Star Words

Star words are a contemporary tradition, which give us intentionality in our prayer life and life in the community of faith. Most years, in worship, we pass a basket filled with star words, and each person chooses (without looking) their own star. This year, since many of us are not gathering, the staff will choose a star word for you and send it to you. These words are an invitation to us to focus on one idea or concept or character trait…pray over it, look it up in a dictionary, and then to watch and see how God will speak and lead us in the next year. You may choose to hang your star somewhere that you will notice occasionally. We will continue to discuss these words as we worship and, if you have a story you would like to share about a past star word, we would love to hear it! To receive a star word, contact the church office via phone (702.384.4554) or email Leslie at leslie@gracepclv.org, and they will send it to you.
                                                                                                                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                                                            

 Church Officer Nomination

We are in need of Grace PC members to fill our vacant Elder and Deacon slots.  Below is a description of each office:
 

An active Elder is a member of the Session. Elders serve on one of five church commissions: Proclamation and Worship, Congregational Life, Mission, Spiritual Growth and Support (finances, buildings and grounds, stewardship and personnel).  Jobs on the Session are numerous and varied. Some duties may be to greet, serve communion or assist in the worship service. The Session is the ruling body of the church. When Elders vote in Session, they vote their conscience with the help of God. An Elder must be a member of Grace Presbyterian Church.  The Session is best made up of men and women of various ages who are representative of all areas of interest within the church and all cultural backgrounds. A normal term of active service is three years with the option of a second three-year term.

A Deacon is a member of the Deaconate. Deacons visit shut-ins and members under special care.  They send cards, prepare gift baskets, prepare meals and care for persons after hospitalization and during times of grief.  Deacons greet on Sundays and may arrange for flower deliveries to ill members after services.  In conjunction with Lutheran Social Services, they administer a housing assistance program. In a program sponsored by Family Promise, they join with other local   churches to provide housing and meals at Grace for homeless families as that organization helps the families to secure jobs and affordable housing and achieve independence. Deacons “do” the famous Brown Bag ministry and many other projects which help individuals in our church family, the congregation as a whole and our community.

Coffee and Conversation
A Time of Fellowship
 
One of the things I miss most about gathering for worship, is community, and checking in with all of you…finding out how life is going, knowing how to pray for you, and just seeing your smiling faces. It is true that I have found joy in several things in the midst of this quarantine time. Family time together as we prepare our meals, less running around for activities and school drop-off and pick up, and of course being able to worship as a family. However, I do not like the fact that I can’t see and catch up with all of you on a regular basis.

 

So, beginning this coming Tuesday, May 5th, I would like to invite you to an informal time of Coffee and Conversation. I will begin each Tuesday with a short devotional, and then we will open it up to talk about life, faith and family. Always including a good dose of hope and Prayer.

 

I hope you will join me!  Email dana@gracepclv.org to join and for more information.
