2024 Weekly News

News February 18-24

Bible Study Resumes Monday

The Monday morning Bible Study will resume on February 19! Join the Rev. Dr. Park for a three week study to explore Field and Stream: Biblical Stories of Hunting and Fishing.

The study will begin with a look at biblical references to “sea monsters”. We will explore these passages within their historical and political contexts, and also consider how the anthropomorphizing of our primal fears makes these images feel very current to us today.

All ages and stages are welcome! A Bible, a journal, and a commentary are helpful tools. No fishing license required. See you on Monday, February 19 at 10:30 AM in the Grace Center Library/Conference Room.

Stock the Family Promise Pantry

Family Promise is in need of some items to help keep the pantry stocked! (click here for list) Groceries can be taken directly to Family Promise at 3606 McEver Rd, Oakwood, brought to the Grace Center kitchen Monday – Thursday from 10 AM – 4 PM, or left in the Greeting Area on Sunday. If you bring items to Grace please make sure they are clearly marked for Family Promise. Please donate items by Sunday, February 18.

In 2023, 19 families were in the Family Promise shelter program with a total of 40 children in those family units. At the end of the year 7 families (14 children) were active in FP and another family has been added in 2024. There is a lot of good work happening at the Homestead making a difference for families of Hall county. Thank you so very much for your support.

Exploring the Prophetic Imagination During Lent

Stuart and Cynthia invite you to spend Lent with them this year, in a special Forum beginning this Sunday, February 11, exploring Walter Brueggemann’s seminal book The Prophetic Imagination. As Brueggemann says, his thesis is: “This task of prophetic ministry is to nurture, nourish, and evoke a consciousness and perception alternative to the consciousness and perception of the dominant culture around us.” The Forum meets in the parish hall from 9:30 – 10:30 AM on Sundays.

The Power of Presence Retreat

On Saturday, March 9 we will gather for a retreat, The Power of Presence: Nurturing a Community of Compassion in Challenging Times. This retreat will feature interfaith leaders from the community, incredible art, poetry, music, and reflections on the power of presence within a community seeking to nurture peace. River Guerguerian, a world-renowned percussionist from Asheville, will lead an experiential workshop. Also, we will write prayers and messages of peace on fabric that will then be gathered into a quilt to embody our intentions of fostering community compassion. You are invited to share this time together, as we continue to listen for that common heartbeat that unites us all.
