Grace Episcopal Church 
Weekly Update
The United Thank Offering (UTO) at Grace will be Sunday,  June 25th. Boxes and envelopes are in the Narthex.  If you would like to write a check, please make it out to Grace Church with UTO in the memo line.

As a ministry of the Episcopal Church, the purpose of UTO  is "as you give thanks, put some coins or dollars into a United Thank Offering Blue Box, or set aside an offering reminder for later. When your box is full or you put a check in a United Thank Offering envelope, your thanksgivings unite with others’ prayers and thankful quarters, dimes, and dollars from across The Episcopal Church to support God’s mission around the world".

VACATION - Don't forget Emily is out of town June 9-16th.  In the event of an emergency, please contact Don Knight, Senior Warden, at 540-220-7988.  If you have general questions, Cindy is in the office Tuesday, Thursday and Friday or you can email her at
