Connect Group January 29th The best way to get to know other people at Grace and to grow spiritually is through our Connect Groups! This season of Epiphany we're reading the Gospel of John, one of the most loved and important Gospels. Connect Groups meet 10:00 - 11:00 am Wednesday at the church. Contact John Gibson for more info!

Womens’s Meeting Sunday February 16th Women of all ages are invited to meet between services in the Parish Hall to discuss what to do for the first half of this year.

Men's Breakfast Sunday February 16th All men are invited to Bojangles on Business Hwy 70 in Clayton for good food, camaraderie and a brief discussion of Scripture from 8 - 9 am.

Explore All those interested in becoming members of Grace or transferring to the congregation from another Episcopal church are asked to attend this class that meets from 12:30 - 5:00 pm Sunday February 16th. Lunch is included. For more information, contact John Gibson. Sign up in the lobby.

Burning of the Palms Sunday February 23rd We conclude the season after the Epiphany with the burning of the palms that we carried in triumph on Palm Sunday 2019. We will process outside after the 9:30 for this moving ceremony. The ashes from these palms will be used for the imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday February 26th. People who attend the 9:30 service are invited to stay and those who attend the 11:11 are invited to come early. Bring your palms from 2019!

Ash Wednesday February 26th The holy season of Lent, a time to refocus our lives on God, begins with the imposition of ashes and Eucharist at 12:15 pm and 7:00 pm. All are invited to this important time of reflection and renewal.

Bp. Sam's Visitation March 8th Our diocesan bishop will be with us to receive, to confirm and to recognize transfers into the church. If you would like to become a part of the church, please contact John Gibson as soon as possible.
