Following the 10:00 a.m. service on Easter Sunday (April 21), GSP hosts a great celebratory party: a jumping castle, a petting zoo, face painting, an Easter Egg Hunt. It's all here! GSP will provide cold, spiral-sliced ham and water, iced tea, lemonade, and coffee. We are asking people to bring cold side dishes, cold salads and desserts. Help make this a picnic feast for all!

An Episcopal Vision for Care of Creation – week 3
 
You are invited to consider manifold ways
to care for Creation. This weekly series extending to Pentecost will help explore actions toward an Episcopal Pledge to Care for Creation.

Spouses of same-sex couples have been disinvited to attend next year’s (2020) Lambeth Conference, the once-every-ten-years gathering of bishops of the Anglican Communion, while spouses of mixed-gender couples are invited. For details, see the link below, to the Episcopal News Service release on the issue. 
 
What are the implications for Grace St. Paul’s as an inclusive and welcoming community? Should we accept this directive as part of the process of discernment for those Anglican communities who condemn same-sex marriage? Or should we lodge a community protest, perhaps encouraging other Episcopal congregations to join? Should we go slow? Or act up?  
GSP conducts a congregation-wide discussion on Wednesday, May 1, at 6 PM in the Bloom Room.  Advocates of all points of view are welcome.

New Parish Photo Directory Planned

Sundays through at least June, members of Grace St. Paul’s can have their pictures taken for a new photo directory.
The directory will be done completely
in-house. John Banks will have equipment set up each Sunday inside the Parish Office area from about 9 a.m. until noon. 
Subjects will be able to see and choose their pictures at the time of taking. There will be no cost, no sales pitches, and the digital image files will be provided. 
There will also be an opportunity to examine and correct the directory information which will be published.
The directory itself will be published as a PDF file which will be made available to everyone who wants one. Print-on-demand physical copies can be arranged through a third-party provider.

Additional photo sessions can be arranged on alternate days or locations if needed. Please contact John Banks through the Parish office to make those arrangements.
Please plan to have your picture taken and included in our new directory. It’s a good way for us all to get to know each other.
