Grace Episcopal Church 
Weekly Update
February 27, 2018

Have you ever taken a moment to think, what is it about Grace that I love?

We asked your new Vestry to start off our recent Vestry Retreat with this question. The answers have been posted on the hallway bulletin board and we encourage you to add your thoughts as well! Stop by the Parish Hall and post your answers on the notecards provided.

After spending time reflecting on what this community means to us, your Vestry developed goals for 2018. The summary of the Vestry goals are available in the following link: 2018 Vestry Goals. We invite you to read what has been outlined and let any Vestry member know if you have questions.

We are thankful to have you as part of our church family and look forward to sharing 2018 with you as we continue to grow and serve the Goochland community!


Still on the fence about joining one our the Dinner Groups?

Our first group met this weekend and had a great time together! We are looking forward to growing this new ministry and it's not too late to get involved! Contact Christie Evans at if you would like to get connected.

"And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." Hebrews 10:25

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER SERVICE - Our Lenten Wednesday morning prayer service at 8:00 am has started. Join us and then walk across the street to meet others for breakfast at our Wake Up With Grace fellowship hour at the Goochland Restaurant.
