BLOOD DRIVE
October 11 | 2:00PM-7:00PM | Heart of the City | Contact: Lauren Pickthorn
With the current and very recent natural disasters in our country, donating blood is a simple way to assist. It is a tangible way to help those who literally cannot help them themselves. If you would like to donate blood, visit redcrossblood.org and search using sponsor code “heart of the city” to register. If you have any questions, contact Lauren.

October 12 | 7:00PM-9:00PM | Contact: Jordan Lutz
Men are called to lead. Over 4 weeks this study will equip and empower you to lead in your work, family and church. Hear from various speakers on topics of leadership, engage in conversation around tables to help further understand where you can grow as a leader.

DREAM SUNDAY
October 22 | 9:00AM & 11:00AM | Contact: GC Office
You are invited into the incredible story God is writing in Rwanda. We have the opportunity to have the president and founder of Africa New Life, Dr. Charles Mugisha Buregeya, at Grace Chapel, to preach and encourage us to get involved in a personal way in Rwanda. Africa New Life exists to transform lives and communities through preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and acts of compassion. One of the main focuses of Dream Sunday will be to encourage people to sponsor children. This $39 per month commitment will truly transform a child’s life forever. Focusing on child sponsorship means far more than simply putting a child through school. Make sure to not miss Dream Sunday!!

TASTE OF GRACE
October 22 | 9:15AM | Contact: GC Office
We are hosting a Taste of Grace in our office and we’d love for you to come. It’s a casual time where we enjoy some yummy treats, hear a bit of the “Grace Story” from our Lead Pastor Mike, and look at the opportunities, ministries and programs that can be found at Grace Chapel. Kidventure is available for infants through 5th grade. Please email us to reserve your space!

AN EVENING WITH MARK GREGSTON
October 22 | 5:00PM-8:00PM | Contact: GC Office
Parents across the country all have something in common—at some point, they’ll be the parent of a teen. And when they are, it’s best to have an approach to combat the culture that constantly pushes and pulls at their children. Whether that phase is coming, or if it has already arrived, join Mark Gregston for a free seminar filled with wit, stories, and wisdom—with a focus on what teens really need from their parents as well as practical advice between teaching and training when it comes to raising kids.
