Men's Holiday Breakfast
The men of Grace invite you to join us for a special holiday breakfast on Saturday morning December 10th at 8:30 am in the Palmer Room.  Last year a large number of the men enjoyed a wonderful meal and fellowship at our second annual holiday breakfast.  We encourage you to attend as this will be our only Breakfast for the month of December. The breakfast starts at 8:30 am and ends at 10:00 am. Feel free to invite a friend or anyone you think may enjoy the food and fellowship. 

Cradle for the Christ Child
Thank you to everyone who has already helped fill a child's wish this Christmas season through the Cradle for the Christ Child. We still have a few names & wishes for adoption. If you would be willing to help one of these needy children in our community, please contact Meghan Zamborsky at or 202-361-6302 for more information.

Gifts are due back to the Palmer Room by this Sunday, December 4th. If you have selected a card but will be unable to return the gift by Sunday, please contact Meghan to make other arrangements.

We'll be sorting gifts beginning at 9 am on Wednesday, December 7th in the Palmer Room - please join us for a morning that is always filled with lots of Christmas spirit! All are welcome to assist.
