Bishop Wright has invited us—along with every parish in the diocese—to participate in a Service of Repentance and Reconciliation on the evening of October 22 at 7:00 PM at the Cathedral of St. Philip. Now I am extending a personal invitation to you to meet me at the Cathedral that evening at 6:30 (or 5:30 for an early supper) so that together we can represent Grace Church in this discussion. If you can come to Atlanta earlier, say around 5:30, we could meet for an early supper before going to the Cathedral. Please let me know if you are able to meet me there for this event and whether you would like to also join me for supper at a nearby restaurant. I can be reached by email or by phone at 770-536-0126.
Blessings and Peace,
Parish Office Closed
The office will be closed on Monday, October 13.

Godparents Still Needed!!!
Our new inter-generational program, “Adopt a Godchild,” needs A LOT more godparents! Sign up will continue on Sundays and Wednesdays in the Greeting Area. The idea is to gain the opportunity to build a relationship with a child/adult that you don’t yet know closely, share common threads, and support one another in our faith. The program includes children ages birth to age 18 and adults ages 19-100+!!!
Save the Date for GWAG on October 22: #eatpraylearn
Following dinner on the 4th Wednesday each month, the Adult Formation Committee is providing guided reflection on various topics and themes. On Wednesday, October 22, Jim Taflinger will lead us on a tour of Grace Church online. Come learn more about our website, blog, Facebook page, and email list. Bring a wifi device—laptop, tablet, or smart phone—if you have one. The presentation will be followed by a chance to ask questions. Director of Communication Jennifer Williams will also be in attendance. A live stream of the Diocesan Service of Repentance and Reconciliation will be made available following the program at 7:00 PM in the youth room.
