  • Adult Domestic Mission Trip – October 21-22

    adult missionsCan you read the writing on the wall in the photo? It says “Grace Anglican at Work.” Last October, a group of us traveled to Galveston, grabbed tools, and went to work. In partnership with Galveston Urban Mission, we contributed to the restoration of old, decaying buildings in an economically disadvantaged part of town. Our hearts were touched by their mission of community development, as well as by their solid leadership team. And so, we are going again. This year’s trip will be October 21-22. Come join us. The cost is $25 per person, which covers drinks, snacks, lunch and a T-shirt. You will be responsible for supper and one night at a motel. Serving the poor is what Christians do. You will leave a lot dirtier and a lot more tired than when you came. But you will also return home with the special satisfaction and joy that comes when we serve others. We will have a sign-up sheet in church soon. For more information, contact Sharon Cunningham at

  • Confirmation Classes – Now through Nov. 13

    confirmationConfirmation is an ancient ceremony in which the bishop lays hands on someone and invites the Holy Spirit to fill them. For participants, confirmation is a mature, public affirmation of faith. It is for those baptized as infants who now wish to confirm they believe. Most often, these are teens. Adults who would like to reaffirm their faith are also invited to participate in the confirmation service. Classes are held to prepare all candidates and begin on October 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 am. It will be a 6-week course with the last week being the actual confirmation. If you or your child are interested in confirmation, contact Henry Covert, The service of Confirmation will be led by our bishop, The Rt. Rev. Clark Lowenfield on November 13.

  • Girl’s Youth Bible Study – Monday evenings

    beautiful encountersStarting Monday October 3rd, the girls of Ignite will be getting their very own bible study. It will run from 7:30-9:00PM at Grace Place except every second Monday (Abide in Me Prayer meeting Mondays) it will be at the Covert’s house. Diane Covert will be leading the study for the girls. The study will be on the book “Beautiful Encounters” by Erin Davis. Henry Covert will have the books on Sunday and they cost $12. Below is a description of the study:

    “Beautiful Encounters: The Presence of Jesus Changes Everything – Student Book” by Erin Davis is a Bible study designed for girls in grades 7 to 12. When we encounter Jesus – really experience Him – we discover a longing to connect with Him. As we begin to really know Him, our faith and character blossom. Offering a flexible format with four-, six-, or eight-week study options, Beautiful Encounters examines 11 New Testament women who were changed by Jesus Christ. These women experienced the same needs, emotions, and longings that girls experience today. As girls realize this, they will see how a beautiful encounter with Jesus can transform them as well.”

  • Adult Forum

    Jesus through the eyse of MarkFollowing Jesus is challenging. But guess what—it’s always been that way! The Gospel according to Mark was written to Christians like us who struggled to follow Jesus though a world that considered them to be odd and out of step. Eventually they became a threat to the status quo and were persecuted as traitors to the Roman Empire. Mark’s Gospel comforted their growing fear by showing again and again just who this Jesus is that they were following. And his Gospel strengthened them by describing what they must do to follow Jesus as closely as they could.

    Mark’s Gospel offers the same comfort and strength to followers of Jesus today—you! Do you feel out of step when “Merry Christmas” is replaced by “Happy Holidays?” Are you unsettled by Sunday morning soccer matches for your kids or grandkids? Have family members become distant because you really believe what the Bible has to say?

    Then join us beginning September 11 as we begin to see Jesus through the eyes of Mark. Grace Anglican’s Adult Forum begins the 2016-2017 study year with a 17-part course on this deep and rich account of Jesus’s work to save humankind from eternal separation from God. Bring your Bibles, your hunger to be comforted by Jesus, and your desire to follow him as closely as you can. Mark will not disappoint you.

    The Adult Forum meets at 9:30 on Sunday mornings in the hallway to the right of the nursery.
