The Seven Last Words of Christ 

with Joanne Robblee


A three part series of Reflections on The Seven Last Words of Christ from Jon Meacham's The Hope of Glory. The events of Good Friday and Easter reveal essential truths about Christianity. Beginning with “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” we will discuss how these words epitomize Jesus’s message of love, not hate; grace, not rage; and, rather than vengeance, extraordinary mercy.

Christian Education for Youth 

Sundays, 1 - 2 pm, (ZOOM) (September - May)

With Megan Hess and Sharon Massie


Weekdays   


EfM (Education for Ministry) September - May

Education for Ministry (EfM), a four-year program of theological education at-a-distance, has begun its fall session here at Grace Episcopal Church. As the emphasis on lay ministry has grown, the EfM program has played a crucial role in developing theologically informed, knowledgeable lay leaders. The program is sponsored by the University of the South and since its inception in 1975, more than 60,000 people have participated.  If you're interested in becoming a part of this group, contact Sharon Massie, Program Director, for more information. A new case will form in Fall 2021.


Godly Play 

Wednesdays, 4 pm ZOOM (September - May)

Godly Play provides a time and a space for children to engage with God and with the story of God’s people in the Bible. A Godly Play session includes a time to gather in a circle to listen to a story, a time of wondering, and a time for children to respond to the story through art or creative play.

Children and Youth
In non COVID times Programs for Children and Youth usually run September - May. We hope to resume programs in September 2021.

 

Watch for announcements about Vacation Bible School and other summer fun!
