The prayer list book that was located on the table in the narthex can now be found in the lower foyer directly across from the prayer candle stand. If you have a name to put on our prayer list you can add it to the book or email the information to Brenda Morgan. Please remember to include first and last names when appropriate. Single names are also accepted.
Names remain on the prayer list for 3 weeks and will be printed in the service bulletin and read aloud in church services. Please indicate if long-term prayers are desired and the Daughters of the King will be notified of your request. Part of their vocation is prayer for long term situations.
Prayer Yoga classes will not be held on Monday, July 5.
The clergy and staff will be closing their virtual offices on Monday, July 5 in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
The deadline to submit information for both the July 11 and July 18 issues of the newsletter is Tuesday, July 6 at 9:00 AM.
Due to technical difficulties with our equipment, we were not able to live stream or record the June 27 service. So The Rev. David Powell’s homily, “Glimpses of Eternity,” has been posted on our website.
Anyone seeking new ways to serve, or interested in an intentional community to support the ways you are already serving, is invited to spend the next two months considering if the Benedictine-steeped Community of Hope International (COHI) might be a calling. The Community of Hope is first of all a praying community – modeled on principles of Benedictine spirituality espoused first by St. Benedict, a sixth century monastic whose “Rule” has for over 1500 years guided people all around the world to live balanced lives through practices rooted in humility and hospitality. Benedict’s goal was “to safeguard love.”
A pick-up choir will help lead Sunday worship every week through the end of August. Please email Will Gotmer for more information if you are interested in participating. Rehearsals will be held Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM. Previous choir participation is not necessary.
Mark your calendars for our annual Day in the Mountains & Picnic Lunch at Vogel State Park in Blairsville on Saturday, July 31. Since 2004 Grace Church has gathered at the end of the summer to enjoy the cooler mountain air next to Trahlyta Lake for lunch, fellowship, and outdoor fun. Located at the base of Blood Mountain in the Chattahoochee National Forest, with an elevation of 2,500 feet, Vogel is a great spot to spend a hot summer day.
