Book Study

Forgive: Why Should I and How Can I?
By: Tim Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

Meaningful forgiveness is one of the hardest things a person can do. Even so, meaningful forgiveness should be a central part of everyone’s lives. This begs the question, Why should I and how can I?

Women’s Bible Study

In this study on Jesus & Women: In the First Century and Now by Kristi McLelland,  she takes readers back to when Jesus walked the earth in the first century. She illustrates the culture and the history to give readers a fuller understanding of Jesus’s stories and teachings. Participants explore how Jesus restores honor and dignity to women in the first century and to women of today, while acquiring a deeper insight and perspective into familiar Bible stories.



Suffering is often the largest obstacle for people to be able to trust in a God that is good and loving.  If God is in fact trusting and loving, and He is, why is there so much suffering in the world?  Where does evil come from?  Does suffering have a purpose?  And if so, what is it?  All these questions were discussed during our Book Study conducted by Fr. Chris Rodriguez and Fr. Josh Gritter.

Book Study:
The Screwtape Letters

CS Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters was written after Lewis’ brother narrowly escaped from the Nazis at Dunkirk, the Screwtape Letters are 31 short letters between demons as they work to corrupt and secure the soul of a young man for eternity.

This book was an enormous influence on Fr. Rodriguez, as it made him see the spiritual warfare in his own life and the solution that only Jesus Christ can give.

Lenten Book Study: The Problem of Pain

If God is a god of love, why is there suffering in the world? Does evil disprove the existence of God or at least call into question His character? Why do bad things happen to good people? Does suffering have a purpose? Join us as we examine these questions and others as the Rector leads us on a four-part study of C.S. Lewis’ book, The Problem of Pain.

Presented by Doug Ell, author of Counting to God, member of Trinity Episcopal Church and former Vestry member, this two-part series focuses on the new DNA and other scientific evidence for the literal truth of the Book of Genesis – a real Adam and Eve, a real Noah, and a real worldwide flood. Is Genesis history? If so, would that strengthen your faith? Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Doug Ell speak on this fascinating topic that is so applicable to our faith and daily life.

Our two-part video series is available here for your convenience.

FoyerDinners Website Image


Foyer Groups are a fun and easy way for parishioners (21 years & older) to gather together on a regular, but informal basis for purely social reasons – to enjoy one another’s company, to strengthen bonds of community, to meet new members and just get to know other people who share a common interest in Grace, but with whom we might not otherwise interact. It’s a means to develop new friendships and deepen old ones and are a way to make our church to feel smaller and warmer. There is no agenda or plan – just casual fellowship and a refreshing meal.

Groups are made up of a cross section of the parish. The hope is that out of the meetings, friendships develop among people who might not have any other opportunity to meet and get to know each other.
