Happenings at Grace of God 

Lenten Evening Prayer
The Vineyard and the Cross
Begining Ash Wednesday, February 18th, we will worship together on Wednesday evenings in Lent at 7pm. Our theme this year will center on the vineyard images in the Old and New Testaments that reveal God's love for his people. The planting, the pruning, grafting, harvesting, pressing... it all finds fulfillments in the cross where we find out life in Christ.

A NEW Adult Bible Study
An examination of the seven last works of Christ from the cross
Sunday mornings at 10:15 am

Alms Bowls available to collect loose change
Every Wednesday evening in Lent we will collect a special offering to support our Tanzanian scholarships. Coins may be collected in the “alms bowls” (or any receptacle!) and added to a larger collection during worship. The sound of coins clinking is fun! Offerings of cash and checks are also accepted and will help us reach our 2015 goal of $1341.35.

Moments to Remember

The most memorable evening of the year and the biggest youth fundraiser will be held April 19th at 6pm! Mark your calendars.

On Ash Wednesday the church began its journey toward the celebration of the death and resurrection of Christ a time in which we remember our baptism where we are buried with Christ into his death and receive new life. This year, the Sundays in Lent lead us to focus on five covenants God makes in the Old Testament and to use them as lenses through which to view baptism. The baptismal covenant is made with us individually, but the new life we are given in baptism is for the sake of the whole world.
