GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS 

HEARING AID ZONE

Our hearing aid zone (audio induction loop) is now operational. If you wear a hearing aid, you can set it to “T” (Telecoil) setting and it will pick up an amplified wireless signal to aid your hearing if you sit within the hearing aid zone. Look out for the pews with the hearing aid signage. If you need any clarification, please approach our AV team at the sound booth.

 

MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY

To help us get to know our fellow church members better, the church office will be compiling a membership directory with photographs of each member. We need your help with this project! If you have not already provided the church office with a photograph of yourself, please send one to the GBC office by 4 November. You can email your photos to Pauline (pauline@gracebaptistchurch.sg) in jpeg file format.
