Choose your Breakout Sessions

For our "prayers of the people" today, we will offer six breakout sessions to share the life of Grace with you. But here's the catch: you can only choose 3, and you MUST attend the Icon Info session in order to sign the Petition for Parish Status at the end of worship.

A PRAYER FOR GRACE CHURCH

We pray that Grace Church would be emblazoned by your Holy Spirit, moving our hearts with revelation, conviction, and unspeakable joy.

Stretch out your mighty hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant, Jesus. Enable us, your servants, to speak your word with great boldness and courage, that your glory would be evident among us, and your power would sustain us.

Make yourself known to us, Lord Christ, leave us standing in awe, praising you, our awesome God, who has done great and amazing works that every soul at Grace Church will see. We ask this all for YOUR glory that YOUR kingdom will come here on earth as it is in Heaven. Amen.

Petition for Parish Status

This will be a historic decision in the life of Grace Church. On Feb. 24, we will petition the annual diocesan council to grant us parish status. This means Grace Church will stand on her own -- we elect on our own vestry, the vestry calls the church's rector, we support ourselves financially. This is the next milestone in a nine year journey for our community. Vote below.
