Join us this Sunday for Bishop Hougland’s semi-annual visitation to Grace! He will be the preacher and presider at the 10:00 service sharing the vision and hopes of the Diocese of Western Michigan. After that service he will join us (and we hope you all do too!) for the next step in our strategic planning process. We’ve identified five major strategic themes based on congregational input sessions: Reaching Out, Welcoming In, Connecting, Engaging and Caring for Creation. The next step is to discern together what we want to DO in each of those areas. Come welcome Bishop Hougland, share your ideas and help us discern our next steps. Youth are invited to participate. Pizza, kids’ program and nursery provided.
Join us on Sunday, September 13th as we kick off a new program year. Services of Holy Eucharist will be at 8:15 and 10:00. The 10:00 service will include a Blessing of the Backpacks, prayers for the beginning of the school year, and the final collection of school supplies to be donated to local schools as the year begins. The Annual Parish Photo will be taken on the parish lawn at 11:15 and the Parish Picnic (lunch provided by Fellowship Commission) complete with Kick Off Kick Ball will begin about 11:30 at Moran Park. Dress comfortably, bring your pack for the blessing, have a lawn chair handy and come join the fun! All are welcome.
We welcome you to Grace’s website and encourage you to come for a visit! Grace is a congregation of about 450 members committed to worship, hospitality, education, outreach, and care. All those who come to Grace are welcome at our Sunday table and the many tables we set throughout the week for our programs, projects and worship experiences. As Episcopalians, we’re a part of the Diocese of Western Michigan, the larger Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion. Enjoy our website. Contact us. Visit us. At Grace, the doors are open for all.
