Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you.
'You shall rise up before the grayheaded and honor the aged, and you shall revere your God; I am the LORD.
1 Timothy 5:1-2
Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but rather appeal to him as a father, to the younger men as brothers, the older women as mothers, and the younger women as sisters, in all purity.
1 Peter 5:5
You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one an-other, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.

Mission & Outreach at Grace
Grace UCC Volunteers Needed
for Emergency Family Shelter hosted by Grace
August 11th through August 18th
As always, we are looking for individuals to partner with us in providing a safe place for homeless families. In addition to our usual evening volunteers, we are in need of one or two individuals who would be willing to assist Carol Garrison in opening the church for our families and volunteers. Unlocking doors, being available to welcome families as they arrive, assisting the volunteers to set-up, and locking up after everyone is settled in. This would be from about 5:30 to 7:00 in the evening. All volunteers must be vetted and trained, so if you have not yet signed up, please see Carol Garrison or Sarah Travis for information. If you have already been through the training process, get yourself on the schedule. She will be happy to walk-through the process with you. We are next hosting the Emergency Family Shelter August 11th through August 18th
and again November 10th through 17th. Thank you!
For Emergency Human Needs
Grace UCC Collects Basic Household Items
for Emergency Family Shelter
Grace has an opportunity to support the RCEHNs Emergency Family Shelter in a new
way. Like all households (and RCEHN does have a home base just off Bentz St. where meals are fixed; belongings are stored; clothes are washed and instruction is given) there are continuing needs for the little things (paper towels, detergent, bath soap, etc.). Wed like to collect these items in July and deliver them in August (our next hospitality month).
There will be a cutout house on an easel near the sanctuary with a large basket underneath and small tags within the house with needs items, such as: 2 rolls paper towels; 8 oz. soft scrub, etc. You may take a tag, purchase the item(s), and then bring the items back and place in the basket for collection. Contact Carol Garrison for more info. Or visit https://www.therel
