"Why do I enjoy the ministry of Manna? Our Lord has told us to serve others numerous places in the Bible. Ephesians 6:7 says 'Serve wholeheartedly as if you were serving the Lord, not men.' It is also a good time of fellowship with others that are serving and with the clients too!"
This is Dianne Ketterer! She has been volunteering with Manna for several years! We love Dianne's heart for serving and are very thankful for the selfless years she's dedicated to Manna.
If you also feel a call to serve, Manna is happening THIS SATURDAY. There are two opportunities this weekend to help with Manna:
Friday, 6:30 P.M. - set up
Saturday, 8:30 A.M. - distribution
We invite you to come and help out! Bring a friend!
"I enjoy volunteering my time to VBS because it is so much fun to watch how excited the children are to be there. I love knowing that they are having fun and learning about Jesus, all at the same time. I also enjoy the relationships you develop with the children over the course of the week. It's great to watch a room full of children excited about Jesus!"
This summer VBS will be June 19th-23th. It will be a week of music, laughter, moving around, and learning! Our kids are going to learn how we are all uniquely wired and wonderfully made for a purpose - to help, to love, and to shine!
Thank you Tracy Shoemaker for all your help and smiles you brought to the VBS team last summer! We are already counting down the days until this year's VBS!
"I really enjoy attending because I love knowing I'm a part of a growing church ministry. I get to observe the growth and development of the individuals and look back at the beginning of the vision. God's done so many great things since, and I'm so excited to see where we'll be in a year, two years, and even long after I graduate."
Vaughn Atkinson is a part of Grace Church's college ministry. Grace College meets on Tuesdays at 6:30PM. It begins with worship led by college students. Then, Family Pastor, Paul Mannino will open up the Bible and talk through its implications for our everyday faith. Post-message, there are "breakout groups," designed to allow people to process what they've just heard. This is a great, getting-to-know-the-Bible and getting-to-know-each-other environment.
We are excited to see the college students getting back into the swing of things!
