Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications!
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
(See Hymnal # 94)
Please remember to put your Connection Card in the offering plate. Thank you!
But there is forgiveness with you,
that you may be worshiped.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
in the Lord’s word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
with the Lord is plenteous redemption.
And the Lord will redeem Israel from all iniquities.
Lord, today we praise you for the gifts that you have given us. Everything that we
have we owe to you. Let us have the knowledge to care for what you have given us, and
the strength not to put our wealth before you. Amen.

Grace UMC is hosting a silent auction on Nov. 9th, 2PM-5PM, in Ash Hall.
Recently Brian was diagnosed with brain cancer. Our purpose is to raise money for the

facing this alone.
The silent auction will be an open house where you may come and go as you
please. Our GUMC praise band “Glorified” (started by Brian) will be performing as
well as other entertainers. Desserts and beverages will be provided. Please contact
Jane Taylor at 814-364-1857 to help with refreshments or donate a dessert. There is
also a sign-up sheet in the hallway.
Admission is free, however Love Offerings will be appreciated. Checks may be
made payable to GUMC; please write Brian Judy on the memo line.
Donations of items or services are being accepted for the auction. Please fill out a
pink slip, on the table in the sanctuary, and place in the offering plate. Please write the
value of the item as well. Thank you.
