Several years ago we began a tradition of decorating a Grace Family Tree. If you are new to Grace, or simply haven’t yet contributed an ornament, please bring one in and hang it on the tree in the parish hall. Please include your name, and perhaps the year, somewhere on the ornament or on a ribbon attached to the ornament. At the end of the season, ornaments are stored at Grace to be put back on next year. Don’t miss this chance to leave a small Christmas legacy at Grace.
