    Changes in our Worship Services You may notice differences in our liturgy

    this summer

    We are using Eucharistic Prayer I from Enriching Our Worship for our Sunday morning services this summer. EOW is an approved supplement to the

    Book of Common Prayer.

    This liturgy is intended to expand the language, images and metaphors used in worship in a more

    contemporary and gender inclusive way.

    We hope this prayer will help deepen and strengthen your encounter with Christ through

    our Sunday morning services at Grace Church.

    Summer Sundays @ 5

    Sunday, July 29 & August 26 / 5 p.m.

    All ages are invited to engage in a casual worship service with Holy Communion in Graces Chapel of the Apostles. After the service, anyone who wishes to attend will travel to a local restaurant to enjoy dinner and fellowship together. (Everyone

    pays their own way.)

    Community of Hope Training Chris Kurth and Deborah Caby lead a new Community of Hope training session at Grace Church this fall. COH is a non-denominational ministry designed to provide pastoral care to the elderly, the lonely, the sick, the hungry, the imprisoned and the young. This ministry will enhance and enrich your spiritual formation through teaching, prayers and a network of support

    shaped by the theology of St. Benedict.

    The next training begins September 8 and continues weekly on Monday evenings through November, with dinner provided. If you would like more information about COH, please contact

    Chris Kurth, Deborah Caby or Fr. Todd.
