Dinner & Bowl Painting This Wednesday

Most Wednesdays during the church school year our Grace Church family will gather for food, fellowship, fun, and learning. Join us in the parish hall on September 4 for fried chicken (or pesto and roasted red pepper tortellini), white macaroni & cheese, baked beans, salad, rolls, and chocolate cake. Dinner service begins at 5:30 PM.

Meal reservations are typically due by 12:00 PM each Monday. Since the office will be closed on September 2, please make a reservation for our first meal no later than 10:00 AM on Tuesday, September 3. Sign up online, at the information station, or call the church office. If you make a reservation and do not attend, you will still be asked to pay for the meal that is ordered for you. Thank you for understanding.

Adult meals are $10/each and youth meals (grades 6-12) are $5/each. There is no charge for children 5th grade and under. Payment may be made at each dinner, or online in advance! Information for online payment will be shared when you submit a meal reservation form.

Following dinner we will paint bowls in support of the Georgia Mountain Food Bank’s Empty Bowl Luncheon. This is a favorite inter-generational activity at Grace Church and we are glad to once again help support this annual fundraiser.

Childcare is available during all Wednesday evening activities, beginning with nursery for siblings of choristers at 4:45 PM. Reservations are required and can be made on the same form as meal reservations.

Grief Recovery Group Now Forming

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. The class will meet on Thursdays from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, beginning October 3. There is a $25 fee to cover the book and materials. Email Cheryl Kelley for details and to sign up.
