PT TAYLOR / DCU VIRTUAL WALK AGAINST HUNGER OCTOBER 2020

posted by Jill Donnelly on 2020-10-09

The Hope Center serves as a provider of groceries, daily meals, utility assistance, and blood pressure screenings to people in need. But it is more than those services. The Hope Center shines as an affirmation of human dignity, the oneness of all and the Goodness and Beauty of God. Out of an abundance of caution and the current guidelines, The Hope Center will be holding a virtual walk this year. For donations, go to https://dcuhopecenter.org.


JOIN US FOR ZOOM BIBLE STUDY

posted by Jill Donnelly on 2020-09-24

THE GOSPEL OF MARK BEGINS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15TH We meet on Thursday evenings at 7 pm and would love for you to join us. We spend an hour together reading the assigned text for the week and then discussing what we hear in God's word. We ask questions, sharing what we know and admitting what we don't know. Zoom study is relaxed and we laugh a lot, although it's different from in person study. We learn to share the microphone, listen more carefully, and form a community following Christ. Our next study is the Gospel of Mark, which will be our Gospel in Year B beginning in Advent. If you are interested in this study please contact Robin+ at rteasley@christandgrace.org If you are interested in this study but cannot join us on Thursday evenings, there is a possibility of a daytime Zoom class, or even an in person class in the parish hall with safe distancing and face masks. Please let Robin+ know if this would be helpful for you. The Thursday Evening Zoom Bible Study on the Gospel of Mark begins October 15th.


CHURCH FOR CHILDREN DURING THE PANDEMIC

posted by Jill Donnelly on 2020-09-17

It's taken us some time to learn new technology and find the right resources but we are all in this pandemic together! Please check out our new YouTube Channel for children - Christ and Grace Kids There is a welcome video and a Virtual Vacation Bible School from Gina Mead available for when your kids need a break from school work. In this 3 part series we will be learning about how Jesus is here for us yesterday, today, and tomorrow. There will a Bible story, some questions to answer, and a craft to enjoy. And because the lessons are all online you and your family can watch and participate anytime. Soon we will begin posting an exciting new Sunday School series called, "What's in the Box?" Each week there will be a short introduction from Ms. Gina and then a wonderful member of our congregation will show the children what is in the box and explore a Bible story and lesson through the video. "We hope all of our little ones are able to join us as we embark on this new online journey of staying connected together as a church and with our Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." Ms. Gina

WHERE WILL WE SIT?

posted by Jill Donnelly on 2020-07-26

When you arrive for worship, an usher will help you find a seat. We must remain six feet apart at all times, therefore every other pew will not be used. Cushions have been removed to allow easy cleaning after each use. Please bring a cushion from home each week if you would like. Please see the photos for an idea of how the ushers are able to seat us so that we all maintain a safe distance. At the conclusion of the service the ushers will direct one pew at a time toward the exit. We appreciate your patience as you wait, and we hope you will enjoy the music or use the time for additional prayer.


WHO'S BEHIND THE MASK?

posted by Jill Donnelly on 2020-07-26

When we regather for in person worship, masks are required. It's one way that we can love our neighbor. If you have a mask, please wear it. If you need a mask, we have beautiful masks created by Marigene Little. They come in all sorts of colors and designs and can be washed and worn over and over. Eventually we will begin to recognize one another even with our masks on and we will look fabulous doing it, thanks to Marigene!
