This Month at Grace:
Searchers Adult Sunday School class: Our topic of discussion for the month of October will be The Lord’s Prayer. While we repeat The Lord’s Prayer frequently, do we know about its background? Jesus stressed brevity in prayer. Some of the parts of The Lord’s Prayer were familiar to his audience, but much of it was radical and even seemed heretical. We meet in Room 116, a half hour following the 10 am worship service. All are welcome.
Harvest Festival! 10 am-1 pm, Saturday, October 14. Join your Grace family for some fall fellowship on the front lawn! Buy a pumpkin (or two!), sample some cider; food and fun for all!
Kate’s Krew – Join our team from Grace Church and participate in the 2017 Komen Maryland Race for the Cure®, a 5K/1mile run/walk on October 15, as we show our support for Kate Mullan and others in our congregation whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. Contact Burt English firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

The review reads, “In this epic, ravishingly beautiful film, we trace Luther’s extraordinary and exhilarating quest for the people’s liberation… that sparked a bloody revolution that shook the entire continent to its core.” The movie is 2 hours long. A light supper will be provided. If you are in need of child care, please contact the Church Office.
