Holy Communion is offered on Sundays at 9:30 AM and on Wednesdays at 12:00 PM, outdoors on the Grace Church campus for a congregation of 50 or less. All are welcome, however registration is required. Virtual services are held on Sundays at 8:15 and 10:45 AM and every weeknight at 8:00 PM.

Readers are needed for our 9:30 AM outdoor service of Holy Eucharist. If you are interested in reading lessons or the prayers of the people, please contact Fr. Stuart. (You will need to also register for the service.)
In order for the Finance Committee and Vestry to do the preliminary budget work for 2021, we ask that everyone return their pledges by Sunday, November 15. Pledge forms were mailed to every household and can be printed from our website. Forms can also be filled out electronically. Thank you for your continued support of Grace Church!
We were delighted to host an online organ concert by Ray and Beth Chenault two weeks ago. Specializing in and exclusively performing works written for four hands and four feet at one pipe organ console, the Chenaults (“The World’s Premiere Duo-Organ Team”, Atlanta Journal & Constitution) have made a monumental and unmatched contribution to the pipe organ repertoire through their commissioning, premiering, and recording of over sixty organ duets.
Their concert at Grace included a wide variety of pieces including a crowd favorite: Phantom of the Opera Medley (Andrew Lloyd Weber Arr. Chenault). If you missed it, or if you want to watch it again, the video will remain online…feel free to share with any of your music loving friends!
This holiday season, Grace Church will help support two Family Promise outreach opportunities.
The first, Thanksgiving Blessing Boxes, will help stock the new Food Market. Every day in November, add one of these requested items to a box in your home, and on November 25 donate the contents to the Family Promise Food Market. For more information contact Family Promise at 770-535-0786.
The second project is the Christmas Promise Store. Each December Family Promise of Hall County partners with local businesses, churches and volunteers to provide a store full of new toys so families may select gifts for their children at drastically reduced prices. This year’s store will operate December 10, 11, and 12 from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. If you would like to donate (money or toys) or volunteer to help with this effort, please visit the Family Promise website to learn more.
Don’t forget we are gathering outside on Sunday mornings following worship for a time of study, fellowship, and fun. Our intergenerational Sunday School is open to families and parishioners of all ages! This Sunday, October 25, we’ll continue with Compassion Camp, a look at how compassion helps us be present to one another, so we can better love God, our neighbors and ourselves. We meet in the Grace Center parking lot from 10:10 – 11:00 AM. Children must be accompanied by a parent. Registration is required. Register at the button link below and bring a chair and your mask!
