The Episcopal Church Welcomes You!

Christian Education

Sunday Mornings at Grace Episcopal Church  (September - May)

Because of COVID-19 Christian Education offerings will be on-line this fall. Watch for details here. 


Sacred Ground begins Wednesday, September 23

Register for Sacred Ground here


Sacred Ground is a race dialogue series developed by the Episcopal Church and is framed as a spiritual journey, grounded in the Christian faith – in the example of Jesus Christ and the power of scripture, prayer, God’s grace, and the Holy Spirit to help us step closer to the dream of beloved community. The focus of the materials is the history of race and racism in the US.    

 

The 10 part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.


Grace Episcopal will offer this series starting September 23.  If you are interested in joining this class please see the registration form above.

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.


Godly Play (beginning on-line in September)

Tuesdays, 3:30 - 4

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
These programs run September - May. Watch for announcements about Vacation Bible School and other summer fun!
