GCC Foundation
Grace City Foundations will be meeting for its final session this coming Sunday at 6:30pm downstairs at the Ashton Rd. building. The current course is covering what it means when we say we are reformed at Grace City.

Turning Points
Turning Points for Children is the agency that identifies and equips the foster care families in our section of Northeast Philadelphia. Grace City Church and Turning Points for Children are beginning to work together in various ways and we are excited to see what God will do as our relationship with them grows. One of the ways that Turning Points has asked us to help them serve the foster families that they work with in our neighborhoods is by us donating certain items that they can give to families as needed. A list of requested items is available here and at the Information & Resource table in the hallway on Sundays. We will be collecting the donations next to the Information Table for the first four Sundays in November. For more information about donations or to learn more about Turning Points, please contact Aaron Gannon at gannon.aaron@gmail.com.

Soup & Salad
Ladies, you are invited to the annual Fall Soup & Salad Night that is being held on Thursday night November 20th at 6:30pm at the Ashton Rd. building. Please sign up online here or on an upcoming Sunday if you plan on attending. There are also signup sheets available on Sundays if you are interested in bringing a soup, bread, salad or dessert for the event.

Prayer Breakfast
Guys, you are invited to the Men’s Prayer Breakfast that is being held on Saturday November 22nd at 9:00am at the Ashton Rd. building. Please sign up online here or on an upcoming Sunday if you plan on attending.
