The Season of Lent

This spring, prepare your hearts with your friends and family at Grace. The time after Epiphany is called Lent, which means "spring time." Lent is a time of preparation for Easter--for reflection on our mortality, repentance of our sins, and remembrance of Christ's sufferings on the cross. During Lent, we welcome you to our Lenten services where we will reflect upon the passion of Jesus and what that means for His disciples. 

Shrove Tuesday

Celebrate Shrove Tuesday with your Grace family and friends before Lent begins. Join us February 25th from 4:30 to 7 PM in the downstairs dining room for pancakes, sausage, fruit and orange juice.
