Grace Notes – Nov 9
A Note from the Pastor- In-Person Services Suspended
As the news tells us the number of positive virus cases is increasing again to a dangerous point. Out of an abundance of caution, Grace is suspending in-person worship with the hope of coming together for worship again in Advent. We will keep you informed via our website and other social media platforms.
The head of the NIH, Dr. Frances Collins, is suggesting we continue our diligence in wearing masks, social distancing, practicing good hygiene, and not meeting in group gatherings until the positivity rate, which for Kansas is now over 20%, until we get back to 10% or lower.
On-line worship will continue and we invite you to join us there. With prayers along with you, we seek God’s provision and grace!

Opportunity to help
Grace members have always been people who wanted to make the world a better place in a myriad of ways. One way that has been difficult to achieve in this time of pandemic craziness is giving to disaster relief. The Grace financial people have afforded us a way to give through our PushPay system. There have been so many hurricanes, fires, floods, and storms plus the pandemic, and the United Methodist way to help is through our United Methodist Committee on Relief. UMCOR works through church Conferences who are assisting local congregations with the things they need in their times of crisis. If you would like to help, please use the PushPay option on the church website to donate.
Your money will be sent to UMCOR where 100% of the money given will go to relief with no administrative costs. Your gift will make a difference to a family that is suffering.
Please Hold Your Donations
Your generosity and kindness has been overwhelming wonderful at the Center of Grace. So much so that we need time for our sorters to get caught up. At this time we will ONLY be accepting gently used or new coats of all sizes, hats, scarves, mittens and gloves to the Center of Grace. You may bring your donations on Mondays and Thursdays between the hours of 1 and 4 pm. If you have any questions please call us at the Center. 913-764-1353.
This year’s Living Nativity is moving to the Ridgeview Campus! We are so excited to once again be hosting an opportunity for families to celebrate the Christmas season in this unique and moving way. The Nativity will look a bit different this year – simpler, shorter, and safer in the face of covid – and we need your help to make it happen! From setup to scene creation, from costumes to acting, from hospitality to parking lot attendants – there are all kinds of roles for all kinds of people. The event will be Saturday, December 5 from 3-5pm, and help is needed preparing for the event and making it happen on that afternoon! If you would like to know more information about how you can help, you can sign-up here or reach out directly to Pastor Kyle – email@example.com. We so look forward to celebrating with you!
