July 12 Update:

Greetings to All Grace Family Members:

It is indeed summertime! The current heat wave is reminding us all that we need to find ways to stay cool, even if it is to turn the sprinkler on and give ourselves and the gardens a bit of a shower. Unfortunately, none of us can go to a neighbour’s pool party this year.

Our worship services for July will continue to be video services, which when edited are posted for computer access. That also allows us to do some worship outdoors—when it is cool enough.

Starting in August, we hope to have live-streaming cameras installed in the Grace sanctuary and worship will be broadcast from there. It will also be recorded so you will be able to watch it later as well.

Although the worship services will be live streamed from the sanctuary, the building is still closed—so those who can be present will still be limited to those preparing and presenting the worship service.

 

We await more information from the provincial government as to what might be happening in September.

 

In the meantime, we can still worship “together” online, chat and do church work through Zoom calls, and connect with each other by phone. Thanks to all who are not only persevering through these changed circumstances, but even responding creatively.

Pictures – one more week

Over the last couple of weeks we have invited you to send pictures of your garden or an outdoor scene—or a pet or other creature. Any pictures you have should be in to us by next Wednesday, July 15, so we can use them in our worship services. Thanks to those who have already responded.

Please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and they will be forwarded to our techy worship folks.

Worship this Sunday

This Sunday, we will be outside again with our worship service in the Muskoka area. A good time of year to enjoy woods and water.

Our worship service can be accessed through the Grace website, Facebook and YouTube. Click on the links below.

Live Streaming Project

Information about our live-stream camera project has been mailed out in a letter from the Stewardship and Finance Team. If by any chance you missed it, please let us know so we can bring you up to date. With many thanks to those who are supporting this project, we hope to have cameras installed shortly and start live-streaming later in the summer.

Grace Matters

Grace Matters is posted to the Grace website. A good read for the summer! Find out about what has been happening in the Grace family. Please click on this link: Grace Matters.

Book Club

The Book Club, reviewing the book “White Fragility” (with several United Churches participating) will meet again on Wednesday, July 15. It is not too late to still join in. Please check the attached poster and plan to participate.

Vacation Bible Camp

Our Vacation Bible Camp with the theme of “Hidden Treasure” has its own hidden treasure—and that is the new date!!!

Due to other summer activities outdoors, it was decided that our online Vacation Bible Camp will become a one-morning event on Monday, August 10, from 10 am to 11 am. It will include storytelling, music, dancing—and of course crafts.

Registration forms will be sent out and craft supplies delivered to those who register.

For more information, please call or email the church office (705.734.0760 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). And watch the mail for an invitation—if you are under the age of 12!

Prayer List

As always, we have Prayer concerns to share with you. Please see the email list and keep those individuals and families in your prayers.
