Hip Hop Mass
Hip Hop Mass
On Saturday - April 5th at 5:00 p.m., Grace Church welcomes the community to witness the unification of Hip Hop music & worship. The Hip Hop Mass is a worship service that will present the Gospel in a way that transcends age, gender, race, religious affiliation, & socio-economic status. The service will follow a traditional worship order, but incorporate hip hop to reach individuals who may otherwise not receive God's message. The goal is to reach out to young people & others using their language, culture & sensibilities to communicate the word of God. The Hip Hop Mass will take place the 1st Saturday of every month.  For more information contact or 513-681-0743.  Tell a friend or neighbor...this is an event you do not want to miss!

"Got Questions" Group Meeting
Sunday - April 13 - 12:00 p.m.
Some time ago members of Grace Church began to dialogue about the various religions worshiped in our world.  The dialogue was initially centered around the book, "The Faith Club", which explored Christians, Jews, and Muslims.  Based on the conversations that occurred Grace members will continue to discuss the many questions that exist surrounding religion and faith.  The group will be meeting next Sunday at Bennyce Hamilton's house - 6708 Devonwood Lane.  For more information contact Ernestein Flemister at
African Crafts & Jewelry Sale

Founded in 1984 as an intermediary ministry between African and American churches of the Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Anglican denominations, African Team Ministries, Inc. provides funds for orphan and refugee relief, missions and evangelism in East Africa.  The organization currently has children registered for sponsorship in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. Support is sent directly to each Bishop to provide school fees, tuition, books, and uniforms, ensuring that the children receive education and a measure of stability needed to rebuild their minds.

Evening Prayer & Confession Service
Saturday - April 19 - 5:00 p.m.
On the 3rd Saturday of each month, there will be a quiet service of Evening Prayer, followed by the opportunity for people to give their confessions if they so desire. 

This will be a short, meditative service with no music or other embellishments--just a time to quietly sit and meditate, pray and give thanks to God for his goodness.
