YOUTH PLAY: Our annual Youth Play is tonight, Sunday December 16th at 6:00 p.m. This year’s play is called “Humbug” It is filled with funny characters that will prove to be inspirational as well as hilarious. We will start off the evening once again with dinner. This year the youth will be serving homemade beef & noodles, mashed potatoes, green beans accompanied with a dinner roll and of course lots of delicious desserts. Then sit back and relax for a fun filled show with our very talented youth. You can still purchase tickets today at the door. Prices are $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for ages 4-10, with 3 and under free. If you have any questions or would like to help in any way please contact Cindy Spice (348-7061)
GRACE EPISCOPAL CHURCH INVITES YOU TO HOLDEN EVENING PRAYER. Beginning Wednesday evening, December 5th, Grace Episcopal Church will again have its weekly Advent Soup Supper at 6:00 p.m. followed by Holden Evening Prayer at 7:00 p.m. Holden Evening Prayer is a form of traditional Vespers developed in 1986 at Holden Village in Chelsea, Washington. This beautiful setting, by Marty Haugen, is easily sung by the congregation, includes scripture readings and prayers, and the service lasts about ½ hour. Holden Evening Prayer has been an integral part of Grace’s Lenten and Advent seasons for many years. We hope you will join us on Wednesday, December 19th. This is the perfect way to prepare your hearts and minds for Christmas. If you plan on going to the soup dinner before then they need to know ahead of time to assure they have enough. Let me know if you have any questions.
PAGEANT PRACTICE AFTER CHURCH TODAY! If you are in the pageant please stay after church today. THE PAGEANT WILL BE PERFORMED AT THE 4PM CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE.
DON’T FORGET TO GET YOUR CROSS & SWORD ARTICLES IN NO LATER THAN THURSDAY DECEMBER 20th. THANK YOU.
