Grace Church Friends of Music welcomes the Orpheus Men’s Ensemble on Sunday, October 8 at 4:00 PM. Concert is free; a reception will follow in the parish hall. (Please note that we are unable to provide a livestream for this concert.)
Founded in 2015, the ORPHEUS Men’s Ensemble is a male chorus comprised primarily of music educators and church musicians from the Atlanta metro area.
This program is part of the Grace Church Friends of Music 2023-2024 season.
The Episcopal Church offers a special prayer to be used during the Sunday liturgy to more formally recognize those who are new, making a point to celebrate their presence in the community. We will share this prayer time on Sunday, October 22! Fr. Stuart is gathering a list of names to be read, but if you have joined Grace since 2020 and wish to be included, please email him to let him know. This will be a wonderful way to celebrate the Spirit’s work among us, and we will look to include these prayers in our worship on an annual basis from now on.
Sign up by Friday, October 13 to ensure your spot at the 2024 women’s retreat! The women of Grace Church will enjoy a weekend of rejoicing, reflection, and renewal January 12-14 at the Montreat Retreat and Conference Center in Montreat, North Carolina.
The Rev. Mary R. Hemmer will again be our keynote speaker and the theme is “The Life You Choose.” What could I do? What should I do? What do I want? How do I choose? Tackle these questions and more as we weigh the coulds, shoulds, and wants of your life, empowering you to make more informed choices.

Most of the interior of The Grace Center is open, but at present is only accessible via the connector corridor from the main campus. Doors are blocked for entry, and should only be used for exit in the event of an emergency. Some parking is still available in the lot next to the Grace Center, but you will need to walk down the sidewalk and enter the building through the St. Francis Garden.
The “front desk” of the parish office is currently located in the greeting area. If you visit the office during normal hours (Monday – Thursday from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM) please come to the St. Francis Garden doors. If no one is there to let you in call 770-536-0126. If you are stopping by to see a certain staff member we recommend calling ahead, as there may be days when the majority of the staff are working remotely.
Look ahead to upcoming opportunities for prayer, worship, and community!
