The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 2, with an invitation to observe a holy Lent. After what feels like This year’s Lent resource kits, with a focus on wellness and wholeness, will be available for pick up in the lower foyer this Sunday, February 27. There will be a few extras, first come first serve, for households that did not get a chance to reserve one in advance.

Our parish-wide focus during Lent is “Wellness and Wholeness.” One of the key elements in this focus includes participation in the sacramental life of the Church. In this light, we want to extend an offer to any who are homebound, for whatever reason, to have Holy Communion brought to you at some point during the five weeks of Lent.
The clergy are assisted in this ministry by a team of trained Eucharistic Visitors. Communion brought to private homes or nursing homes comes from the same consecrated bread and wine that is offered at our in-person worship services on Sunday. Keeping this connection to our in person worship is a wonderful way to nurture healing and a strengthen a sense of wellbeing. If you are interested in receiving communion, please call the parish office 770-536-0126. We will call you and schedule a convenient time.
Registration is now open for our Lenten Retreat with Rev. Mary Demmler! Join us at Grace on Saturday, March 12 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM for conversation, sharing, and even a little cooking as we explore the prayers and meditations that naturally flow when we practice mindfulness in the kitchen.
Look ahead to upcoming opportunities for prayer, worship, and community!
