Shopping With Joy For Missions

Every Week, Grace Church members donate basic items in “Yellow Bags.” The Mission Ministry Team then distributes those items to the Kokomo Rescue Mission, Kokomo Urban Outreach and CAM. The current items needed for each local organization are:

Thanksgiving Day Dinner

Our church will again coordinate with the Kokomo Rescue Mission for the Thanksgiving Day Dinner on November 26 from 11:30-1 PM! Last year we served about 550 meals at Grace Church. The Kokomo Rescue Mission is currently experiencing a 25% increase in meals served on a daily basis, so they have asked us to plan for about 700 people on Thanksgiving Day. It always takes so many Grace members to donate desserts and salads, but this year with the increased need in Kokomo, please consider donating in a bit more than you might have in the past years. We also appreciate Grace members who can come help set up, decorate, serve dinners and drinks or clean up. Please consider giving of your time to donate food or your service to this wonderful mission.

We have such an opportunity to reach out to those in need of food or just a place to celebrate the holiday. Please look for Thanksgiving Day Dinner volunteer and donation form in the Sunday bulletins. If you prefer, you may call Susan or Tim Garner, 453-1819 or e-mail skgarner@comcast.net to donate desserts, salads or your time. Food may be brought to the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday, November 25 from 12-4 or as early as 8:30 AM on November 26.

If you wish to deliver meals, you must call Kelly Werdall at The Kokomo Rescue Mission to get on her driver’s list.

Walk A Mile In My Shoes

The next "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" is on February 13, 2010. Last year, Grace Church members donated a little over $2200 to Open Arms. Every year we have several walkers who brave the cold and enjoy the walk. We learned about Open Arms facility and their ministry to women who need residence and care. Please talk to Susan Garner about joining the “Graceful Walkers” or about donating money to this worthy cause.
