Monthly Healing Service
Beginning July 3, Grace is offering a
monthly service of healing for those who desire a quiet, reflective space for healing, restoration, and community. Deacon Allison Wilcox will lead the service, which will take place on the first Tuesday evening of each month at 7:00 pm, in the Sanctuary.
This worship service is open to those who are seeking comfort or even simply peaceful respite from a chaotic world.
