We are hosting the Estampe Piano Trio
June 19th at 7:00 pm in our sanctuary

Professional musicians playing violin, cello and piano will present a program called “Desiring His Presence”, which includes the works from Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schoenfield, and Halvorson.  The program will explore the link between spiritual inspiration and the compositions.  Both children and adults are welcome.   Our church is an ideal venue for chamber music, both for its acoustics and size of the space, and with the Steinway grand piano, we can host these kinds of performances.  Dr. Eunjeong Choi (violin), Ms. Yeonwoo Seo (cello) and Dr. Mickey Chien (piano) will be joined by Dr. Yichen Li (countertenor).  Dr. Li and Ms. Seo are faculty at UIS, and this is another way we can be welcoming and engaged with our wider community in Springfield. 




Summer Fellowship Hour

As in years past, each committee and/or group at church takes a Sunday to host a fellowship time of great food following our 9:15 am Sunday worship.  To help with the Summer Fellowship time, we are also including a weekly sign up to those who are not on committees, but would like to bring something. This is similar to our Midweek Wednesday night meals. Check out the white board for the weeks to sign up today.   


is collecting socks and undies for McClernand Elementary school.  Underwear and socks should fit children ages 4-8 years old. There is a basket at the back of the church in the narthex with a sign on it.

The Annual WELCA Potluck
June 17th, 6:00pm
  - Home of Kendal Hoselton.

Please bring a covered dish to pass. Tableware and drinks will be provided. A brief business meeting will be held after the meal, followed by a short program. Jiffy Johnson will speak on "Organizing and Getting Rid of Clutter". This is a wonderful opportunity for all to share fun, fellowship, and great food!  All women belonging to Historic Grace Lutheran Church of all ages are invited and encouraged to attend.


For those who have suffered a loss or who are going through a difficult time, Easter can be a time of painful loneliness and emptiness. If you are smiling on the outside but full of pain on the inside, and the joy of Easter seems far away, help is available. Our Stephen Ministers are ready to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care. They will listen, care, encourage, and pray with and for you. Stephen Ministers have been specially trained to meet your emotional and spiritual needs. If you or someone you know is hurting, find out more about Stephen Ministry by talking with one of our Stephen Leaders: Cindy Anderson, Jim Hobbs or Sara Oehlert. Our Stephen Ministers are there to care!


School Kits:  we will be collecting notebooks, rulers, sharpeners, scissors, pencils, pens, crayons, and erasers. A complete list of exact sizes we need will be posted on the WELCA board in Fellowship Hall. There will also be in list in the next Grace Notes. We hope to fill 100 school bags with your help. Items will be accepted beginning now thru the end of September.


We're hopeful you will consider the books at this new price for gifts for neighbors, beauticians, teachers, party hostesses--birthday gifts, thank you gifts, etc.
