LIKE TO BE OUTSIDE? HAVE A GREEN THUMB? WILLING AND ABLE?
We are in need of people willing to mow our property and be involved in general upkeep. Our God-given Grace grounds are in need of love. Please consider volunteering to clean up the grounds and maintain our landscaped areas. Many hands make light work! Interested in being on our mowing team? Contact Peggy at peggy@gracefortmill.org. Interested in helping get our grounds back to their formal glory? Contact Peggy at peggy@gracefortmill.org.
Any questions or suggestions contact our grounds team; Jason Wolfman, Ryan Lentini, and Cole Kessell.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
DOOR GREETERS
We are looking for volunteers (men and women) to greet people and open the church doors on Sunday mornings. This is a commitment of less than 30 minutes each week and is one of easiest ways to serve the church. If you can open a door and say hello at the same time, we want you!
Grace Door Men: Grace Door Men (signupgenius.com)
This opportunity is open to men and women age 16 and older. Please consider volunteering and helping promote what we all know: Grace is a friendly church open to all.
Thank you!

12 ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL CAMPING RETREAT - JULY 29-31
Here it is, one of Grace’s best events: our annual congregational camping retreat. We’ll hit the Crescent group campground on the shores of Lake Hartwell for an unbelievable weekend of fun, food, and fellowship! Some people bring their camper, RV, or tent. Some rent a camper, while others stay at a local hotel. Whatever your choice, you won’t want to miss this weekend as we have a peninsula to ourselves. You’ll have the option to come a day early again this year.

NAMETAGS
Please remember to wear your nametags on Sunday mornings. We have had quite a few guests attending worship, so it's helpful if we are wearing our nametags. Also, with everyone wearing masks, it's sometimes hard to remember who's under there! If you are missing your name tag, let Peggy know.

SOFT PLASTIC RECYCLING
Great job on continuing your collections! We just received the second bench that we are donating to the Historic Paradise Foundation. Have you ever wondered where the plastic goes after we collect it? In the following 2 videos are your answers.

HUG ME DOLLS
Do you know someone who needs a hug? Melissa  has been making some hug-me dolls and is ready to make some more. They come in a wide variety, with each one just waiting to be hugged. They are $10 with all proceeds going to Grace's partner congregation in Iraq and its school for Christian and Muslim students.

WE NEED A "LITTLE" HELP!
Infants through 2 year olds are in Room 8, and 3 year olds through 5k will be in Room 9. Because we are in two rooms we need more volunteers. Please check your schedule and consider helping with our kiddos during worship. Sign up links are below. Thank you!
