Commitment Cards Now Needed!

The Lenten Journey Giving Guides and Commitment Cards were mailed out on last Thursday, March 26.   If you haven’t yet returned your commitment card, please do so when you come to celebrate on this Easter Sunday morning at Grace Baptist Church.  Or, take time now to complete and mail your card to the Church Office in the envelope enclosed with last week’s letter.

If you need another commitment card, please follow this link to this week’s newsletter:   media/newsletters/Newsletter 4-01-15.pdf .  

You’ll find there a copy of the Lenten Journey Giving Guide and Commitment Card.  Simply print, complete and return this Sunday, or by mailing to:  Grace Baptist Church, Lenten Journey, 4200 Dover Road, Richmond VA  23221.

What if I already turned in a commitment card this past November?  Please do us the great favor of once again completing and turning in a commitment card as part of this Lenten emphasis, even if your pledge continues unchanged.   This will greatly aid us in having a single, current tally of everyone’s participation in this special Lenten stewardship effort.

Grace Baptist Church has a unique ministry and mission to offer the greater Richmond community.   You are greatly valued for all the ways you enrich and strengthen the Grace community of faith.   Thank you, first and foremost, for the gift of you!
