THE LORD AND HIS PRAYER
Join us for our new,  short-term, adult study on the Lord's Prayer on Sunday mornings during March.

Rediscover the prayer that Jesus first taught us to pray. Each week we will reflect on a section of the prayer with an eye to its importance, then and now.

This is a great way to deepen our prayer practices during Lent, or to jump into Sunday morning classes at Grace UMC.

We begin March 4th, 10am, in the East Transept with nursery available.

No registration is necessary, but for more information, feel free to contact Bill Smith via the church office (office at graceonponce.org or 404.876.2678).

EASTER GARDEN PLANT ORDERS
Easter Sunday is April 1st, and you can help turn our sanctuary into a flowering garden, celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

You may purchase plants to the Glory of God, or in the honor or memory of a loved one. On Easter Sunday, we will publish a list of those who have given a plant, and in whose honor or memory, it was given.

The cost of each plant is $15. Please complete this form  (http://bit.ly/EasterPlantOrderForm2018for your order. Then submit a check payable to Grace UMC, clearly marking it for Easter Plants, by dropping it in the offering plate or by returning it to the church office (458 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta, GA 30308).

Deadline: Sunday, March 18th.

You may pick up your plant shortly after worship on Easter Sunday.
