Please sign up for the following opportunities in the Narthex (the greeting area in front of the sanctuary)
Fall Clean Up Saturday, October 14th ~ 9:00 a.m. to approx. Noon
Please join us for our Fall Outdoor Cleanup Day. We will be weeding and preparing flower beds for winter, cleaning up and raking, putting away the benches in the outdoor chapel and any other tasks we find requiring attention.
All hands are welcome and needed. Consider gloves, hats, long pants and sunscreen.
SUPPLIES: leaf and straight rakes, long handled shovels, electric hedge trimmers, power cords and a couple of wheelbarrows. If anyone has some extra Round-Up to donate that would be helpful.
A sign-up can be found on the table in the Narthex. Come have some cider and help maintain
our beautiful grounds.
The American Red Cross Will be Holding a Blood Drive at Grace on Monday, Oct. 2nd In Fellowship Hall from Noon to 6:00 p.m.  For those donating, there is a RapidPass feature. Donors can save time by completing their predonation reading and healthy history questionnaire online, on their donation day, prior to arriving at the blood drive. Visit Pass.
A sign-up sheet may be found in the Narthex or you may sign-up on line. The many posters in the narthex provide the infor-mation needed for on-line sign-up. We need three volunteers who would be willing to work a two hour shift to help man the registration and snack table. Please contact the office if you are willing to help out (952-435-5696) or ( Thank you.
Grace Church supports EMMA NORTON SERVICES during the month of September through a paper products drive. There will be containers in the narthex todrop off your items. Always needed include: bathroom tissue, napkins, paper towels, facial tissue, garbage bags (all sizes), paper plates, cups, bowls and feminine hygiene products.
Emma Norton room remodel:  We will once again be doing a room remodel at Emma Norton Services.  Many of the supplies needed for this project have already been collected. At this time we need someone to help get curtains for the room. In the past they have been sewn, but they may be purchased too. Contact Nellie Mattis for measurements. Also needed is a bedspread for a twin bed.
Volunteers: Sept. 29th - Day One: we need two to three painters plus at least one or two helpers to clean, mask, etc.
Sept. 30th - Day Two: two finish painters and at least two people to install curtains and clean and setup room with bedding, etc.
Tom Marek will supply tools and equipment for drilling and sanding. Also there is very limited parking so we usually meet at church and carpool. Tom has room for three people.

A signup-sheet may be found on a table in the narthex. Any questions call Nellie Mattis at 952-923-9511
Race Volunteers
We have an opportunity to raise some funds for Grace UMC by showing up and offering a helping hand, volunteering to help with set up and race day activities for the Monster Dash Race on Oct. 27th and 28th. Time slots are listed on the sign-up sheet in the narthex.

Coffee and Treats Have Begun:  We are in need of baked items for the coffee hour between the two services. If you think this is something you can help with, a sign-up sheet is on the table in the Narthex. If you have any questions, call Lynn Kilian at 651-315-1647. Thank you very much.
