A busy summer Sunday at Grace on June 11

Youth Sunday. This Sunday, June 11, is Youth Sunday, when we celebrate the leadership and gifts of our youth in our worship services. Grace teens are also hosting the coffee hour between services, so stop by for a cup of private roast coffee (roasted by our own Tom Stefanic) and a treat.

"Wheel or Walk" to worship. The Health Cabinet invites you to "Wheel or Walk" to worship this Sunday. Also, sign up for the Health Cabinet's Summer Walking program in the atrium on Sunday and start tracking your steps for the week of June 11–16.

Blessing of the Bikes. Join other Grace members at 9:30 am on the sidewalk outside the Bonnie Brae door for the Blessing of the Bikes (and wagons, trikes, scooters, strollers, etc.). We'll take a ride around the block together to celebrate the start of summer. See you there! (More Wheel or Walk to Worship days on July 9 and August 14.)

Summer Adult Ed: “Living Faithfully as Pastor, Partner, and Parent” with Pastor Dave Lyle, 9:45am, Seminar Room
Pastor Lyle writes: "Like many of you, I have multiple full-time vocations. I am called to serve as a minister of Word and sacrament. I am called to be a spouse to my wife, Erika. And I am called to be a parent to three young children. Most days, it feels like all three are full-time jobs, filled with joyous demands. How does God work in my life to help me live faithfully in all of these callings? How do they intersect? And, how can we learn together how God is supporting and sustaining each of us when life seems to pull us in so many directions at once?"  Read about upcoming sessions with Pastors Dave Wegner, Lauren Wegner, and Michael Costello.
