Grace Nursery School
Nursery school classes are now open for 2016-2017. Parents are encouraged to visit the school in session before enrolling a child. Please contact Jill Quinto at jillquinto@verizon.net to make arrangements to visit and to request an application. You may visit our Nursery School page for more information.

Summer Blood Drive
Save the Date - Summer Red Cross Blood Drive at Grace Church will be held on Monday, May 23.  This is a different date than the usual first Monday in June for our Drive, which we hope will avoid conflicts with other local blood drives.  Remember that potential donors cannot have made a blood donation after March 27 in order to be eligible for our drive.  Sign up schedules will be available by late April.

Contribution Statements
First quarter offering statements have been sent out.  If you do not currently receive giving statements by email and would like to, please contact the financial secretary at thinks@gracejenkintown.org, and provide the email address (for joint contributors, you can submit one or two email addresses) you would like statements sent to going forward. 

Ways to Give
Many contributors find it convenient to process payments to Grace through online bill pay service with their bank. For your convenience, Grace also accepts online gifts by credit/debit cards directly on our website.  To donate now through our website, or learn about other ways to give to Grace, visit the Generosity page our website.

Wellspring’s Saturday Breakfast Ministry
Volunteers needed on Saturday, May 7th, and on the first Saturday of each month.  Be part of the small group from Grace that prepares-serves breakfast, and distributes clothing and toiletries for up to 80 needy guests . This shelter ministry at Old First UCC in Philadelphia supports hunger relief efforts by providing a place for guests to enjoy a hot breakfast and fellowship.  Guests are also offered the opportunity to select donated clothing, snacks and toiletries from the clothing cupboard each Saturday.
To join the group  (volunteers must be 14 yrs or older.), add your name to the sign-up sheet located on the bulletin board across from the church office.   Meet at Grace and leave by 7:45 am to return by noon.  For more information, please call the church office at 215-887-6117.
