Grace Organization

 

All activities of Grace are included in the following new committees. These two committees would shape, plan, and oversee most of the functioning of the congregation.

 

Evangelism is “outreaching” in its overall focus and would involve four teams of people: Worship, LYF, Ministries, and Growth.

 

Stewardship seeks to care for the congregation’s assets and people with these four teams:  Building/Grounds, Giving, Membership, and Administration.

AmazonSmile

Earn money for Grace

What is AmazonSmile? AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection, and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile? To shop at AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.com from the Web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account? Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding, or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile? On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate? The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the items minus any rebates and excluding shipping and handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, Amazon may offer special, limited-time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply.

Facilities Use and Communications

In an effort to streamline the various communication processes at Grace and in the community, the Stewardship/Administration team has created a procedure that we think will be more effective and produce results that will be beneficial to everyone involved. Beginning July 1, 2016, all communication requests should go to Alissa Olson only.

Communication Requests. This consists of announcements in the bulletin, articles in the GLOW newsletter, etc. A new form has been created for this process. The form allows you to choose where you want your announcement to appear (newsletter, Web site, Facebook, etc.) and when it should appear. The form also has a place where you can handwrite your announcement, but you have other options—attach a printed page to the form, send the announcement by e-mail, etc.

Facility Use. The church maintains a facility use calendar. At this point, we would like to start with a clean slate. If you had something that was previously on the calendar, we are asking that you please complete a revised Facility Use Application form and submit the request again. This will help with addressing the liability issues, as well as updating the calendar and the contact information should a question arise.

The forms can be accessed from the Forms link on the navigation bar to the left of this announcement so they can be printed for submission. Copies are also in a bin on the wall located next to Alissa’s office door.

All completed forms can be placed into the mailbox located next to Alissa’s office door, or she can be reached via:

Office phone:  920-836-2382

Cell phone:  920-277-7619

Email:  glcwin@gmail.com

Alissa will put the request into effect or coordinate with the appropriate people to have the request carried out.

If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please contact anyone on the Administration team: Rich Terio, Debbie Groff, Ellen Schneider, Ruth Ann Wisnefske, Mel Mathison, Cindy Krause, or Jean Thyssen.

Christmas Decorating Event

Plan to come to the Christmas Decorating event on Saturday, December 2, from 1:00-4:00 with refreshments afterwards. To help ensure we have a festive sanctuary and church building for the Christmas season, we need your assistance.

If you have questions, please contact any of the following members of the Christmas Decorating team: Morgan Zeinert, Camey Hall, or Holly Wisnefske

Ruth’s Pantry Holiday Meals

A donation of $30 will provide a holiday meal for a family who depends on the help of Ruth’s Pantry to put food on the table. Please consider donating $30 or more for holiday meals for Pantry guests.

Parents’ Night Out

Parents: Make plans for a Parents’ Night Out on Friday, December 8. Bring your children at 6 p.m. to practice for the December 10 Christmas Program and enjoy a night without the children while they are entertained and play games at Grace.

OWLS. Come at 11:00 a.m. on December 14 for a special OWLS Christmas event with members of the McGinnis family providing “entertainment.”
