For the last 2.5 years, having a woman in the pulpit has not been that unusual at Grace Church. Prior to that, however, it was by far the exception rather than the rule. Women are the backbone of our congregation and so for many years, we have celebrated the contributions of lay women in the congregation by having them lead the worship service. This year, we will celebrate Women in Worship Sunday on 1 February. Please join us to celebrate the contributions that these and all the women of our congregation make to our faith community.
