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

Meet us in Grace Cafe through March 25th, 10am, 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, 404.876.2678).

This day will help to equip leaders and inspire others to find new ways to engage their communities through health ministries.

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, and our deadline is next Sunday, March 18th.

Please complete this form. (http://bit.ly/EasterPlantOrderForm2018) for your order and make your payment online (http://bit.ly/EasterPlantPayments2018), selecting the "Easter Plants" designation. We also accept checks, payable to Grace UMC, clearly marked for "Easter Plants." Just drop it in the offering plate or return it to the church office (458 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta, GA 30308).
