What happens at an after-worship church coffee-hour? Wouldn't it just be boring? Or might it surprise you?
Maybe it would, if you're coming to Grace Church's post 10:00 AM service's coffee-hour.
Who knows what could happen?
You're just here to perk up for the early afternoon, with a nice hot cup of coffee before leaving, maybe a finger-sandwich or a sweet-roll. Ready to meet some parishioners, or sit down with a group of friends you've already made.
Things seem fairly normal so far ... Maybe a little bit of frolic and ruckus from the kids running around inside or outside. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Suddenly the high-pitched tones of an old Louis Armstrong song come pealing over the microphone ... "... and I think to myself, what a wonderful world." You're being treated to an impromptu a capella concert by one of our own parishioner children, with not an ounce of self-consciousness in the world. How's that for a send-off on your Sunday afternoon?
Unexpectedly delightful ~ but not the only time something like that has happened. At Grace Church, even during coffee-hour, you may be surprised by joy at random moments.
For example, somebody has a birthday but only one person knew, so the cake, candles & singing are going on as soon as you enter the parish hall. Surprise!
Or a guest speaker from another parish or even another country, has given a sermon & joins the congregation for food, along with a presentation of what life is like in their region.
How about the time when someone's 50th Anniversary was commemorated by a Hawaiian-themed party?
Sound like fun? You're in the right place!
Because here at Grace, when we worship our Lord, we also celebrate life, and His Creation. (Even at a simple coffee-hour). Please come join us, and find out how we roll ... in our ordinary Christian lives as a close-knit church-family.
