Bishop Visits Grace Episcopal Sunday

Friday, June 20, 2014

This Sunday brings the Bishop for his annual visit to Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave., and at his request, there will be one worship service at 10 a.m. There will be food afterwards and the chance to welcome not only the Bishop but also those who have been confirmed, received, or who have made a confession of faith.
 
Those who are coming into the Episcopal Church through any of the above means are asked to meet with the Bishop at 9:10 a.m. in the Merritt Room.

Vestry and clergy will meet with him after the reception, around 11:45 a.m. in the Merritt Room.
  
Although the 3-session study of Michael Coogan’s God and Sex: What the Bible Really Says began two days ago it’s not too late to attend.  There are still two sessions left. Join the group in the Merritt Room at 6 p.m. on the next two Wednesdays and learn "what’s real and what’s hooey about The Holy Writ’s take on sexual matters."  The meetings include a potluck meal.  Bring your food to the 3rd floor at 6 p.m.
