Prayer Yoga Classes Continue July 17

It is not too late for interested parishioners to participate in our prayer yoga series that began July 10. Classes meet in the parish hall on Mondays, July 17, 24, and 31, with prayer chair yoga from 3:00 – 3:45 and prayer yoga flow from 4:00 – 4:45. Please dress comfortably for movement and bring a yoga mat for flow yoga. (If you have any health issues, please make sure that you have consulted your doctor.) For more information contact Karen Murphy at karend@windstream.net. Namaste!

Foyers Groups Forming Now

When you come to a new church, it’s a bit of a mystery. Is it alright to park here? Am I sitting in someone else’s pew? Is that coffee saved for a special group? Navigating through new space requires careful regard for those who have come before all the while looking for an opportunity to belong.

Foyers provides an opportunity wrapped in hospitality to get to know other people as they really are. Sure, you go to the same church, but when you sit down around the table and talk about your families, careers, and adventures, you glimpse the essence of a person that’s not available through a quick greeting at church. Jesus knew this – that breaking bread in someone’s home, on a mountaintop or a seaside picnic brings people closer together.

Have you been at Grace for a while? Then sign up for Foyers and encourage new faces. Just started coming? Then get acquainted with those who know and love the church. What’s in it for you? Good food, an evening out, and the chance to meet your new best friend.

Foyers groups are forming now! Sign up online or at the information station no later than Sunday, August 20.
