A Festival Holy Eucharist will be held at 9:00 AM and again at 11:00 AM on Sunday, April 9. Both services will feature special music from the choir and instrumentalists and will continue our joyful celebration of the Resurrection of Christ!
A continental breakfast will be served in the parish hall between worship services, from about 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM. Come end your Lenten fast.
Parishioners are invited to bring flowers and greenery from their garden to help flower the cross. This traditional Easter morning activity symbolizes that an instrument of cruel death has become a sign of life and love by the power and grace of God.
Children 5th grade and younger are invited to bring their Easter baskets and meet at the crow’s nest across the street on the Brenau lawn (or in the nave if it is raining) to participate in an egg hunt that will begin immediately following the 11:00 AM service.
We invite you to join us – all are welcome!
The parish office will be closed on Monday, April 10 and Tuesday, April 11.
There will be no CE classes on Easter Sunday, April 9.
It is true that Grace is one of the few parishes who have not returned to using the Common Cup at Communion, but we have made decisions around our shared space very diligently, with enormous gratitude for our medical experts who have helped the community navigate the complexities. Given where we are this Spring, I want to send this update out to you with a plan.
We are looking to bring back the Common Cup on Sunday, May 19. In order to do this, it will help to refresh ourselves on our customary—as well as highlight a couple important notes.
It is impossible to have both the trays and the chalice, as we would have to navigate who sits on which side, etc. Also the Altar Guild would then have to coordinate two kinds of set up, and that adds inordinate stress. So, we will give ourselves ample time to prepare and look toward a smooth transition.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me, Sonja McLendon, our Senior Warden, or Julia Greene, our Junior Warden.
Look ahead to upcoming opportunities for prayer, worship, and community!
