Compline 7:30pm today Monday October 4 could be affected by Facebook outage worldwide

Posted on

Grace Compline at 7:30 tonight will depend on the availability of Facebook at that hour. Facebook is down this afternoon worldwide.

Our Video Ministry Team leader Amy Kranick noticed the interruption and coordinated a response. Our Compline officiant tonight Don Hutchinson confirmed he is ready to lead worship at 7:30pm. We’re taking it as it comes.

Thank you to Amy, Don, Video Ministry Team members and all who worship God at Grace Compline online

Greetings from Grace News

Mission Statement

We are a welcoming and diverse community of faith that seeks to follow the way of Jesus Christ by serving and worshipping God.

Our beliefs:

∙     Worshipping in the love of Christ’s teachings and the Episcopal tradition reveals God more clearly so that we understand His call to us and live a life of faith.

∙     Every spiritual journey is unique and nurtured by curiosity about God and the nature of faith.

∙     We show our love of Jesus through outreach to the world around us.

∙     Stewardship, the nurturing of our earth and the sharing of our resources and gifts, is an essential part of who we are.

∙     An awareness of critical issues inspires us to align ourselves with the teachings of Jesus.

∙     Opportunities for fellowship strengthen the bonds of a community.

∙     Christian education at all ages deepens our relationship with God.

Worshiping and Serving Since 1873
