This is pastor Rhee.
Below, you will find Christmas events and worship schedule at Grace during this month of December. There are lots of exciting ministries happening, along with some time changes. Tomorrow, Dec. 2nd, we will have both Contemporary service at 9:00 AM and Traditional service at 11:15 AM respectively. Thereafter, starting from Dec. 9th, we will have "ONE COMBINED" service at 10:30 AM throughout the end of the month. Bring your friends and family, share the good news of great joy, and enjoy this wonderful program. Also, as part of our Christmas tradition, the Missions Committee has designated the Christmas offering to the local food pantry. Let our spirit of generosity grow to receive the Christ child.
