BROADWAY BRUNCH PREMIERE: THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Do you have your tickets yet for Grace's very first Broadway Brunch?

THIS Sunday, November 18th, we are premiering this exciting, insightful, fun, and delicious way of worshipping with scenes from Tennessee Williams' classic, The Glass Menagerie, directed by Julie Skrzypek with brunch provided by Red Velvet Catering & Events.
 
Tickets are available via EventBrite for a suggested donation of only $5.00. Buy your tickets and learn more here. (bit.ly/BroadwayBrunchNovember2018) 

If the suggested donation presents a financial burden, please contact either pastor candi (cdugas at graceonponce.org) or Pastor Stacey (pastor at graceonponce.org). We always do everything that we can for there to be enough space at the tables we set at Grace Church.

Broadway Brunch (BB) is Grace's version of dinner theatre, a creative worship approach that integrates liturgical and theatrical arts. It builds on our rich, Christian tradition of combining theme-rich storytelling with a tasty meal as we connect with ourselves, God, and each other.

We'll feature some of Atlanta's most talented artists - directors, actors, and playwrights as well, along with some of Broadway's classic dramas, comedies, and musicals. We look forward to enjoying good stories with good messages with you every 3rd Sunday at Grace.

GREENING OF GRACE SERVICE
It's time again to deck the halls at Grace!

And yes, we're doing it on Sunday morning, November 25th, beginning during our traditional worship time (11am), remembering that our work is another way to worship God.

We'll have doughnuts and coffee to go along with our caroling before we start hanging ornaments and wreaths. Greening of Grace is always a really great, fun time to (re)connect with each other and new members of our community!

RSVP to pastor candi so we'll know how many doughnuts to get - via email (cdugas at graceonponce.org) or phone (404.876.2679). "Deck the halls with boughs of holly ..." See you there!
CHILDREN-CENTERED WORSHIP DEBUT
"Through the eyes of a child ..."

At Grace, we not only create space to hear our youngest voices alongside our own - we do so as well for them to share their thoughts, ideas, and designs for our worship experiences.

Join us for our very first worship experience when everything we do and say will be especially curated for us and led by our children - Sunday, December 2nd, 11am, in the Sanctuary.
