Thank you for serving!
Many thanks to everyone that served our Grace members, family and friends during the Christmas Eve and Christmas Eve Eve services. It takes many hands to get us through those evenings. It went very smoothly due to the graciousness of all who helped. Special thanks to our head ushers, Rick Webb, Gary Chura and Brad Delay and to our Communion Coordinators, Kathie Pelan, Tracy Hemsath and Walt Cooper.

You asked, Grace is answering! Weekly Chair Yoga sessions begin Sunday, January 5,

Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga done sitting on a chair or standing on the ground while using the chair for support. It is beneficial if you have limited mobility, want to improve flexibility, strengthen muscles, reduce stress, increase bone density, work on balance, expand lung capacity, and have fun!
Mark you Calendars for a Hospitality Workshop
on Saturday, January 25 from 8:30 to 10:30am at Grace UMC. A simple breakfast will be provided as we share and learn about cultivating a Culture of Hospitality in the church.
Glenda Davis, a local actress, play-writer, puppeteer, event planner, and church outreach coordinator will share her passion for the ministry of Hospitality. Growing up in Appalachia, Glenda fondly remembers the excitement and anticipation when the clarion call went out, “Company’s coming.” Daily she witnessed the simple, “Howdy, come up on the porch and sit a while. Can I get you some tea?” Since then, she has studied and observed models of hospitality in churches and business. She will provide ideas for refreshing and renewing the ministry of Hospitality in the church.
Everyone is Welcome and invited.
Come eat, share, learn and be inspired!
