Policy Updates: Explore Them Now!

For the past two years, the vestry has worked to update all the pertinent policies and guidelines for our common life at Grace. We now have a full complement of updated, transparent, and integrated policies! Prior to the Annual Meeting on January 27, we are making these available for your information. Some of you may find them interesting, and I hope the entire parish is grateful for the hard work the vestry, finance committee and task forces have done to make our administrative cluster as efficient as possible.

The updated policies are available for review in a notebook in the greeting area and online for download.


You are never too old! Calling all former acolytes!

We are looking for any “active adults” who would like to participate in worship Sunday, January 31. If you served as an acolyte several decades ago, or perhaps never had the chance to serve in that way, please consider signing up for this special service. The worship will be the same but children, youth, and older adults will be serving in different-than-usual capacities. We will need acolytes (including crucifer and torch-bearers) and readers from the older generations. Again this is our traditional worship, but celebrating and highlighting the breadth of our gifted church community. Contact Father Alan to sign up or if you have questions.

Come build with us!

You may have heard that we are partnering with other churches to build a new Habitat for Humanity home. Building is actively taking place on the site and volunteers are welcome most days. Upcoming Grace Church build days are January 9 (YES that’s THIS Saturday), 14, 26, February 6 and 25  from 9:00 A-3:00 PM.

If you would like to participate in Habitat Build but feel that hammering, sawing, and heavy lifting is not your thing, please consider volunteering to coordinate lunch for the workers.

If you would like to sign up for any of these opportunities or to get more information, contact Joe Cronmiller or Father Alan.
