Outdoor Worship at Grace

Sunday, October 21, 2018
Breakfast—8:30 am
Worship Service—9:00 am

This will be a casual worship service. Some folding chairs will be available, but you are encouraged to bring your own lawn chair. Childcare will be available.

This is a great way for Grace to be seen in our community. We hope that locals will stop by and worship with us.

Sunday School classes and the 11 am worship service will take place in the building as usual on that day.


Grace UMC Annual Fall Festival 

Saturday, October 27, 6-8 pm
Everyone is Invited!

The Grace Family Council will provide a main stage in the Grace parking lot for the Wilmington, kid-friendly band, The Broccoli Brothers. They dress as vegetables and sing rock songs with the lyrics changed to reflect positive habits for children.

This year, each game booth will feature different ministries of Grace and local non-profits that benefit families.

If you are a part of a specific ministry at Grace and want to participate, please contact Kelley Ahlers ( or Melissa Cline ( to coordinate a booth.

Trunk or Treat will be in the back parking lot. Grace members are needed to decorate their trunks. In case of
rain you will be assigned a door to decorate in the church. Trunks need to be set up by 5:30. There is a sign-up sheet on the Sign-Up Board in the Welcome Center.
