Grace will again host the Community Lenten Services and lunch each Wednesday at noon from Ash Wednesday through Holy Week March 23rd. Pastors from different denominations will bring the message each week and our own Tommy Bishop has planned special music. Please view the schedule of events with details of speakers and lunch menus on the event section of our web-site. We look forward to seeing you!
Grace UMC is pleased to announce a convenient new way to make your regular offerings. With our new electronic giving program, you can easily set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. We encourage you to set up a schedule of recurring contributions. It’s convenient for you and provides much-needed consistency for our church.
If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. Even when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, our church will continue to receive your contributions on an uninterrupted basis.
To become an electronic giver, you may simply click the DONATE button on this site or download the Joyfully2UMC app on your Smart phone and select Grace United Methodist Church to follow the easy instructions.
The Methodist Youth Fellowship of Grace U.M.C. has a special project for the Lenten season this year. For a $10 donation to the youth group, they will install a wooden cross in your yard. About three feet tall, the crosses are made from treated wood and come complete with decorative drapes for the three seasons of Lent. They will be built by MYF members Clint Smallwood, Grant Harris, and Grayson Fallaw.
The first color for Lent is purple, starting on Ash Wednesday Feb. 10 through Wednesday March 16, black is the color for Thursday-Friday March 24-25, and white on Easter Sunday March 27. For information, call Preston Morton, 843-457-3902.

Nothing is more beautiful than a smile on a child's face unless it's the smile on a WARM child's face. Circle of Hope has distributed more than 130 coats to children in Union area schools this winter. These are the coats donated by Frist Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg last year. Members of Circle of Hope contacted school guidance counselors to receive a list of children in need and delivered those coats to individual schools. Grace is truly a church of caring people. Thank you to all who were involved in this mission work.
In Christian Love, Pat Owens
