Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 17. We will be having a live-streamed service that evening, but without the imposition of ashes, for obvious reasons. But I want to offer you the opportunity to receive the ashes that day, so from noon until 1 p.m. I will be available in the church parking lot for those who wish to receive them, in the same place where we distribute communion on communion Sundays I will administer the ashes using a Q-tip lightly sprayed with olive oil so as to limit physical contact. It might help your decision about taking advantage of this opportunity to know that Pastor Repp received his first COVID vaccination on January 21, and will receive the second shot on February 11.
We’re so glad to have you with us here at Grace! Is this is your first time joining us, or have become a frequent visitor, here are a few resources you may find helpful.
We will hold our annual congregational budget meeting on January 24 at 10:45 via Zoom, to approve our 2021 budget. The budget will be sent out via email this coming week, and there will be a budget forum at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday, January 17, to help prepare for this vote. Please use the Coffee
Hour Zoom link for the budget forum. (The congregational meeting link will be provided the week of the meeting.)
