Plan to join us for a celebration of our life together at GWAG on November 12! Pink hair, fried chicken & being thankful…it doesn’t get much better! Fr. Stuart has invited all parishioners to join he and Cynthia in giving thanks for our life together by wearing pink wigs or dying your hair pink. After dinner we will especially share thanks for our Grace family members who for whatever reason, at this time, are not able to join us for worship and parish life activities. We will be creating “Thankful Wreaths” to deliver to those parishioners as a reminder that Every One Really Does Count! GWAG on the 2nd Wednesday each month is an opportunity for all ages to gather for activities to reinforce our connection to one another – make plans to participate!
