ANNOUNCEMENTS: Week of December 3rd

BREAKTHROUGH PRAYER
December 3 | 8:40AM & 10:40AM | Contact: Building Team
The staff, elders and building team will now meet twice on Sundays to continue to petition God for His provision. We have seen some answers and we would like to challenge you to continue to pray until we receive God’s answer! We’d love you to join us (for either or both) as we seek God together.

HEART OF THE CITY – SHARE THE WARMTH
December 3 & 10 | Contact: Lauren
Winter is coming and the weather is cold and will get colder. For those trying to survive on the streets or in cars, proper clothing is vital. As a part of our community outreach program here at Heart of the City and with your help, we will take all collected donations and distribute them among our homeless friends in the community. We will be collecting stocking hats or hats that cover ears, scarves, coats, socks, boots, gloves, blankets, and sleeping bags. All new or gently used.

HONORED LADIES
December 10 | 12:30PM-3:00PM | Contact: Rita Manzella
If you are in the 50-ish age range and over, desire the fellowship of other women, and want to share in outreach experiences, please join us for our monthly luncheon held on the second Sunday of the month after the second service. We will be at Vi Bosner’s: 6212 SW Prosperity Park Road in Tualatin.  Please  contact Rita at 971-832-4071 or Vi at 503-577-5951 if you have any questions.

ARDENT JH CHRISTMAS PARTY
December 15 | 7:00PM-9:00PM | Contact: Emma
Join us for our 2nd annual Christmas Party! December 15 at Grace Chapel from 7-9pm come celebrate the best holiday of the year! Make sure to wear your ugliest Christmas sweater, eat as many cookies as you possibly can, win some prizes, and have a jolly time! Bring your friends!

LIVING WATER OFFERING
December 17 & 24 | Contact: justice@gracechapelonline.org
This year, we are excited to help build water wells around the world that will provide clean, safe water. We will be taking a special offering (above the tithe) where all proceeds will go to Living Water International (water.cc). LWI exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience “living water”—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICES
December 24 | 9:00AM & 11:15AM | Contact: Grace Chapel
We hope that you will visit us at one of our Christmas Eve Services and discover the joy that comes in the true meaning of Christmas. This year we will have two services; 9AM and 11:15AM. There will be care in our children’s area for Infants thru 5th grade at each service.

ARDENT SH GAME NIGHT
December 29 | 6:00PM | Contact: Austin
Enjoy some time with friends over the holidays and come play some classic board games! This will be a very laid back event (unless you are playing risk) to connect over the Christmas break and rest.
