It's almost time for our second annual SUDAN MISSION YARD SALE at Grace, scheduled for July 11, 8:30 am to 2 pm. This year, proceeds from the sale will send three South Sudanese youths, John, Mary and William, to high school for the 2021 academic year (January to December). The goal is $3,500. All kinds of resalable items are needed for the sale. Items may be dropped off in the Scout Room, downstairs in the Parish Hall. If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can send a check to Grace Episcopal Church with "South Sudan Students" in the memo line, or make an online donation by selecting "Community Outreach" from the drop down menu on the church website at
From Our Minister of Music
Singing The Lord's Song
Wonder how we're making music these day?
Check out this video about Grace's music ministry published by Virginia Theological Seminary. Their Center for Lifelong Learning is offering a series of music ministers sharing about music during Covid. You'll see familiar faces and spaces: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Irs0TbdPZuA&t=6s
We are finding ways to share music and song. Many of you have noticed that the choir keeps contributing to prerecorded music for services. For now, we will keep doing that, as we cannot gathering as singers in our liturgies. This too shall pass. In the meantime, if you play keyboard or a stringed instrument, when we start to regather, those could be played in the sanctuary. I'd love for folk to volunteer! If you sing or play a wind instrument and want to do a recording, please let me know. If you want to, but don't know how, I can help you, and we'll figure it out!
