The Book Study Group organizes itself around authors who focus on living more fully from one’s soul in the second half of life. The life of Christ is often used by such authors as a paradigm for this. 2nd Wednesdays at 7:30 pm; meeting locations vary either in homes or at Grace. Previous read have included most recently, Days of Awe and Wonder by Marcus Borg, Phyllis Tickle’s The Great Emergence, Richard Rohr’s The Naked Now and Nadia Bolz-Weber’s Accidental Saints.
Please email Izabella for latest meeting dates and location, and with any other questions.
Men’s Spirituality Group
This group was reconstituted in 2018 and meets on the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings from 9:30 – 11 am. Please contact Fred Barnett here for more information.
Good Book Club returns!
Grace continues to participate in Forward Movement’s Good Book Club during this Epiphany season. The Good Book club includes anyone committed to the daily reading of the same book of the Bible at the same time. We're reading Paul's epistle to the Romans, together with thousands of Episcopalians across the church. Watch for pop-up discussion groups at coffee hour. A closed Facebook group provided a space and community for comments and questions at all hours. More on the Good Book Club here.
One Book, One Oak Park
For the last two years, Grace has participated in the Oak Park Public Library summer program One Book, One Oak Park with a group discussion of the work selected by the library. We’re looking forward to the 2019 selection.
This group seeks to connect with those in their 20s and 30s (or so!) as we discuss spirituality and enjoy social time together. Connect with the 20s/30s Group on Facebook here. We have brunch at a nearby restaurant on the 2nd Sunday of the month. Meet us at the back of the church after the 10:30 service.

9:30 – 10:15 am in the Parish Hall
Outreach Series: Representatives from various community and social service ministries have been invited to speak. In March, we are looking to hear about St. Leonard's Ministries in Chicago. Several parishioners volunteer regularly with St. Leonard's and associated programs.
Children’s and Youth Formation does not meet on 1st Sundays to coordinate with the youth choir rehearsal schedule. As a parallel activity for all ages, we’re pleased to offer large format coloring posters, related to scripture, as a venue for all ages to come together colorfully and enjoy each other’s company. Coloring is also in the parish hall so that one may listen and color, if so desired.
