The Gospel
According to Matthew 18:21-35

Peter came and said to Jesus, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times

“For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. When he began the reckoning, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him; and, as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, and payment to be made. So the slave fell on his knees before him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.

’ And out of pity for him, the lord of that slave released him and forgave him the debt. But that same slave, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat, he said, ‘Pay what you owe.’ Then his fellow slave fell down and pleaded with him, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’
But he refused; then he went and threw him into prison until he would pay the debt. When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked slave! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me.

Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I had mercy on you?’ And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt. So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

Ushers Needed - Grace Episcopal Church

Good morning church family,
I am Camille Worrell, Head Usher. I am reaching out because I have been having significant difficulties with the schedule. I currently have a very small number of available ushers and this group is being overworked. If you are available to be an usher, please reach out. It is not a difficult job. It only entails taking a count of those present and ensuring that people sign in, the passing of the offertory baskets (we now use socially distant baskets on long poles), ringing the bells at the correct times, and guiding fellow parishioners to communion. All of this can be done while keeping safe distances from each other.  If you are able to be put on the schedule, please reach out to me I'm hoping to return to the four team rotation, and I am hoping that each team will have at least 3 members. Thank you so much for considering this.

Altar Guild Needs Volunteers
The Altar guild is responsible for preparing for all worship services, all sacramental rites and of course the Sunday Eucharist.
