Thank You
With KPG Summer Camp in full swing, the KPG Staff came in this morning to the most wonderful greeting.

Big kudos to the “Cheer Fairies” who surprised the KPG Staff by spreading their cheer and sending love to our Staff.

Like a warm hug, these greetings are always a welcome sight. But during these times of COVID continuing well past what we ever expected, it’s especially wonderful to receive the affirmation that our teachers efforts are truly appreciated. I know the smiles in the rooms will be contagious today.

YOU ROCK … Whoever you are!!!


A special thanks goes out to these wonderful volunteers who have opened their homes and donated their time, talent and energy to host VBS throughout the city this summer.  Thank you for taking the time to invest in the lives of families in your circle of influence and giving them the opportunity to learn about the goodness of our God.

Thank you to all who took our worship style survey. Your participation helps the work that our summer intern, Grace Woods, is doing and gives insight to how we do worship at Grace UMC.

PROGRESS!!! Center Of Grace

Work Work Work!
We have been such busy bees this month.  With the help of wonderful Grace volunteers, we are renovating the old sanctuary. The funds for this project came from the Grace Extravaganza Fund-the-Need. This beautiful space is being transformed into a multi-purpose room, much like Grace Gathering.   We reported last week on how the pews are gone along with the old green carpet and communion rails.  Everything is now prepared for PAINT!!

Once again our wonderful Grace volunteers have stepped up and have been busy painting this past weekend.  My how the place shines!
