Scripture verses are: Luke 3:1-18; 21-22 and Matthew 3:13-17.

3rd and 5th Grade Teachers and Guides Needed for 1/21 at 9am!

Each week we need volunteers as teachers and guides to provide a lesson and safety for your kids in church. This Sunday (1/21) we are in need of guides and teachers for 3rd grade and 5th grade. Volunteering is fun and easy and shows your kids that you value the faith learning they experience in Graceland. I provide everything you’ll need for a successful lesson and guide experience. Please click on the link below if you’re willing to help and we can talk details. Thank you!!


 Moment for Mission and Bible Books and Games this Week!

Last week we created this beautiful mural for a family in our congregation who just lost a loved one. I rolled it up with a beautiful silk ribbon and a loaf of fresh bread and brought it to their home from our group. It feels good to walk alongside our church families in their sorrow.
This week we’ll continue serving others in need by making “care kits” for those who are homeless. If you’ve been in class for awhile you’ve probably made these with us. Keep this kit in your car and hand out to someone at the side of the road or wherever you may encounter a need. I’m encouraging your kids to share their experience of delivering these care kits with our group afterward. Join us each week as we are the hands and feet of Jesus:
K-2nd-5:00-5:30 p.m. (Care of You and =Art room)
3rd-5th-5:30-6:00 p.m.  (Care of You and Art room)

K-5th grade-Bible Books and Game, 7:15-8:30 p.m.

Tell Me about the Bible: Throughout the month of January we’ll discover the names of the books of the Bible and play games to help us memorize the old testament books then the New Testament books! We always save time for sharing at the beginning of class and end with a snack and free play in the gym. Join in whenever it works out for your kids!

Blankets, Mittens, Scarves Hats Needed
Throughout the month of January we will be collecting these items to deliver to those in need at the Salvation Army in downtown Minneapolis. Kids can understand the need for warmth in the cold winter months. Join in on this mission project and donate any gently used or new items to the bins at the east and west entrances all month!

Save the date for Mission in Motion and join us for hands-on service projects! February 14, 4-6pm (Ages 3-adult)

This year the day we celebrate love, February 14th is also a day to show love to our neighbors near and far! Join us in the gym for our annual hands on service and mission fair at WCC.  We’ll make sandwiches for the homeless, fill bags of laundry soap for those in need, make dog and cat toys for the dog shelter and so much more. Representatives from many organizations will be here also to tell you more about their non-profit and to encourage your family to continue volunteering. No cost for this event, bring your friends!
