DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

Adult Sunday School

We believe that learning together is an important part of Christian growth. That is why we set aside an hour every Sunday for the entire church to grow through learning.  In class readings guide our conversations as we learn more about ourselves, our faith, and each other.  Our Sunday School curriculum is Living the Good News which is lectionary based that and follows the weekly readings of the church.

During Lent, we will be reading Adam Hamilton's 24 Hours that Changed the World - 40 Days of Reflection. At each session, we will discuss the prior week's reflections and their impact on our life.

 

Holy Eucharist

In the Book of Common Prayer, the whole service is entitled the Holy Eucharist. The first part of the service is designated the Word of God. It usually includes the entrance rite, the lessons and gradual psalm, the gospel, the sermon, the Nicene Creed, the prayers of the people, the confession of sin and absolution, and the peace. The second portion of the service is designated the Holy Communion. It includes the offertory, the consecration of the bread and wine in the Great Thanksgiving, the communion of the people, and the concluding prayers of thanksgiving and dismissal. A blessing may be given prior to the dismissal.

 

Fellowship Hour

Following our Sunday Eucharist, we gather for food and fellowship in the Parish Hall.  At Grace Episcopal Church, we are more than just a community, we are family.  

Sunday Evening Study

 

During Lent at 5:30 p.m. on Sundays during make plans to attend Evening Study.  They will be reading and discussing A Spring in the Desert.  This Lenten ​devotional by Bishop Elect Frank Logue and his wife, Victoria, that explores the ways our faith speaks to us providing water, in even those most barren times of our lives.

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer offers an opportunity for spiritual enrichment and growth.  Our centering prayer group meets on Wednesdays at 4:30 and is over promptly at 6:00. Centering Prayer is sitting quietly so that God can speak to you.  It is a wonderful way to connect to God in the busyness of our lives.

Choir Practice

Lift your voice and sing praises to the Lord!  If you'd like to join the choir, it meets on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm in the Parish Hall.

Wednesday Eucharist & Lenten Supper

During Lent, we will hold a Wednesday evening Eucharist beginning at 5:30 p.m.  As part of the service, we reflect on the Lenten Meditations 2020 book which is available for free at church.  Following the service, we enjoy a Lenten supper prepared by the Men of Grace.

Stations of the Cross

On Fridays at 5:30 p.m. during Lent, meet in the church as we follow the Stations of the Cross, which is a series of images embroidered onto tapestries representing successive incidents during Jesus' progress from his condemnation by Pilate to his crucifixion and burial, before which we will perform devotions.
