This weekend Grace will celebrate Earth Day in lots of ways! We’ll have a cleaning of the Grace grounds on Saturday from 8:30-11:00am. Bring rakes, a fork rake if you have one to help with mulch, and be sure to leave some room for a donut or two! Grace Youth will be going on a hike, leaving Grace on Saturday at noon and returning at 3:00pm. On Sunday we’ll have services at 8:15 and 10:30am with Forum Hour at 9:15. Our guest speaker at the Forum will be Dr Brian Bodenbender, Professor of Geology at Hope College. He and Grace member, Dr Ed Hanson will lead a presentation and discussion on environmental concerns and care. As a part of our 10:30 service we will process outside and bless the grounds of Grace, stopping at three stations to sing, hear about actions for earth care, and sing. The 10:30 service will be followed by a special Coffee Hour, outside if weather permits. The day will end with an Organ Recital with Dr. Stephen White, Music Director at St Thomas Episcopal Church in Battle Creek as our guest recitalist. Join us as we take good care, process, bless, make music, and share!
Tulip Time is near! We’ve got LOTS of slots to fill for Marketplaatz, so it’s time to get your Dutch on, Grace Church. Come on board to help with our ONLY youth ministry fundraiser of the year . It’s fun. We come together to help Grace youth and serve Dutch food to guests of this festival (click this link for a video of food served, complete with Tulip Time tunes.) Follow this link to sign up for some shifts! Thanks, Grace!
