We are excited to announce that we will be having our Trunk-or-Treat event on October 31st from 5pm to 7pm, with a raindate of November 1st from 6pm to 8pm, here at the Washingtonville Campus. 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 register your trunk! Think of a fun (non-scary) theme, decorate your vehicle, and hand out candy to the “trunk or treaters” from the neigborhood! 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 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.
