Grace Episcopal Church will return to 9am ZOOM Services  through Sunday November 21.   Due to significant rising COVID cases in our area We will not gather in person through November 21.

Based on the most recent information on COVID cases in Maine, the vestry has decided that we will continue to worship on ZOOM for Sunday services through November 21.  They will re-evaluate based on the data at their meeting on November 16th. Please join your community on Sunday mornings at 9am.

Please join us on ZOOM a little before 9am to have conversation and worship together:

If you have not joined us on ZOOM before, this is a great time to try it – and, if you have a computer or phone and don’t know how to sign on, please let us know so we can help!  We know that ZOOM worship is not everyone’s “cup of tea” but hope you will consider joining to be part of your church fellowship!

Watch for a ZOOM Sunday forum in the coming weeks!

Please watch your email, newsletters and our website (https://gracebath.org) for updated information moving forward!

*********************************************************

Gracious God, our life and times are in your hands. Be with us however we gather so that we may know and show your great love in the world.  Be with those who suffer, especially in this time of COVID.  Help us to heal the divides that sometimes keep us from acting for the common good and open our eyes and hearts to see a way forward so that all may live in health. All this we ask in the name of Jesus. AMEN

Sacred Ground Conversations about Race

We all want to see improvements in the racial disparities in our society, but it can be difficult to have meaningful conversations about these issues. The Sacred Ground program uses discussion groups led by trained facilitators in order to make this conversation safer and more impactful. Groups of 6-9 participants and two facilitators meet roughly every three weeks over the course of ten sessions. During this time they watch and discuss films exploring the history and impact of race and racism in American society. Participants describe the program as “transformational”, “eye-opening”, and “heart-expanding.” St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has been using Sacred Ground with success for over a year, and is now updating it to be applicable to folks from any faith or no faith at all. We hope you will join us.
