In addition to online worship, you're invited to join us in Grace Connects, a virtual initiative focused on phone check-ins and a new online forum for prayer and sharing called Grace Connecting.
Read on for details.
Until we can gather regularly in person again, we will check in on one another by phone about twice a week. Kim will coordinate these phone partnerships, starting with a small group of participants identified by our pastoral care team, and expanding from there.
Please click here to email Wren if you’re willing to call and check in on others from Grace, or if you know someone who may appreciate a phone call. Kim will provide guidelines to those who are making these check-in calls.
When needs or concerns surface, callers will send me a confidential note describing the need, and Wren will coordinate a response. We are ready to respond to one another's needs by praying for one another, by delivering groceries or medicine to people who cannot leave home, by writing notes to one another, and by offering financial assistance through Grace's Phinney Fund.
If you are in a low-risk group and are willing to pick up and deliver groceries, medicine, or other items for friends at Grace, please email Wren.
Grace Connecting: An Online Forum
Kim has created an online forum called Grace Connecting, a space where we'll share reflections, encouragement, ideas, and prayer intentions.
Once you're on the blog, you can subscribe to future posts by clicking "Subscribe by Email," read the contributions already there offered by Jon Quitslund and Jill Todd, add a comment, and send ideas for future posts to Kim.
Our children are invited to join in Kids Connect, where they may send artwork, homemade cards, or letters to a member of Grace who might be isolated. Contact Kim to learn more.
