Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Blue Christmas is a worship service which acknowledges that, for many people, Christmas is a time of loneliness, sorrow, alienation, sadness.
This service offers a way for people to claim those feelings and still feel surrounded by the compassionate love of God. It’s a service filled with music, scripture, prayers, and moments for quiet meditation.
You’re welcome to attend this Service of Hope:

Help us get ready for our annual Christmas Store! This year’s Christmas Store will be Saturday December 5th at Grace. The Christmas Store gives low income parents and grandparents an opportunity to purchase new toys at a greatly reduced price, with prices ranging from $1.00 to $10.00. This gives them dignity in being able to purchase toys for their families rather than just receiving a handout.
We are hoping to build our inventory early so it’s Christmas in July! Purchase a toy or book (or two or three…) while out shopping and bring it to the Grace Church office. Every toy you bring will be a blessing.
Another way to help us build our inventory is to be part of the “Toy of the Month Club.” Purchase a toy or book each month. If just 10 people did this we’d have 120 more toys each year! (No electronics, videos or guns, please!)

Celebrating the Jobs for Life Spring 2015 Graduating Class!
After more than 9 weeks of classes,
these students we challenged, encouraged, equipped, and empowered
to compete successfully in the job market — even in a tough economy.
Nearly 200 people gathered to celebrate and support the ministries of Grace For Dover. The annual banquet was held March 27, 2015, at the Modern Maturity Center. It provided an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful meal, warm fellowship, and a challenging overview of “Grace at Work”. It was inspiring! Presentations described the ministries of Jobs For Life, Faith and Finances, Wellspring, Embrace, Ramo de Gracia, and The Christmas Store . What a joy and blessing to learn of this great kingdom work!

The unemployed, underemployed and those who are discouraged in looking for work are in need of community, competence and confidence to gain the job they need. You can help! Often the words spoken, the understanding ear, the prayers of an ally can equip and encourage the weary job seeker to persevere.
Jobs For Life class #11 begins March 10 with Student Orientation. Then on March 12 is Training for Champions. Are you willing to help someone gain employment?
See Kenny Foster or Laura Henry about helping the unemployed through Jobs For Life.
