or He would not have gathered us together and put is here where we are.  He would not have called us as he has.
