Parenting with Grace: conference room
Bible Study is off to a great start! Join the Rev. Dr. Park to explore the three Biblical texts of Ruth, Esther, and Judith and their characters. We will make use of several resources and engage the texts from many different perspectives – social, political, language, theological, and historical. Our shared reflections will include art, poetry, music, and other modes for expressing holy imagination.
We will gather in the conference room from 10:30 AM until 12:00 PM each Monday (unless there is a Monday federal holiday) until November 13.
Our next Bicentennial Story has been published! Kimmey Boyd is a long-time member of Grace. In fact, her Sunday School room as a child was in the undercroft! Watch her story to learn more about the many ways she feels connected to Grace, including through the women’s retreat, DOK, flower guild, and raising her children here.
ALL members of the parish are invited to add their stories to our collection, whether you’ve been here 30 years or 30 days! Email Cynthia to learn more.
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!
