Coats For Kids

logo Coats for Kids

As many of you know, Coats for Kids puts out boxes in the fall to collect good used coats that we can distribute to needy families throughout the county. They are usually out for about six weeks; however we receive calls all year round asking where are the boxes and where can we drop off coats. Sometimes Tony goes down to the building to meet them or they drop off coats at Grace, but now,

thanks to Jim S., we have a solution.

 

Jim has built a large wooden drop box to be placed permanently at the back of the Coats for Kids building at 1111 West Lake Street in Tawas City. He even painted it a beautiful shade of blue and put a padlock on the bottom half for security. It was too large and too heavy for Jim and Tony to move, so we asked for help from the good folks at Iosco RESA, and they obligingly went to Jim’s house with some strong teenagers and a trailer and picked up the box and delivered it to the building. Jim has fastened it on to the railing of the handicap ramp and it is ready for business. What a blessing this will be for us and for all those who like to dispose of coats once they decide they don’t want them.

Prayer Ministries

Prayer Chain

Just a reminder that to start the prayer chain, all you have to do is to call the church office 362-5371.  You just have to give the name of the person to be prayed for. If you wish you can give more information but it is not necessary to activate the prayer chain.  There is nothing like the power of prayer! Grace’s prayer chain is intended to bring prayerful support to the needs of its members, their families and friends. Each participant in Grace’s prayer chain receives a call or email (whichever they have requested) with a prayer request. That person is then asked to relay the concern to one other participant next in line on the “Telephone Tree”. Once the call is made, they take time to pray privately for the need requested. Subsequent thought and prayers are recommended during the days following the request. These requests may be for someone who is going into the hospital, facing financial hardship, needing strength to carry on, needing support for loved ones who are ill or dying or any other needs. You can be specific or general with your prayer request.

God answers prayers, and all prayers can help!!!!
