Contemporary Wednesday Worship begins September 13

All are welcome at this family-friendly, contemporary worship service at 5:45 p.m. Children enrolled in Grace Bible School attend worship with their parents for the opening hymn, liturgy, prayer of the day, and children’s sermon. At the conclusion of the children’s sermon, students and teachers are dismissed to their large-group gathering in Friendship Hall for music time, after which they proceed to their individual classrooms for a lesson. When the service has concluded, parents pick up their children from their classrooms. (Parents may not ‘drop’ their children off at the door, leaving them unsupervised.) Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and third Sundays of the month and the following Wednesdays. The Nursery is open and staffed for children 3 years old and younger. The Pray-Ground will still be available.

Rally Wednesday, September 13, we begin worship each week at 5:45 p.m. with the GraceAbounds band leading us with contemporary worship music. The music will span everything from the more contemporary worship songs to the most traditional hymns of the church, the messages will be shorter spin-offs from the weekly lectionary with more community interaction and conversation, and we will introduce more liturgy and different kinds of prayers.

Services are led by Pastors John Matthews and Andrea Roske-Metcalfe.

Summer Music Series, 7:00 p.m.
(June, July, August)

We completed our 16th year of our summer music series. Join us again summer 2018 as we continue this wonderful tradition as we welcome the multi-talented John Koziol, who will coordinate the talented musicians joining us at various points over the summer.

A mini concert follows the service each week. The evening ends with Wednesday sundaes and fellowship.

Sponsorships are needed for the cost of these guest musicians. A check for $450 written to Grace marked “summer music” sponsors one of these wonderful evenings, or sponsor half an evening or make a weekly contribution. We appreciate whatever you can do. Contact Pat in the church office, p.johnson@graceofav.org, to sponsor or with questions.
