Grace Notes – 9/5/18

Bluegrass Sunday is an excellent time to invite friends to church! Carp Camp loves to come and share in worship and everyone is invited to a potluck in Fellowship Hall after worship. Wear your tie-dye and get ready for a fun service. This year our theme is: JOY

Reminder: Bluegrass Sunday is our most attended Sunday of the year. If you are able, please park farther away than you might usually in order to make room for our guests. Be sure to welcome folks and if you see folks without a bulletin, help them find one. This is a great day to share the gospel and love our neighbors well! Thank you for being hospitable!


Tie Dye Shirts

We are so proud of the youth who sold 100/104 of their shirts on Sunday to raise money for immigrants on the border through the El Valle District of the UMC.

We have three T-shirts left after the weekend and would give preference to local, non-mailing shirts if anyone is interested! We have one adult small, one youth large, and one youth medium. Comment here to claim. $10 each!


Music Intern
We have one position open for a music ministry intern! Are you a college student and love choir? Would you like the opportunity to practice leadership skills in music? We’d love to have you on our team! Apply today.

College Student Opportunities
College Sunday School is at 9:30am on Sunday mornings and is led by Bruce Blake. This is a great place to grow in your faith while in college and provides connections with community members, coaches, and neighbors as well. They meet upstairs in the Grace Education Wing.
G(race) Talks is at 8:00pm on Sundays beginning September 9th and is led by Pastor Lora and Justin Williams in the SC Library. This is a place where we talk about how race, racism, and the culture in which we live impact our faith and how God calls us to racial justice and relationship with those who are different from us.
Music Ministry Intern – We have one position open for a music ministry intern! Are you a college student and love choir? Would you like the opportunity to practice leadership skills in music? We’d love to have you on our team. Check out our Facebook page to apply.


Save the Date – Confirmation Sunday 9/16

Confirmation Sunday will be September 16th during worship. This picture is the confirmands and their Grace sponsors at their ice cream social on Sunday night. The sponsors shared why they joined the church and how they live out those commitments of prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.


Save the Date – District Town Hall Meeting
Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. is leading town hall meetings in all 17 districts leading up to the special session of General Conference in February 2019 in St. Louis. Each meeting will feature details of three proposals and will provide an opportunity for discussion. You’re invited to come listen, learn and, most importantly, share. Congregations and pastors are invited.  These gatherings will be held at two locations on October 6th:

  • Chapel Hill UMC, 1550 N Chapel Hill St, Wichita KS from 10 am to 12 pm
  • West Heights UMC, 745 N Westlink, Wichita KS from  3 pm to 5 pm

They need to prepare for the space, so please let Pastor Lora know if you plan to attend so we can help the district know how many to set up round tables for.
