THANK YOU - DIANE

 
Sunday we recognized the many years of service Diane Strehan has given this church and wished her a much deserved retirement.   We can't say enough for all you have done to keep us going but hope you have a great vacation and come back to us rested and ready for many hugs.

 
From Diane - 
What a wonderful family I have at Grace! Thank you for your kind words, hugs, and cake ( diane likes cake) last Sunday. You were all so very good at keeping it a secret too.
Our secretary is dependent upon all of the members providing her with the information she records. Our new secretary, Courtney, will rely on each of you to assist her and keep her in your prayers for a little while. Please stop in and introduce yourself, encouraging her as she becomes familiar with all of us at GLC.
Many thanks, and love, YSIC, Diane

Welcome Our New Church Secretary

 
We are pleased to announced that our search for a person to try to fill Diane Strehan's shoes as church secretary is completed.  After interviewing five applicants, and seeking God's guidance through prayer about which person was best suited for the position, the interview team consisting of Diane, Pr. Jones and Harold Gracey reached unanimous agreement on the selection of Courtney Quillin currently of of Wanchese, who until recently worked in the beach area for Pilot Media Companies.  She is a great people person, with office skills and a great sense of organization, who volunteers with a number of community organizations.  Office hours: 9-2 Monday - Thursday

Update on Voter's Assembly

 
1- Women as Communion Assistants

 
During the recent Voters Assembly Meeting an affirmative vote was passed to include Women in Service as Communion Assistants. Several individuals indicated their desire to serve in this role however we wanted to ensure those not present (women or men) have the same opportunity. If you are interested please respond to John Gerke at jwgerke@charter.net by December 29. Training sessions will be scheduled in January and will be conducted by Pastor Jones and the Elders for current and prospective assistants. Thank you for your service!
2- Corrections to the Treasurer's Report

 
Corrections brought forward at the Voter's Assembly to the handout of the Treasurer's Report have been made and a "revised" Budget versus Actual has been posted downstairs.  If there are any questions, please contact Randy Grimes.

 
Men's Breakfast Nov/Dec  - Cancelled

 
It was decided by all of us that because so many of us will be out of town for Thanksgiving and throughout December, we would just cancel the two Men's Breakfasts.  Next breakfast is back on track for January 20th.  See you then.  Thanks to all that make this a great time for us all. Warren McCulley & Timmy Thompson

Lunch Tuesday November 21  - Cancelled

 
REMINDER:  There will be NO LUNCHEON next week (Nov. 21st) at Barefoot Bernie's.  It was decided by all of us that because so many of us will be out of town for Thanksgiving, we would just cancel that luncheon.
 
Instead, these are the dates for the following 2 remaining luncheons:  TUESDAY, DEC. 5TH, NOON, THE SALTBOX.  AT THAT TIME WE WILL DECIDE ON FUTURE LUNCHEONS IN 2018.  THE FINAL 2017 LUNCHEON WILL BE ON TUESDAY, DEC. 19TH, AT NOON AT THE BLACK PELICAN.

OUTREACH COMMITTEE 
CHRISTMAS 2017 PROJECT
 
This year the Outreach Committee has decided to help our family and friends in Ocracoke during the Christmas season by donating food to the food pantry in Ocracoke.  We have been in contact with Pastor Ivey Belch of the Assembly of God church in Ocracoke and he said that the food pantry is very low due to the great need of the citizens of Ocracoke because of the recent hurricanes and power outage.  ANY non-perishable food is needed
 
Please bring in any canned goods or non-perishable food items for donation beginning Sunday, November 19th and ending on Sunday, December 10th.  These items will then be delivered to Pastor Belch. You can leave them on the table at the back of the church.
 
If you would rather donate money to the food pantry, please mark on your check "Ocracoke Food Pantry" and the money will be delivered to Pastor Belch.
Thank you for your generous donations.
 
Cher Funaiock
Outreach Chairperson.
 

 

Sunday November 26th - Make Plans Now
DECORATE CHURCH

I know I can't believe it either but it's that time again to start decorating for Christmas.  Please come to help us right after the service ends on Sunday, Nov 26th to turn our sanctuary from Fall to Christmas.
 

Upcoming Silence Prayer - 
Sunday November 19
 
"Dealing with Impatient"
Here are some prayer thoughts                   
1) Help the impatient discuss their impatience with God and His servants.   
2) Help the impatient focus on God not what they want.   .
3) Allow your servant to hear the impatient concerns and pray for them.
