Worship returns to the nave on Palm Sunday at 8:15 AM! On Sundays and throughout Holy Week, there will be a mix of in-person options for both indoor and outdoor spaces, as well as continued online worship for those who are more comfortable at home. Details, registration information for in person services, and links to worship bulletins can be found on the following webpages.
During this period of transition, registration, masks, one way traffic flow, distancing, attendance limits, no live singing, etc. will all be part of our temporary “normal.” In addition, diocesan guidelines restrict the availability of printed materials. This means there will be no bulletins handed out and no books in the pews for in-person services.
We will continue to make all worship bulletins available on this website. You are welcome to print and bring your own copy, or access the pdf document from a mobile device during the service. (Although there is wifi in the nave, you may wish to download the document to your device ahead of time.) And, of course, bringing your own Book of Common Prayer is also a great option. If you don’t already have one, now is the perfect time to get one!
We are collecting Easter family photos for potential use during our virtual worship service on April 4 and on our social media during the Easter season. The photo should include at least one current Grace Church parishioner but they do not need to have been taken at Grace Church and do not need to be recent. So let’s see those gloves and bonnets from the 60s, or get all dressed up and take a special photo for 2021!
Photos for the video processional on Easter Sunday should be submitted at the link below no later than 5:00 PM on Tuesday, March 23. Photos will still be accepted after March 23 for use on social media. If you need us to scan a print, please contact Jeremy Landers to arrange a time to meet.
The Lenten study, Are We There Yet? Learning to Recognize the Process of Spiritual Maturation, continues this Tuesday, March 23, at 5:00 PM. The study is facilitated by Cheryl Kelley on Zoom. Join us as we seek to understand the spiritual needs of individuals at different stages of life in order to cultivate compassion and awareness for ourselves and others.
The deadline to make an offering to the Easter flower fund is this Wednesday, March 24! Contributions may be made in thanksgiving for or in memory of loved ones, friends and family. Notice of your donation will be included in the worship bulletin for The Great Vigil and Easter Sunday.
