Daylight Saving Ends - 2:00 am on Sunday November 4
Remember to set your clocks back 1 hour this Saturday evening so you get to worship on time this Sunday!

Pray with us? - Sunday, November 4
All who are interested are welcome to pray with the Growth and Outreach Team for the Rise Against Hunger event in Muyskens Hall directly after the 10:30 Worship service.  We would like to join together and ask God to bless the event, the volunteers and the 200 people who will walk through our building together.  It will take 10-15 minutes.  

Rise Against Hunger Event Parking - Sunday, November 4
We will need all the parking we can get for this great event happening at Grace!   Additional parking is available in the Rydal Road Parking Garage and in the (Helweg) lot across the street from the Chelsea for this special event at Grace.  All Grace regulars without the need to park close to the building should plan to park in these lots or on available neighborhood streets.  Carpooling is encouraged!
