SECOND CHANCE SUNDAY AT GRACE

Last Sunday, May 26, was another great day at Grace! We celebrated Second Chance Sunday, led by Amelia Boomershine and our guest preacher, Heidi Arnold, who also told the scripture. Our very special guest, Fairrin Moss (pictured above), shared her experiences as a restored citizen. We had a guest soloist, Maggie Weckesser, who sang “Ave Maria” and “The Prayer of St. Francis”. After worship, we had the opportunity to visit with Marlene Steele, one of the artists whose work is on display at Grace. If you missed worship and would like to see it, click here for the Grace Church Dayton channel of YouTube.

PRAYER FOR ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Pastor Steve, David Larson, Roberta Longfellow, and Myrna Miller are attending the West Ohio Annual Conference through Friday. Congregations have been asked to pray at select times for the work of the Bishop and the conference members. Grace has been signed up for this evening, Wednesday, May 29, from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m.

If you like, you can use Bishop Palmer’s prayer:

“Gracious God, we humbly acknowledge that you are the source of our life. We confess we are often tempted to try being your church without your love, without your power. Forgive us. Grant to us, grace-full God, to put all our hope and confidence in you. For you are Able. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”
