GraceKids Fall-O-Ween Party
Calling all Grace Kids! Come on out on October 31, immediately following the second service for a Fall-O-Ween Party! Bring a potluck style lunch item, dress your kiddos in NON-scary themed costumes, and enjoy some fun! Oh, and bring a candy gathering container too!
***NEEDED: Candy donations!*** Please drop off in the office at church!
Trunk-or-Treat will be hosted by our Washingtonville campus on October 31st from 5pm to 7pm, with a rain date of November 1st from 6pm to 8pm. This event is open to the community and we expect to have a huge turnout as we have in the past! To ensure things run smoothly, please register that you are joining us that evening by signing up one adult in the family and indicating how many in your group: graceoc.com/events
What we need:
We need our Grace family to decorate your trunk! Think of a fun (non-scary) theme, decorate your vehicle, and hand out candy to the “trunk or treaters” from the neighborhood! Once you run out of candy to give, we will re-fill your trunk until the event is over! You’ll be entered in a contest too!! Register your vehicle at graceoc.com/trunks
We also need our Grace family to donate candy! Everyone knows our Trunk or Treat has the best candy, and LOTS of it is needed. If you can help by filling up the trunk in the lobby of our Washingtonville Campus – this will help make Trunk-or-Treat a success!

Learning to Lament mini conference
Learning to Lament with Elder Larry Dauer. We all need to learn to lament, especially when we find ourselves, perhaps even right now, in the midst of the deep dark clouds of suffering, pain, loss, and even despair. Lament is a prayer in pain that leads to trust. Biblical Lament is how Christians grieve. It is also how to help hurting people. Join us and invite others as together we Learn to Lament for His glory and our joy! Saturday, November 6th, 8:15 to 12:30p, Newburgh Worship Center.

This will be so fun to create something beautiful either for yourself or to give as a gift! Bagels and beverages as well! There is a small cost of $5 to cover the materials. If this is a hardship, please don’t let that deter you from coming. We got you!
