HEAVEN & EARTH - A CONCERT
Grace UMC is excited to host the Kinnara Ensemble for their concert - "Heaven & Earth" - on Saturday, September 22nd at 7pm in the sanctuary. This professional vocal ensemble (of which Grace's minister of music and worship arts, Michael Dauterman, is a member) is based in Princeton, NJ. However, they have been giving concerts in Metro Atlanta and surrounding areas for the last year.

The perfect setting for this beautiful music, Grace is the first church to host the Kinnara Ensemble in Midtown Atlanta! Come listen to the ensemble explore the ideas of heaven, earth, and the space between the two. Tickets are only $10, available at the door or by visiting herebit.ly/kinnaragrace.
 
Also, we are looking for a few generous donors to sponsor Kinnara's appearance at Grace. To support this performance, please put "Music Fund" on your check's memo line or in the description box if donating online ( bit.ly/DonateToGrace). Any amount of your generosity is greatly appreciated!
