Last Pick-up Choir This Week

This Sunday, July 24 is your last chance to join a Summer 2016 pick-up choir!


All Grace Church adults and middle and high school youth are invited to participate. No experience necessary. We will meet in the sanctuary at 10:00 AM to rehearse a simple anthem and look at the hymns and service music for the morning. The pick-up choir will not robe or process, we will come forward to present our offertory anthem and return to the pews. Please feel free to join us. Contact Will Gotmer for more information.

Summer Women’s Study

Our Summer Women’s Bible Study is exploring refreshment, renewal, and restoration. We started last Wednesday but each class can stand alone so it is not too late to join us. We will meet in the Parish Hall at 7:00 PM on July 27 and August 3. Bring a Bible, a notebook, a snack to share, and a friend. All are welcome!
