Join us every weeknight at 8:00 PM for community prayers, “Zoompline” (Compline via Zoom*), and perhaps more. This same link is usable every evening to make it easy.

Sunday school for the young and young at heart will be live-streamed on Facebook on Sunday, March 22 at 10:00 AM using Godly Play stories for everyone. You won’t need a Facebook account just to view the live-stream, but you will need an account if you wish to interact through the comment feature.
This Sunday at 9:30 AM youth in grades 6-12 will gather “as usual” – except of course, nothing is “as usual” right now. The Youth leaders recognize how difficult and disappointing it is for so many of our Youth to be missing out on much anticipated events in these last weeks of the school year. We are also sad to be missing out on our final few Sunday school classes. Fortunately, we ended with a fantastic Purim lesson! So, please join our Zoom Sunday school class at 9:30 AM. (Meeting ID # 537 785 949)

With Sunday services being live streamed we have had several questions on how best to make pledge payments. The office mail is picked up daily so pledge payments can be mailed to Grace Episcopal Church, 422 Brenau Ave., Gainesville, Georgia 30501. Pledge payments can also be made online. If you have any questions please email Reba Page.
One of my favorite parts of Sunday mornings is joining our voices together in hymnody. Since we can’t join together in person for a little while, Emily and I recorded a few hymns at Grace. Perhaps you might enjoy singing along with us from your home. See below for YouTube links to each of the hymns. If you don’t have a hymnal at home, click here for the hymn sing from home packet.
