Advent Fair - During the early years of 2000 til now, Grace has been hosting a craft event and dinner during the Advent season as a creative way to actively prepare for the birth of Christ and to reach out to the community to spread The Good News of "God with Us". This inter-generational evangelism fair has been a blessing to all who have attended, as adults and children work side-by-side creating beautiful ornaments and gifts in preparation for Christmas.
Women's Cookie Exchange/Advent Program - In more recent years, Grace has hosted a dinner to gather the women of Grace and their friends together for a meal and program that contemplates the special symbols, carols, colors and themes of Advent and Christmas. At the conclusion of the program, cookies are boxed for designated families and then exchanged by all in attendance. It has always been a special time to stop and ponder... just as Mary did when she received the news that she would bear the Christ child.
In the book of Jeremiah – God says, “I know the plans I have for you. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” God has a plan for each one of us. God has a plan for Grace Lutheran Church. The plans God has for us are ‘for good and not for evil’. The plans God has for us all will result in our doing and achieving goals that we might otherwise be hesitant to strive for.
