Grace is now Live Streaming two services a week, accessible through the Grace Church Asheville YouTube Channel, found HERE. Access the service bulletins through links at the top of our website at graceavl.com.
Sunday 10:30 a.m. – Holy Eucharist Rite II
Wednesday 12:15 p.m. – Holy Eucharist Rite II with Prayers for Healing
8:00 a.m. – The early service is a traditional Rite 1 Eucharist without music. Its quieter, more contemplative atmosphere appeals to, on average, 15-20 Sunday worshipers a week.
10:30 a.m. – This Choral and Family Holy Eucharist liturgy is based on Rite II and music comes from both the renewal movement and the hymnal. There is a young people’s moment and large family participation. People of many different ages enjoy this style of worship. This service has our Adult Choir singing. The service music reflects the theme of the lectionary readings for each Sunday. Prayers for healing are offered at this service during the serving of communion.
A nursery is provided from 8:50 to 12:10 p.m. on Sundays so young children can be cared for throughout breakfast and Children’s Formation time, as well as during the 10:30 service and coffee time that follows. However, parents may choose to have their little children in worship with them. We encourage school-age children to worship with their families.
3rd Sundays, 8:00 p.m., Taizé Service – On the third Sunday evening of each month we offer a Taizé service attended by an ecumenical congregation which enjoys this reflective form of worship incorporating silence, candles, chants, meditative readings and prayers. Prayers for healing are also offered at this service.
WEDNESDAY 12:15 p.m. Holy Eucharist and Healing Service
This is our midweek communion and healing service. It is usually attended by 8-12 people and provides an opportunity for the priest and prayer minister(s) to pray for each person who desires prayer.
9:25 – 10:20 a.m. Sunday School, (Sept.-May) For ages 3 through adult, with Nursery available for the youngest members. Most Sundays offer three adult studies (Sept. – May).
