Fellowship/Discipleship

Grace Connections 

Consider joining us after service as we desire to continue to build fellowship.  To see others, you will need a computer or smartphone or tablet that has a working camera on it.  You do need to register here, and you will receive an email with the information to join in.  


If you would like to call in and take part by hearing others and conversing with us, there will be instructions for that on the same email as well.


Service/Discipleship

Grace Helps Schools 

In the Spring we had such a great response from you to the Grace Helps initiative, and we’re so pleased that the Lord has also led us to be able to partner with these local schools—Eastview Public School, Joseph Brant Public School, Mason Road Junior Public School, St. Margaret's Public School, and West Hill Public School—in order to help families in need.

THE OPPORTUNITY--Please purchase Wal-Mart gift cards that equal up to $100. Our immediate objective is 40 gifts equalling $100.00 each. For example, a family or individual from Grace could purchase four-$25 gift cards, or two-$50 gifts cards, etc.  All cards received will be distributed equally to families from each of these schools. If you are unable to commit to gift cards equalling $100, please give whatever you can—everything will help and is appreciated.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE? 

1) Email Dan Nortes (dannortesgracechurch@gmail.com) to say you will participate in GRACE HELPS SCHOOLS.  Please also inform him when you anticipate buying the cards

2) Next time you are shopping at Walmart, purchase these gift cards that equal up $100 (again, this is a suggestion, and all gift cards are welcome!)

3) Email Dan when you have the gift card

HOW YOUR GIFT CARD WILL BE RECEIVED & GIVEN

1) Drop it off in Dan’s mailbox (19 Logstone Crescent) in an envelope with your name on it

2) Dan is also open to coming to your home and collecting your gift card in an envelope with your name on it

3) Set a time to meet Dan at the church parking lot at an agreed date/time to provide him with the gift card

Please prayerfully consider your involvement in serving and loving our neighbours.

 

Help Serve in the Sound Booth

If you have wanted to jump in to serve but enjoy doing more background work, this could be a great fit for you!  As the church reopens, we need help in the sound booth managing the PowerPoint slides (i.e. progressing the slides as the service goes on), along with learning the ropes of supporting the worship ministries in using the sound booth.  Please get in contact with us at office@gracewesthill.ca.


Outreach

Alpha Online

Please consider and pray for who you would like to invite to our next Alpha Online, which will start in February 2021!

If you would like to get involved, get in contact with Pastor Alvin.
