3rd SUNDAYS at 5:00 PM
New to Grace is a monthly gathering that morphs a book club into a space that fosters an “access to the alphabet and vocabulary of the spirit.” We will use books, such as Richard Rohr’s new book Universal Christ, Howard Thurman’s Jesus and the Disinherited, Black Elk Speaks, and Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart, as a starting point for intential conversations about so much more.
Each month when we have a Gathering, we will advertise the date and time of the meeting. When you call the parish office to RSVP they will give you the address. This way, our continued experiment with ‘pop up church’ continues as we delve more deeply into our conversations.
Tuesdays beginning June 4
Tara Goetz, LPC at 360 Therapy, will lead an Internal Family Systems Therapy Group at Grace Church on Tuesdays* from 9:15 – 10:45 AM beginning June 4. “Parenting from the Inside Out” will examine how to overcome your barriers to calm and confident parenting, tap into your clarity for more effective and balanced parenting, and connect with your child.
This group is experiential. Each participant will have an opportunity for one session for individualized focus and internal exploration with the leader. Group members share according to their comfort level. Every participant is required to bring a journal for self-observation. Suggested reading is Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model by Richard Schwartz, PhD.
Cost is $75 per person per 1.5 hour session. If you are interesting in joining the group, or have further questions, please contact Cheryl Kelley. The deadline to register is May 20.
* Group will not meet on June 25 or July 2.
June 5, June 19, July 10, and July 24
Join us for our Women’s Summer Study on June 5, June 19, July 10, and July 24 from 6:00-8:00 PM. We’ll gather in one another’s homes to explore women of the Bible, and share a time of learning, fellowship, and fun.
On June 5 we will study Eve. For fun, we’ll have an accessory swap (no fig leaves, please!) – please bring a scarf, belt, bag, hat, necklace, bracelet, or other item you’d like to trade.
For more information, including location schedule, contact Cheryl Kelley. (770-536-0126 or email)

Come join us as we explore praying with our bodies. Chair Yoga meets from 2:45 – 3:30 PM and Slow Flow Yoga from 3:45 – 4:45 PM. All are welcome!
Yoga typically takes a summer break, so check our calendar for the exact schedule.
Twice a year, all Grace Church members are invited to participate in a Foyer Group. Foyer Groups consist of small groups of adults who meet in one another’s homes for a meal and fellowship over the course of approximately six months. Not only is participation in Foyers fun, but it also facilitates deeper relationships among Grace Church members. Newcomers are especially encouraged to sign up.
