January Newsletter: Ministry in our Neighborhoods

What is happening out there in YOUR neighborhoods?

Deadline: December 21st 

We welcome congregants of Grace to write stories or articles related to the Ministry of the Month: Thankfulness. Here are some prompts to get you started: 

Do you have a story to share that you are thankful for, or have you volunteered and received more than you gave? Why do you think this is important to share? We'd like to hear your story. 

Some other things to think about might include your thoughts during the pandemic, special times that bring joy. These past few months have affected us all in ways we couldn't imagine and we are facing an uncertain future as we continue to social distance. Write about the challenges you face and how we can go through this time together.

Mission Statement: We are called to Welcome Everyone to Walk the Way of GRACE, and walk in that way in our individual lives, in our shared life in our various communities, in our common life with our neighbors, and even to the world at large as God sends us. The Way of Grace is to: GROW with Jesus, REJOICE in God, ANSWER with hope, CARE for the neighbor, and EMBRACE community.

Vision Statement: God has a plan FOR OUR LIVES, and so we teach how to walk in the path of Jesus Christ; FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, and so we work to build healthy and strong communities; FOR OUR CITY, and so we share life with our neighbors in Walltown, Trinity Park, Duke, and the Triangle; and FOR OUR WORLD, and so we go with Good News.

Core Values: Because God loves us first, we value worship rooted in Scripture and Sacraments, service to all people, and being a welcoming community that loves and forgives one another.
