Dear People of Grace,
We are so excited to begin our new program year on September 12, with one service at 10AM and our Annual Meeting immediately following. The pandemic has taught us to be flexible and we will use that agility in the coming year. As St. Paul wrote to the early churches, we have learned to be content and we have learned to rely on the presence of Christ.
Our schedule may have to be adapted as time passes as we respond to the direction of our Diocese and the status of the infection rate in our surrounding community. But we rejoice in our life together, and remain committed to worshipping God, forming our faith, and serving others.
