The core planning committee has met for the 1st time to prepare for a March 2017 Grace Church and School Auction. As soon as a date and venue are selected, we will expand the committee. Please begin to think how you could help with this important event. We will need many volunteers to serve on committees for soliciting items, publicity, data entry, and decorations. Watch for more news on this event and consider how you can help.
Tim Anas has received his first call into full-time ministry as a pastor to a Lutheran congregation in Buffalo, NY. Tim is a former Grace student and is a brother to 8th grader Steven Anas. We pray God's special blessing as Tim prepares to begin his new call to ministry.

Thank you Grace families for supporting the Uno's dining fundraiser in April. It was good to see so many Grace families in fellowship. The manager shared that we had a tremendous turn-out! He stated that either a lot of people love GLS or a lot of people love Uno's! To the contrary, we like to think a lot of people love GLS and Uno's!
