Music on Spotify

Hi all, Happy Easter! I am glad many of you enjoyed the Spotify playlists for Holy Week, and that some tried Spotify for the first time too…it really is great. Here is a link to a playlist for this week, the second Sunday of Easter!

Impasse, Imagination, and Contemplation

Fr. Stuart’s online forum on prayer will be on a sabbath/study break April 13-17, spending time resting and reading, writing and collecting thoughts and images. The class will return on Monday, April 20 as we dig even deeper into the theme of “what does it mean to participate in the life of God?” and explore Thomas Keating’s God is All in All: The Evolution of the Contemplative Christian Spiritual Journey.

Graduate Recognition

Grace Church typically honors all graduates from high school, college, and graduate school each spring. Although nothing is typical right now, we are still planning to produce our annual Graduate Recognition bulletin! The publication will be provided as a printable .pdf document link in one of the May issues of our email newsletter. High school graduates will also be recognized at a 10:45 AM worship service on a Sunday in the future when we are able to be together again in person!

If you will graduate (or have a child graduating) this spring/summer, please submit the online information form on or before Sunday, May 3. Information submitted after the deadline will not appear in the printable bulletin but high school graduates will still be recognized at church.

Virtual Community Bulletin Board

Grace parishioners – do you own or work for a company that has come up with creative solutions to continue to safely serve customers? We’d be happy to post that information on our new virtual community bulletin board. Send information to Jennifer Williams.
