Adult Formation

Bible Study

We meet online Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. for Bible Study. Sometimes we read and study together a particular book of the Old Testament or New Testament and sometimes we read and study the scripture for our worship together on Sunday.  All that is needed to be a part of this learning is an open mind and a prayerful heart. If you do not own a bible you can access an online bible here https://bible.oremus.org. No prior knowledge is needed; all are welcome. To join us online https://us02web.zoom.us/j/753016518 or call 1 646 558 8656 (Meeting ID: 753 016 518)

Centering Prayer

“Silence is God’s first language,” wrote the 16th-century mystic John of the Cross. On Thursday evenings we pause, we slow down our busy lives, we rest and allow ourselves to take time to listen to God and to our heart. Centering Prayer is a spiritual practice that at its core is the desire to return to God. Join us online for an hour of silent prayer, contemplative readings, and community. We begin our time at 5:00 PM.  All are welcome. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/203314800  (Meeting ID: 203 314 800)

Children’s Formation Classes

Children are very important. In this time of physical separation while we cannot gather together in person, we will be sending materials for family worship and play. Please let us know if you would like to receive them by emailing office@graceberkshires.org or calling 413-644-0022.

Prayer for our Children

Most generous and loving God, we thank you for the gift of children. With each child you refresh your promises to all of us. Through each child you remind us to take care of all you have created. We pray your blessing on each child today. Teach them to love courage and to trust you. Help them see you at work in your world. Help them speak words of love, peace, and friendship. Turn their faces in kindness toward their neighbors, and fill each one with confidence in your steadfast love. This we ask in the name of your child, Jesus Christ. Amen

Coffee Hour (Online)

Grace Church Coffee Hour is the Grace Church community “at home.” Every Sunday following online worship, we invite you to stay to visit with each other in breakout rooms on Zoom. People are joining us from all over the country. We have been apart for a while, so nothing can be better than catching up with the week’s events, sharing triumphs and worries, laughing—children and pets are welcome! There’s always room at this table, and we would love for you to join us!
