Lent and Holy Week provide many opportunities to observe silence within our Liturgy, including at the start and at the end. Please try to observe silence when you enter and when you leave the Church. A period of silence always follows the Lord’s Prayer and the Breaking of the Bread.
Kneeler Dedication at the 9:00 a.m. Service
As we near completion of the Nave Needlepoint Kneeler Project started in 2005 during Grace Church’s Sesquicentennial celebration, another needlepoint kneeler will be dedicated Sunday morning.
Donated by the late Rebecca (“Becky”) Barker in thanksgiving for her parents, Lydia and Joshua Sayad, and her brothers, Ephraim and Paul Sayad, the kneeler’s design is Bread of Life. It was stitched by her daughter Sarah Barker Richey and Brad Bergmann.
Memorial Books that record donors and their dedications, stitchers, and illustrations are on display in the Narthex. All of the needlepoint patterns for pews in the Nave were designed by Patricia Lamb Bamford. Finishing, installation and continuing maintenance are made possible by memorial gifts.
Adult Forum (Auditorium)
As part of the Confirmation process, the J2A youth have been meeting each Monday night to explore their faith. Topics have included Baptism and Confirmation: Beginnings, the Bible: Stories from Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Knowing Our History, Faith: What Do We Believe?, and Worship: Responding to God’s Blessings. At the beginning of the series, the class was asked to make a video that explains the process of confirmation to a wider audience. Today, the youth will be presenting their video project, explaining the process of Confirmation in their own words. Parents, especially those of elementary school students, Rite 13 youth and newcomers are encouraged to attend this special forum that showcases our youth and the J2A program!
