A Children's Hymn


God, send us light,
Light to shine on us forever.
God, send us light,
Light to shine and glow with you.

God, send us fun,
Fun to play with you forever
God, send us fun,
Fun to play and sing with you.

God, send us joy,
Joy to smile with you forever.
God send us joy,
Joy to smile and laugh with you.

God, send us love,
Love to be your friends forever.
God, send us love,
Love to be at home with you.

J.M.A. Wright+
Tune: Abbey's Song

Back-to-school events



Children's choirs
Grace has four choirs for children beginning at age 3 up through high school students. This is a great time to explore music opportunities for your child at Grace.

Weekly rehearsals are on Mondays for St. Nicholas Choir, Junior Choir, and the St. Nicholas Choral Scholars.

Our youngest singers, the St. Cecilia Choir, rehearse on Wednesdays starting September 3.

For more information, contact Jodi Bennett at jbennett@gracesc.org.


 

The Blessing of the Bookbags
Sunday, August 24 at 9:00 a.m.
Students and teachers of all ages are invited to mark the beginning of another school year at Grace's annual Blessing of the Bookbags during the 9:00 a.m. Family Eucharist service.

Commissioning of Teachers
for Little School & Sunday School
will also take place at the 9:00 a.m. service. Classes for Little School (Grace's preschool) start August 20.

The Big Group Photo! On August 24, Grace will once again take a group photo of every child and youth who's at church that day (ages 0-18). This year, we'll take the photo inside the church at The Peace. Please come and be part of the fun!

"Growing in Grace"
Stop by Hanahan Hall during the coffee hours on August 24 to learn about all the ways you can be involved at Grace this fall: choirs, classes, volunteer opportunities, Foyer Group dinners, parish life events... we'll have lots of information on ways to keep "Growing in Grace."



"Episcopal Night" at the baseball game



The St. Nicholas Choir sang the National Anthem to start off the Charleston RiverDogs game on August 17. Baseball fans from all over The Episcopal Church in South Carolina gathered for an "Episcopal Night" at Joe Riley Stadium and enjoyed a great game as the RiverDogs beat the Rome Braves 5-4. See a photo album from the event here.

Sunday morning adult education
'Stories of Grace (in TV, Film, and Literature)'
Throughout July and August, the Reverend John Zahl is bringing a fresh round of “Stories of Grace (in TV, Film, and Literature)” to the Meadowcroft Room during the adult education hour at 10:10. As in previous classes like the popular “Grace in Downton Abbey” series, he'll be drawing from classic film, pop-culture, and contemporary television, including the BBC series Call the Midwife. Join the class any Sunday – newcomers are always welcome.


Labor Day Weekend

Grace's Weekend at Kanuga
Each year Grace Church holds a retreat at Kanuga, a conference center affiliated with The Episcopal Church near Hendersonville, NC. This year's event is August 29-31, with an option to stay over until Monday, September 1. 

Lodging and meals are included, along with mini-sessions on a variety of topics. There's also plenty of free time for relaxing, reading, hiking, seeing area attractions and visiting with other Grace parishioners.
