Sunday School: Try Something NEW!

Sunday School advocates met and we wanted to include you on our news. You are hereby invited to participate, even try something new!


  • On the 5th Sunday of any month along with Easter for 2019,
    we have a Bible Trivia Challenge that MAY include, drawing, charades, singing or just ask and answering questions.
    Our next Challenge day for ALL ages is 3/31 at 9:50am

  •  Our children are divided into 3 age levels and we want you to think of who you know, that you can invite to Sunday School at 9:50am (earlier for one of Ralph’s hot cinnamon rolls) and would have fun expanding their Christian education with Mrs. Susan, Mrs. Maxine, Mrs. Shannon, Mrs. Betsy, Mrs. Theresa, Mr. Ralph or Mr. Bernard.

Seeds of Hope Returns to Grace

Grace has arranged with two farmers to come and set up their
Seeds of Hope Farmers Market
every Saturday beginning on June 8th from 9 – 1.

Please come out and support the farmers with your purchases of fresh produce. That is wonderful news since most of the recipients of the vouchers last year were unable to use their vouchers.

Now talking about the SOH vouchers we need volunteers to be able to hand them out to the people that will come on Tuesday, June 4th from 9-1. There is a signup sheet in the Narthex for you to sign up to help. If you have done it before you know how easy and rewarding it is. If you have not been able to do it before please consider doing it you can be taught that morning. Unfortunately Bill will not be able to help but he will be there to help any way that he can.

2019 General Conference Passes Traditional Plan

Click here for this article in its entirety and news from the General Conference.

After hours of delaying tactics by opponents, the United Methodist General Conference 2019 delegates passed The Traditional Plan 438 to 384. A last-ditch effort to bring the One Church Plan back was defeated in the morning and was followed by efforts to amend the Traditional Plan to address constitutionality issues raised by the Judicial Council, the church’s top court. The Rev. Tim McClendon, South Carolina, called for a vote on the Traditional Plan as amended, which affirms the church’s current bans on ordaining LGBTQ clergy and officiating at or hosting same-sex marriage.
