grace: prayer & communion

grace is small, contemplative service that is focused on the celebration of the Eucharist. Each week, an ordained member of the staff or faculty leads the congregation in a liturgy of prayer and confession that concludes with participation in the Lord’s Supper. Our communion leaders also offer a brief reflection on our weekly text from the Gospel of John. While Alexander Hall is being renovated this year, the grace service will be temporarily held in Demaray Chapel (on the bottom floor of First Free Methodist Church).  All are invited.

Update for the 2013-2014 academic year:

The time of the grace service has changed! Please join us during your lunch break for a 30-minute service of prayer and communion. These services will take place each Friday afternoon beginning at 12:30pm.
