Youth Sunday
Come support the youth of our parish and celebrate their talents this Sunday, October 19. Members of the Journey program (grades 6 – 12) will greet, read, usher, and preach at both services and assist with music for the 10:45 AM service. We are also making plans to dedicate the new playground immediately following the 10:45 AM service.

A Special Blessing for Our Amigos for Christamigoslogo
Come share in a special blessing this Sunday morning, October 19, in the 10:45 service as we give thanks for those from Grace who are going to Nicaragua October 25 to November 1. This is our first year to share this extraordinary ministry as a parish, and we want to give thanks for those who are going to help bring clean water…and to remind ourselves that we are all, in essence, sharing in this ministry as Grace Episcopal Church. We give thanks to God for the gifts we are invited to share…

A Service of Repentance and Reconciliation
You are invited to join Bishop Rob Wright for A Service of Repentance and Reconciliation on Wednesday, October 22 at 7:00 PM at The Cathedral of St. Philip. For those unable to make it to the service in person, it will be accessible (up until The Peace) on a live video stream. Grace Church will also provide the stream in the youth room following GWAG for anyone who would like to participate together.  more details
