Fr. Stuart invites all young adults in the parish to a garden party on Sunday, April 24 (rain date May 1) from 4:00 – 5:30 PM. Let’s take time to visit with one another and see what ideas we have as we look forward with our community. See your newsletter for all the details!
Kids in rising PreK-5th grade are invited to join us for our 2022 Vacation Bible School, June 21, 22, and 23 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
Our theme this summer is Food Truck Party! Using Matthew 6:11; “Give us this day our daily bread”, children are invited to pray as Jesus teaches. These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God – and our daily needs are met by God. Through Bible stories, worship, games, crafts, and other activities we will explore the countless ways God provides, loves, and cares for us and talk about how we can join God in providing, loving, and caring for others.
A $25 donation per child ($20 for siblings) to help offset expenses would be appreciated. Online registration is now open! Participation is limited to 65 children. Follow the VBS page on Facebook to keep up with the latest news!
Grace Church typically honors high school and college graduates each spring. Our annual recognition bulletin will be provided as links to a digital slideshow and a printable .pdf document in the May 22 issue of our email newsletter. Graduates will also be recognized during the 10:45 AM service May 22.
If you will graduate (or have a child graduating) this spring/summer, please submit the online information form on or before Sunday, May 15. Information submitted after the deadline will not appear in the slideshow or printable bulletin but high school graduates would still be recognized at church.Graduate Information Form
We often think of grief as only the suffering that results from a death. But actually, grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss of any kind. It’s the conflicting feelings we experience when our familiar patterns change—for better or for worse. Thus, we grieve all sorts of things: the loss of a loved one, through death or divorce, the loss of a job, the loss of our health, for sure. But also, sometimes surprisingly, we grieve over “good things” like our children going off to college, or settling into retirement, or moving to a new home.
The Grief Recovery Method is an eight week course which offers information and specific actions we can take to help work through those feelings and recover our sense of energy and spontaneity. We’ll start a new 8 week class beginning the week of May 16, at a time to be agreed upon by the participants. There is a $20 fee to cover the cost of course materials. Please contact Cheryl Kelley for more information and to register.
Look ahead to upcoming opportunities for prayer, worship, and community!
