First Wednesday Fellowship Dinners

On the first Wednesday of each month (with a few exceptions when a holiday conflicts) we offer a catered Fellowship Dinner in the Fellowship Hall.  Various ministry groups help organize these dinners throughout the year.  The meal is served from 5:45 - 6:45 pm.  Cost is $7 per person, with a family max of $25.  There is also a take-out option.  You can sign up to attend by contacting the church office or by marking the blue Connection Form in Sunday's bulletin by the Monday before the Wednesday dinner.

Intercessory Prayer Group

This group meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-10:30 am, just before the Wednesday Morning Bible Study, to pray for those who are ill, injured, grieving, celebrating or otherwise in need of special prayers.  They welcome new members - come join them in the Prayer Room on the main level.

 

Prayer and Squares Quilt Ministry

This group meets monthly at 1:00 pm on third Monday in the Resource Room to make prayer quilts for members and friends of the Grace congregation who are facing illnesses.  Quilts are decorated with strings that are tied in knots as people pray over the quilt as it is displayed in the narthex on Sunday mornings.

 

Knitting Group

This group meets twice a month, and needleworkers are welcome to join them for one or both sessions - second and fourth Thursdays at 1:00-3:00 pm in the Prayer Room.  The group project is baby blankets for Prince William Hospital, but members are also welcome to work on their own projects.  Knitting instruction is available from group leaders during the meetings.  


Chicken Soup Ministry

This ministry provides meals to the Grace family in response to births, illnesses, hospitalization or upon the death of a loved one.  Please contact the church office if you have need of meals, or if you would like to volunteer to provide meals to folks in your neighborhood.
