We are Looking for Knitters!

A Prayer Shawl is a gift to someone, to “wrap” them in prayers and bring them love, comfort and strength. Many blessings and prayers are knitted and crocheted into each shawl as they are made and then they are blessed during a worship service. If you know of someone who would benefit from a shawl please contact the Office (775.4301).

The Prayer Shawl Ministry group will meet on Wednesday, January 9 at 9:30 a.m. We would love to have you join us on this date or on the second Wednesday of each month for an hour or so to knit, crochet and pray. We have yarn, needles and patterns or bring your own. Want to learn? We will teach you!

For more information please contact the Office (775.4301).

Dec. 21, Service of Light

When: Friday, December 21, 6:00 p.m.

Where: Grace Church Chapel

Service of Light in the Midst of Darkness — The seasons of Advent and Christmas can be painful for some. It may be the first holiday without family members or friends who have recently died. The strong emphasis on family and togetherness can emphasize the loneliness of those who are separated from loved ones. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of employment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation – all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrations of the season. Space and time is needed to acknowledge sadness, grief, isolation, and concern that may be very present. The Service of Light in the Midst of Darkness provides an opportunity to do that.
