GRACE IS A PLACE--

 

that seeks to welcome, include, transform;

where all may encounter God in community;

where we engage God's Word through:

      scripture, tradition, and reason

      with our ears, our hearts, and our minds;

where connections happen--with God

      and neighbor and one another.

Our Mission is to learn, teach, and live God's Word, uniting in a growing family of faith and sacramental tradition and actively including and loving all.
Welcome

 

Thank you for visiting the Grace Church website. Grace is a welcoming and inclusive community of faith. Whether you are a person of steadfast faith or whether you wonder or question, you are welcome here. Come and see! Come by yourself or with a partner or spouse or your family. Come if you are young or not so young, with too much or too little to do, seeking peace or company. Travel with others on this amazing, challenging journey of our God-given and Spirit-lead life.

Wednesday Lenten Study

Beginning February 24th the Wednesday morning Study Group will be discussing our reaction(s) to the previous seven days' (Wednesday to Tuesday) meditations from our Grace Lenten Meditations Booklet, what resonated with you, why, further elaborations and related concepts that came to mind, etc.

LENTEN ZOOM 'N' STUDY

Zoom links will be sent out prior

to each session OR contact us using the red button in the header

Each Lenten season for a number of years, we have participated with other Galena churches in a weekly program of Soup 'n' Study. This year is no different--except attendees will need to bring their own soup because the sessions will be held on Zoom.

     This year, we will pick up with study plans from last year that were disrupted by the COVID lockdown.  The book and video series will be The Walk by Adam Hamilton who says:  

     I wrote this book to be a simple guide for the Christian life written for ordinary people whose faith is sometimes messy. It is written for those who wish to follow Jesus, to experience more of God in their lives, and to grow to become the people God wants them to be.
    Adam Hamilton is senior pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, one of the fastest growing, most highly visible churches in the country.

      Some of you likely have the book already since you signed up last year. For others, it is readily available online both as a hardcover or e-book.
