GWAG on March 11: #eatpraycolor
Do you remember in your childhood how peaceful and relaxing it was to sit down with a box of crayons? It was a quiet activity that was most likely introduced to you by either your parents or teachers. Has it been a while since you have had the opportunity to create designs using shapes & colors? Please plan to join us for an evening in which we will explore a technique for centering our prayers. Learn how to “park” your distractions and focus on your conversations with God. So come create with us and imagine your prayer as you move through the labyrinth. We believe this unique experience for all ages will surprise you. Make a meal reservation no later than 12:00 PM on Monday, March 9. details and reservation link

DOK March Meetings
All women of Grace Church are invited to attend either of the Daughters of the King gatherings in March. For those that cannot meet on weekdays we have a group meeting Sunday March 8 after the 10:45 AM service in the parlor. They are studying Benedictine Spirituality with Jane Tomaine’s book, St. Benedicts’ Toolbox: The Nuts and Bolts of Everyday Living. The Wednesday morning DOK group will meet on March 11 at 10:30 AM in the Conference room. Father Stuart will help us understand what it means to live into a “Mindful Christian Community.” Please come and bring a friend.

Ecumenical Service
At noon each Wednesday in Lent, we gather with members of other churches in our community for worship and a light lunch. (Suggested donation is $5.) Please note there are no 12:10 services in the Grace Church Chapel on these Wednesdays. The service on March 11 will be at First Baptist with Rev. Calvin Haney, preaching.
