    Rector’s Writ

    We know we’re getting older, when those we baptized as babies are graduating.

    Two of our Choir members and acolytes, Eric Splinter and Jenna Summy, will be

    starting college this fall, Eric at Clarkson University in New York and Jenna at

    Kent State. Sammi Stickle will study at Northcoast, and Georgia Golec will

    study at Ohio University. We’ve seen these people grow into young adults, and

    we’re grateful they’ve been part of our Church family. We encourage all of you to

    visit when you can and keep in touch. We invite all of you to join us for worship

    anytime and to know that you’ll remain in our hearts and in our prayers. Below

    are prayers for our graduates, and prayers as well for the people serve consistently:

    singing and enhancing our worship, and teaching our children about God, the

    Bible, and the Church. Please take a moment to say thank you and to offer a

    prayer for our graduates and our choir & teachers as they break for summer.

    God’s blessings & peace to all our Grace Church family. Carol+

    PRAYER FOR GRADUATES Congratulations & best wishes to our 2016 High School Graduates: Georgia Golec; Eric

    Splinter; Sammi Stickle; and Jenna Summy. Congratulations also to Beverly Brooks, who earned a Master’s in Education from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and to Kelly Farmer (Shirley & Mike Johnson’s granddaughter) who earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Lander University in South Carolina. With their families, we give thanks to God for their accomplishments, and we pray for our Lord’s continued blessings and guidance in their lives.

    O God, you are the source of wisdom, love, hope, and joy: send out your light to guide all graduates. Give them a clear knowledge of their calling and gifts; help them to see your hand at work in their lives and in the world around us; confirm in them the holiness of your truth. Strengthen and lead them to become faithful people of prayer and vision; through Jesus Christ our Lord who taught us that with you all things are possible. Amen.

    PRAYER FOR CHOIR & ORGANIST

    Martha Croll, Choir Director; Tim Lewicki, Organist; Choir Members: Jeff Croll, Phillip Crouse, Marsha Snyder, Eric Splinter, Marcia Splinter, Tim Splinter, Jenna Summy, Kathy Summy. Many thanks to these members who provide music and song as part of our worship and praise each week.

    O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven; bless and be near our organist and choir in their ministry, worship, and fellowship. We thank you for the talents you have given them and their willingness to share their gifts. Fill them with joyful hearts and glad voices for your honor and glory. May we all sense the majesty and mystery of the Holy One as we offer you our worship, service, and praise; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Amen. (Continued Inside…)

    Stickle and Carolyn Englert (adult ed). We give thanks for all the leaders & teachers, as well as the children & youth who took part in Christian Ed classes and events this past school year.

    Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the children and youth who are part of our Church family and for those who share their talents and love through teaching. Help us to remember how we are all responsible for the care and nurture of your children. Let us be channels for your loving kindness to be made known in their lives. Enlighten with wisdom those who teach and those who learn, that, abiding in your love and grace, we may worship and serve you and care for one another, from generation to generation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Congratulations! and many happy returns...

  • Sue and Bruce Ahrens spent time in Massachusetts with their grandchildren, while their daughter Sonja and son-in-law Donnie were on vacation in Cancun. Sue forgot how busy young ones are; but really enjoyed the time with them. Sue is originally from Massachusetts and while there she took the opportunity to visit with family and friends, and that was very enjoyable…

    Goldie Shriver, our nursery attendant, has retired. For 50+ years Goldie has taken care of our children and for that we say a “big thank you!” She will be sorely missed as our nursery director, but we’re happy to say she still attends the 8am service, so many of us still get to see her and get a “Goldie hug.”…

    It’s official--Sammy Rich has joined the choir . It was wonderful to see him “singing” with us, even though it’s only for the anthem. When that’s over he’s back in the pew with his parents, Phil & Courtney. He enjoys reading music. Sammy is autistic and non-verbal; when he got back to school on Monday his teacher asked him to fill in the blank. “I want to ____.” Sammy wrote, “I want to be in my church choir.” The teacher shared that with his mother, Courtney, and asked if there was any way he could sit with our choir. Sure you can, Sammy!!...

    We heard from Phillis Shorts. She and Bill are enjoying visits with family and all the activities that are available to them in their Florida community and church, including a Kentucky Derby Day Party and a Downton Abby Tea. Sounds like fun!!...

    We had a lot of chil
