VBS: August 16-19, 2021

It’s VBS season!! We will be offering a four  day morning only program. This is always such a wonderful week for the kids and volunteers alike. That said, we are in need of volunteers to make this a wonderful experience for all involved. We need group leaders, who travel with the kids station to station, station leaders and helpers and a music crew for opening and closing sessions. If you are interested in helping out or would like more information,  please contact
Debbie Contos or Debbie DeVries for more information.
 
Not only will the kids coming away be uplifted but so will you.

GRACE HOSPITALITY

What is Grace Hospitality? - Grace Hospitality is a meal provision service that seeks to provide quality meals for those in need. Partnering with our local Safeway and the baked goods donated to us, Grace Hospitality will plan, shop, and prepare frozen family sized meals which will be made available to those in need.
 
Who is ‘in need’? - Our Grace Hospitality meal service seeks to provide meal assistance for both our Grace Airdrie Church and local community members who may need a meal or two during:
- funerals
- new births or adoptions
- family emergencies
- extended periods of illness
- job loss
 
How could you get involved in Grace Hospitality?
- volunteer on a meal preparation team consisting of 3-4 members where you shop, prepare, and package frozen meals to be put into freezers. Expect to volunteer 2-4 times per calendar year.
- give specifically to this ministry to help cover food cost or to cover the cost of a large freezer
- prayerfully consider people within your circle of influence who you could specifically bless and encourage with a meal
