Gathered in Worship, Living in Christ
Lent begins this year with the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper from 5-7 p.m., February 21, at the Parish Hall. This celebrates the end of Epiphany and is the last celebration of the Church until Easter Sunday. The pancakes are great! The company is excellent and family friendly. Invite friends. There is no charge but a donation basket will be set out to cover expenses.
Ash Wednesday services with Holy Communion and the Imposition of Ashes will be February 22 at noon and 7 p.m. in the church. Both services will be short with time for private contemplation following the liturgy.
A Hero's Journey
This year’s theme is 'Lent. . .a Hero’s Journey.'
Each Sunday we will examine a milestone on the journey through the scriptures of the day.
First Sunday, February 26: Truth
Second Sunday, March 5: Purpose
Third Sunday, March 12: Integrity
Fourth Sunday, March 19: Choice
Last Sunday, March 26: Life
Following the archetypal path of the Hero’s Journey, we will not only follow Jesus on his journey of transformation and atonement, but we will even more importantly, take time to reflect on our own heroic journeys of challenge, revelation, atonement and transformation.

Worshipping this Lent
We meet at the Threshold at 10:30 every Sunday morning! Coffee hour follows our worship where we are both sustained and encouraged!
1) We recommend you read, Inside Story, the power of the transformational arc by Dara Marks. It is a book about how to write a screenplay, but more important, it guides the reader in reflecting on the depth and meaning of their own Hero’s Journey.
2) Let’s watch movies! We are encouraging you to invite friends to watch great Hero’s Journey movies. You can download discussion questions from the website, or just enjoy a great story together!
Movie suggestions are, The Hobbit, Quigley Down Under, Legends of the Guardians, The Milagro Beanfield War, Star Wars, Iron Giant, The Lion King, Kung Fu Panda, Australia, Pirates of the Caribbean, or one of your favorites. Email us with your suggestions and we will post them.
3) Keep a journal or write some of your own journey stories. We will post any stories we receive on the blog on this website.

“Grace is a small, beautiful church that looks very traditional, but is full of very open and welcoming believers.”
Ancient Words — Modern Times
The Episcopal Church believes that the way we pray forms us, transforms us. We pray the ancient words of Scripture and worship, handed down over the centuries, finding that they still are alive and speaking to us today. They compel us into service, working for peace, and worship.
La Iglesia Episcopal cree que la forma en que oramos nos forma, nos transforma. Oramos las antiguas palabras de las Escrituras y la adoración, transmitidas a lo largo de los siglos, descubriendo que todavía están vivas y nos hablan hoy. Nos obligan a servir, trabajar por la paz y la adoración.
