Grace Weekly

 

  1. ENCORE DAY TRIP-THE ARCHITECTURE OF BEES
  2. Wednesday, June 29, 2022, 9:00 a.m.

    The Architecture of Bees is an immersive educational visual arts exhibition that brings together designers, architects, naturalists, and beekeepers to illustrate the importance and influence of bees on human design and construction.

    Highlights include: A human-scale demonstration of “bee space”, enabling visitors to walk into and experience the spatial dimensions of a beehive. A celebration of the hexagon – the fundamental shape which makes up honeycomb. Methods of cooling and heating human homes and office buildings that find similarities within bee colonies. Wendy Hegar, beekeeper and architect, will speak to us about bees.

    We will eat a dutch-treat lunch at Treebeards at 11:00 a.m. where they serve some terrific southern and cajun food. 

    Following lunch, we will tour the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. Due to the tremendous growth in the city of Houston, in 1959, the Holy See permitted the Most Reverend Wendelin J. Nold, fifth bishop of the Galveston Diocese, to erect a cathedral of convenience in the city. Because of its central location, he chose Sacred Heart Church, built in 1911, to serve as co-cathedral and installed an episcopal chair.

    Daytrip details: cost-$10.00 , please be at the church by 8:45 a.m. for a 9:00 a.m. departure. We will return to Grace no later than 4:00 p.m. Reservations and payment are due by June 27. Click HERE to reserve your spot. 


  3. SUMMER STORYTIME SERIES
  4. Wednesday, June 29, 10-11:00 a.m., Massey-Tucker Hall   

    For our youngest disciples, preschoolers and their siblings are invited to join us this summer for a fun Summer Storytime Series at Grace. For the next four weeks we will have activities, crafts, games, storybooks, and a Bible story each week. Come see your friends and bring a friend!


  5. FEAST FOR THE FIREFIGHTERS @ STATION 69
  6. As part of the Friends of Westchase ministry, we are planning to love on our first responders with meals. Please join us - invite your Sunday School class, Bible Study, Disciple Group, friends or family to bless the firefighters at Station 69 (right across the beltway from Grace) with a feast!

    Plan a thoughtful meal - homemade or from a restaurant (many will offer a discount for first responders) to share with the 11 firefighters who are stationed there! 

    We hope to bless them, show our support and love at least once per month, so thank you in advance for your efforts. If you have questions or need another date please contact Kristy Elmore, kelmore@gpch.org.

    Sign up for meals HERE.
