Each Lenten Service begins at 12 noon. Lunch will be served after the service. This year, Pastor David will begin our series on Ash Wednesday, March 1st.

On January 25th, Family Night Suppers will resume at 6:30pm, and the Clyburn/Whitener Class will be our host. In keeping with Grace UMC’s reputation of generous hospitality, let’s remember to prepare enough food for any guests that come! Please remember to invite everyone!
A women's prayer group, WOW (Women of the Word), is meeting Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am in the parlor. We gather for a short time of sharing Scripture, prayer requests, and prayer. We invite anyone who is interested to join us. We do not keep a record of attendance, just come when you can. After the first of the year we will begin a Bible study based on the movie "War Room". The date will be announced later. This study on the power of prayer will consist of five sessions, including clips from the movie and Scripture lessons.
The prayer group will resume meeting on January 4, 2017
