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 this Sunday, 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).

UMC DAY OF HEALTH
To further The United Methodist Church's commitment to 
improve  health for all, Global Ministries, in partnership with the North Georgia Annual Conference, is hosting the UMC Day of Health on Saturday, March 17th, at Dunwoody UMC (1548 Mount Vernon Rd., Atlanta, GA 30338). This day will help to equip leaders and inspire others to find new ways to engage their communities through health ministries. 

Everyone is welcome! Visit here to learn more.

GA MARATHON-PLAN ACCORDINGLY
The Georgia Marathon is coming on Sunday, March 18th! Several roads around Grace UMC will be closed for the race.

You WILL be able to make it to church, but you may need to plan ahead. Visit here for street closures.

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, and our deadline is Sunday, March 18th.

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).
