Grace Church's Food for Friends shelves are nearly empty as well. Last Saturday, we responded to a call for donations from the Ukrainian Church in Whippany. We cleared out our shelves and dropped off food and supplies that will be sent to Ukraine for the refugees and troops. We need your help restocking! Please bring donations for the Military Assistance Pantry this Sunday, or drop them off in the Grace Lobby any time this week.

Thank you for your generosity.

  • High protein Soups

Rite 13 is a ceremony that celebrates a child's rite of passage into adolescence. Rite 13 offers a way to mark the transition to adolescence while saving the rite of confirmation for high schoolers who have had more time to grapple with what they believe. Rite 13 is a complement to Confirmation, not a replacement.  This is an opportunity for families and friends to gather and recognize the maturation of our youth. The ceremony is for youth turning 13 before the next school year starts or who have turned 13 since last July. Most who participate are in 7th or 8th grade.

 

An application form for participation in the next ceremony of September 2019 can be submitted to the church office (see form).

Worship update

In light of the recent COVID surge in our area, we are encouraging home worship using our live-stream.  This is especially true if you have any COVID symptoms, are unvaccinated, are immunocompromised, or have had COVID exposure in the past 5 days. 

 

For people who worship in person, please note that masks will be worn at all times (covering the nose too, please!) and that social distancing is critically important. For safety reasons, worship is shortened and there is no Coffee Hour at this time. The 8AM and 4PM services are very brief, spoken services.  Minimal music is offered at the 10AM service.
