In addition to Grace Church's Holy Thursday worship opportunities, St. John's United Methodist Church invites anyone who wishes to do so to join their worship service, in which a selection of scriptures will be shared to help the congregation experience the Last Supper. This service is also at 7 PM via Zoom. The Zoom link on the St. John’s website.

A Service of Darkness by Dale Wood
Viewing begins at noon, Good Friday

This service was recorded with Chris and the Chancel Choir for Good Friday 2019, with David Brock as organist. This is the last time they were able to present at a Good Friday service at Grace Church; it's a moving work you'll want to to include in your Holy Week experience.

Last Call for Signs of Spring!

We plan to have an "Easter Parade of Spring Gardens" again this year to conclude our online service. Pictures of your garden or of your family in Easter finery are welcome. Feel free to stretch the theme - birds building nests, emerging bulbs, early buds, ground cover in bloom, whatever you're seeing that shows new life! Please send to Diane Lesman by noon, Thursday April 1 - thank you!
