“For we are God’s workmanship,
crafted in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Ephesians 2:10

Is there anything more exciting than the knowledge that the God of the universe wants to work through you? Jesus tells us in John 15:16, “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will last.” We have been commissioned to do a good work!

Being a disciple of Christ means living and sharing God’s love and grace in all we do. As a church, Grace is expanding opportunities available for personal encouragement and nourishment needed for spiritual growth – at any age, at any state in their relationship with Christ.

We United Methodists believe that each of us is called to participate in the ministry of Jesus Christ. We believe that each of us-in the pew and in the pulpit-is indeed a minister of God’s outreaching love. Grace Church relies on each person to help create a dynamic ministry so the love and grace of Jesus might be better known in our families, church, community and world.

There are many ways to get involved at Grace UMC!

PILGRIMAGE HEALING PROCESS
Pilgrimage Healing is a “hands on” healing process developed by an Episcopal priest. Two trained healing partners open themselves to God’s healing power and go through a series of prayers and movements allowing God’s love to flow into you, while you are relaxing on a massage table. Anyone experiencing physical, emotional or spiritual pain or those wanting to more fully experience God’s love and peace are invited to come. Simply make an appointment. If it makes you feel more comfortable, you may bring family members or friends to pray during your session.

To schedule Healing Sessions, or to train to become a Healing Partner, contact Ruth Pavich, jrpavich@att.net or call the church office at 574-288-4789.

The Pilgrimage Process is a healing ministry of love. There is no charge for healing sessions. Donations are gratefully accepted. Your donation supports the work of Grace Church and the Healing Partners.
