Name Tags: What a Gift!
Our new Rector, The Rev. Dr. Allen J. Robinson, and his family join us on Palm Sunday, March 25. What a great welcoming gift it will be if we all wear our name tags whenever we are at church. When Allen greets us after the service, or talks to us at coffee hour, our name tags help him put a name to a face. So, starting now, please put you name tag on when you arrive at church, and keep it on until you leave the building. Just put your tag in one of the tag drop boxes when you leave. If you have any questions or concerns about your name tags as issued, please see Rick Francis after Sunday services.


Name tag maven Rick Francis and Harriet de Ceunyck keep our tags in good order!
Thank You & Godspeed!
We say good-bye to Jim
On Sunday, March 18, Jim Hagen celebrates his last services at Grace. We are more than grateful for his wise sermons, pastoral presence, and thoughtful guidance as we made our way through this time of transition.

Join us following the 11 am service to share our appreciation and our good wishes for his "real" retirement!
Lenten Outreach  
Lent is a season of reflection, prayer and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. In gratitude for the many blessings in our life and in our community at Grace Church, we are supporting two organizations, one local and one global, that work to improve food security and nutrition. You can make donations to the World Food Program and/or CHiPs by going to the organizations’ websites or leaving your contributions in the envelopes located on the Lenten Outreach table at the back of the church. You can also contribute non-perishable food items for CHiPS by leaving them in the labeled baskets. More detailed information about each organization can be found on the Lenten Outreach table. (Checks should be made out to: Grace Church and the memo line should indicate either World Food Program or CHiPS). Your support is appreciated!
