Summer Stewardship:  In the next several weeks we will see the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacations.  During this time, we typically experience a decline in weekly church attendance.  However, we will continue to need your financial support.  We want to encourage everyone to continue your weekly, monthly, or quarterly giving in order for our church to meet its monthly operating expenses.

Wednesday Adult Education Class: Adult Education on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. will be reading and discussing Barbara Brown Taylor’s book “Learning to Walk in the Darkness.” Come and join Rev. Charles and others in this current book study each Wednesday evening after our community potluck dinner at 5:15 p.m. If you pre-ordered your book, it will be in the church office on Monday afternoon. The book is $14 or call the parish office to order a book.

Visiting Members of Grace Church: Grace Church for many years has offered visitation to members of the congregation. Unfortunately, with the pandemic, those visitations had to stop. Rev. Charles needs help visiting our membership that are unable to come to Sunday worship or other church events, so they know they are not forgotten. If you are interested in helping as a visitor, Eucharistic Visitor, or to write cards to members both near and far, please contact the parish office or Rev. Charles for more information.

Sunday Morning Hospitality: The church has been purchasing Red’s Donuts for our hospitality after the 10 a.m. service every Sunday since the beginning of the year. Unfortunately, this is not sustainable with our current budget. Fr. Charles needs help continuing our hospitality tradition each Sunday with a volunteer to host one Sunday each month with some type of snack for fellowship. A sign-up sheet will be on the hospitality table on Sunday morning for members to sign.
