2018 Fall Boutique: Endnote

A slow and quiet beginning became a really busy and noisy event, as the 2018 Fall Boutique kicked off on Friday evening, Nov. 2nd. People from the community—regulars and newcomers—were delighted to see the handmade quilts, baskets, jewelry, and other items of interest. On the Boutique’s second day, Saturday, Nov. 3rd, Grace UMC housed this wonderous display of gifts. The room was full of people who constantly said, “Ooh” and “Aah”, as they were amazed at the uniquely handmade quilts and the variety of handiwork. Some visitors said they felt blessed to purchase and contribute to the missions of our church.

We gratefully acknowledge Kathy Perisho, a founder of Creations of Grace, and her sister, Marilyn Hungerford, for designing, creating, and donating some of the quilts for this event. We also appreciate Karen Gallaway, Creation’s director, and the assistance of Bonnie Linton, as well as members of Grace UMC, their families and friends whose efforts made the 2018 Fall Boutique possible and truly memorable.

During the concert, Grace UMC provided free drinks—water and lemonade. Grace UMC plans to have its 2nd concert at the Christmas Tree Lot during the Christmas season at the same location.

During the service, the Choir of Grace praised God’s beautiful creations and the each pet received blessings. Grace UMC appreciates San Ramon Historic Foundation for graciously allowing us to hold services at their site.

Fellowship of Grace

Fellowship of Grace

Although a Korean United Methodist Church said farewell to their children and youth ministry director last June, they have now gained new families and friends in another district as a result of his new appointment. Pastor Peter Hyun Ho Park, a newly appointed local pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in San Ramon, had been the Director of Children’s and Youth Ministry at Berkeley Korean UMC in Oakland for the last five years. What began as a casual conversation between Pastor Park and Rev. Hyok-In Kwon, Senior Pastor of Berkeley Korean UMC, during the last Annual Conference turned into a “Fellowship of Grace” event in which nearly 50 members of Grace UMC and Berkeley Korean UMC gathered and shared Korean food together. . . .
