First Discernment Gathering
This Coming Sunday - April 17, at 9:00am

The whole parish (including our youth) are encouraged to participate as we reflect on where we are as a congregation and where God might be calling us to go into the future. 

There will be two more Discernment Gatherings to take place on the following Sunday mornings at 9:00am:
May 1 and May 22

While not mandatory, participation in these conversations will inform the work of our Search Committee; scheduled to be appointed at our June 8 Vestry meeting. 

Thank you for your continued prayers and support of the leadership and ministries of Grace Church.
Vestry Highlights . . .

Your Vestry engaged in the following topics as a part of our meeting on April 13:

- Reviewed materials that will be used to form the Rector Search Committee and the tasks they will be charged to accomplish on behalf of the parish.  Information will be published to the congregation following the May 11, Vestry meeting.
- Evaluated our Mutual Ministry Review and NCD Planning Event, held on April 9, and discussed strategies for more participation by the members of the congregation.
- Heard a report from our Junior Warden, Les Marks, about a number of projects being accomplished around the parish property.  Les also reminded everyone that we need to take personal responsibility for closing an locking all windows and doors after a parish event.  Some signs will be posted to remind everyone of this important task.
