Grace Episcopal Church 
Weekly Update
January 8, 2019

Please join us this Saturday, January 12th at 5:00 pm for our monthly Community Prayer Service. If you haven't had a chance to attend, you are encouraged to do so. We gather once a month on the Second Saturday, remembering that our faith brings us back again and again to God's love - no matter what we may be going through. Together we light candles in prayer, sing simple hymns, and take communion. All are welcome so spread the word!

Let's Get Cooking!

We have two great opportunities for you to get involved with a couple of new ministries at Grace.

First Fridays
First Fridays is a new ministry where we will gather on the first Friday of each month at 9am in the Parish Hall to bake muffins for our members who are not able to attend church on a regular basis, who may be sick, or who may just need a little pick-me-up. After our baking is complete each month, we will deliver our treats while they are still warm! All ingredients and supplies will be provided along with a different recipe each month. Every one is welcome! The dates for the spring are as follows:

February 1, March 1, April 5, and May 3
9:00 - 10:30am

Stock Up for Coffee Hour
Keep your oven mitts on...we will meet again on Saturday, February 2nd to bake goodies for coffee hour. Our goal is to stock the freezer to provide treats for the coming weeks. Dig out your favorite recipe and join us from 9:00-12:00 in the Parish House kitchen. Basic baking supplies will be provided. Please contact Betsy Wright with any questions.
