Announcements: The Sixth Sunday of Easter 
May 9, 2021

For Your Information

Today we baptize Boston Atkisson.  Welcome to Boston, his brothers Angel and Timothy, III, and their parents, Vanessa and Timothy, Jr.

Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord!

· Outdoor hymn sings Sundays May 16 and June 13 after 10am worship.
10 minutes. Mask + 10 fee social distance singers and performers are
invited to coordinate with Music Minister, Tony Otlowski.
See Tony after worship or (856) 404-5602 or anthony.otlowski@gmail.com.

We are continuing the wonderful work of cleaning and organizing that has been done throughout the church and church grounds in the Parish Office on Saturday, 5/15 at 2 pm.  Julia McGraw, Parish Secretary, is looking for a few volunteers to help move emptied office furniture from the Office.  This commitment will only take about an hour.  If you are available to help, please text or call Julia.  Thank you!

The Altar Guild has openings for the month of May.  Please consider honoring a loved one, or celebrating a happy occasion with a Flower Memorial on the Altar at Grace!

The following are available for the month of May:

* Sunday Flowers: 23rd
* Light Shines for the month.

Please contact Kelly Sneddon, Altar Guild Directress, woodstock218@yahoo.com to sign up.  Thank you!

The Vestry will meet this coming Tuesday, 5/11 at 7 pm.

There will be an upcoming Video Ministry Training for those interested in being a part of the Video Ministry Team.  Video Ministry has become an important way for Grace to be available to our parish family, friends, and neighbors who join us virtually.  It has enabled us to bring God’s Word out into the world in new ways that we hope to continue.  Father Bob will be announcing date and time for training.  Please stay tuned.

The Rector and our Public Health Team are reviewing incremental changes to public health requirements at Grace Church.  The basics of mask wearing, 6 feet of social distancing, and no congregational singing remain in place.
This is how we love one another.

Thank you to all who have supported the ECW Candle Fundraiser!  The fundraiser is still going, and we have plenty more beautiful, long-lasting scented candles decorated with encouraging bible messages.  Each candle is $14.  If you have not yet picked up your candle, or if you want to purchase one, please contact Anna Hopkins, ECW President, annahopkins.gracechurch@gmail.com

Ongoing Ministries

St. Clare’s Thrift Shoppe is open Fridays and Saturdays, 10 am – 2 pm.  Sorting help needed Tuesdays 10 am.

Parishioners are invited to explore helping Altar Guild, Lector, Lay Eucharist Minister, Usher and Video Ministry. Contact the Rector or a current ministry member.

The Rector is making home visits and pastoral calls on request. 
Public health protections will be agreed in advance and observed.
Contact the parish office at (856) 665-4117 or gracemerchantville@gmail.com

We continue to adapt for the health and safety of all.  If there are any changes to the worship schedule, it will be communicated as quickly and completely as possible.  This is how we show God’s love for one another.

Online worship continues Sundays 10 AM and Weeknights 7:30 PM via Facebook live video.
