What are you doing with your 167 Hours?
This year’s end-of-year-giving focus is called “167 Hours”. In years past, we’ve used designated offering envelopes and focused on an end-of-year offering day. This year, we are encouraging everyone to give at any time between now and December 31st. If you give online, choose the “167 Hours” option; if you give by check, simply write “167 Hours” in the memo section; if you’d prefer cash, you can put it in any envelope with your name, contact info, and “167 Hours” clearly written. For more about how God has used your generosity in 2017, check out our new Annual Impact Report.
Christmas for Kids
Please return tags along with the unwrapped gift, to the Christmas tree in the lobby by December 17th.
Join us Sunday night, December 10th, at 5pm, for Communion, worship, and a message from Pastor Tra. Bring your favorite cookies to share following the service. We will be having cocoa, coffee, and cookies! GraceKidsJr available for this service.
Star Wars Movie Night
Saturday night, December 16th, at 4:30pm, we will be showing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Come in your best Star Wars costumes and enjoy an evening together. Following the showing, you can head over to Showtime Cinema to watch the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Christmas Eve Services
Come enjoy a special Christmas Eve Service for the entire family! All Grace campuses will be holding Christmas Eve services onsite. The Newburgh Campus will offer services on Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24th, at 8:30am, 10:00am, 11:30am, and 1:30pm. GraceKidsJr will be offered at all services. There will be no NextGen or GraceKids (K-5th). To help us plan to best serve you and your family, please click here to RSVP. (This does not obligate you to that service, nor does it guarantee your seat. It is a tool to help us best plan for the day!)
Serve the Eve
Christmas Eve is a great way to discover serving! If you would like to help out on Christmas Eve during one of the services, please email Volunteer.NBG@graceoc.com to get plugged in. Better yet, stop by the Volunteer Desk this weekend!
NFA Basketball Team Meals
We have the joy of serving a hot meal to the Newburgh Free Academy (NFA) Boys’ Basketball Team again this year. We are looking for teams of 4-5 people to serve the boys during their home NFA games (4-7pm). There are nine home games this year between December and February. Sign up at the Info Center today!
Before you head out, be sure to check that Grace is open! Campus events during the week will generally follow the Newburgh Enlarged City School District closings. If they are closed, we are most likely closed. Check the graceoc.com website, social media, or you can get instant notifications from the “Graceoc” App. Through the app, you will receive notification for service cancellations. Make sure to check the app’s SETTINGS section to select which campus notifications you would like to receive. You can download the app from the playstore, itunes, as well as for windows.
