"Our nation is spiritually hungry and at the same time starving for lack of gospel truth being lived out in daily practice. As an authentic experession of living faith in Jesus Christ, the Anglican way is beginning to capture the attention of a new generation seeking God." The Reverend Dr. Samuel Schutz (ordained by Bishop Bill Murdoch, ADNE, June 26, 2010 at All Saints Church in Amesbury.
We pray for God's blessings on our humble beginning. We seek his presence and trust in him. We rest in the Lord and wait patiently for him. We desire to live the gospel truth in our daily lives and ask that the Holy Sprit guide us on our Lord's chosen path.
The Bishop pays a visit
On March 11th our first Bishop Bill Murdoch traveled to the Fitchburg, Leominster area to celebrate the Eucharist with all of us at Grace Anglican. He reminded us that, since we are a mission of the ADNE he is our Rector. At a fellowship luncheon following our service he shared with us his visit to Calcutta and his meeting with Mother Theresa. A memory that still brings tears to his eyes. Mother Theresa brought the transforming love of Jesus to all she met. A humble woman she ministered to all the Lord sent to her. She went out into her community to serve. We hope to do the same.
Grace for Kids
Our own Susan Latimer has established "Grace for Kids" a 501c3 charity whose purpose is to provide resources for children in need. This mission was birthed at Grace Anglican in 2015 when Susan brought fresh fruit to chidren living in a motel across from where we worshipped. In 2016 the familes left the motel and moved into apartment units with help from the governor. We continued to receive donations for this mission. Time moved on. In February of this year Susan Incorporated and on May 19, 2019 we were able to present to Grace for Kids, Inc. a check for $10,148.69. Praise God!
