We celebrated "God's Work, Our Hands" Sunday by organizing a work day with St. Stephen Lutheran Church. Our members teamed up to complete painting and yard work on an InnBetween home for a family experiencing homelessness. The InnBetween Program of Lutheran Social Services of North Florida provides homes and support services for as long as two years to help families transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Workers tackled the project on September 13. They transformed the house with fresh paint and new sod. Many thanks to all who offered a helping hand! See more pictures here.
Ash Wednesday Services are at 7 p.m. We are continuing our long-standing Lenten observance at Grace, featuring soup suppers at 6 p.m.
The sign-up board for the soup suppers is located in the fellowship hall. Please plan to bring a soup to share each week. Salads, bread and desserts are also welcome. Iced tea and ice water will be provided.

On February 15, 2015 the Church Council met with the Call Committee to discuss their recommendation for calling our next pastor. The Call Committee provided thorough information about their interviews, site visit and reasons for their choice. That combined meeting was followed by a council meeting to vote to proceed with calling the recommended pastor. With an affirming vote, the Church Council will continue the process of discerning God's will for our congregation, and its next Pastor, by interviewing this candidate in the next couple of weeks. After this next step in the process, the Council will determine whether to recommend the candidate to the congregation for a Call as the congregation's next pastor. In Service, Daryl
