Come celebrate this Sunday, October 5, as we welcome Cynthia and Jack Park to Grace Church! As George Henderson said on Sunday, they are an answer to our prayers, and we are so grateful for their presence with us. I know you all will be supportive of them as Cynthia settles into her new role as Associate Rector for Ministries of Compassion. Cynthia (the kids call her Eme, Hebrew for ‘Mother’) will give the sermon this Sunday, so she is hitting the ground full speed. We will also have a welcome reception for them in the Parish Hall between services, so we all will have time to get to know one another… As always, I am so thankful for the amazing staff we have at Grace….

Grace adults gather each month in the Youth Room to watch and discuss movies old and new addressing a wide variety of subjects. A very casual occasion, participants often bring a little food and drink to share. We always have a good time and lively discussion—join us at 7:00 PM on Friday, October 10.
