It’s Time to Stop Solitary Confinement!

Grace Church has always led in the fight to stop the practice of youth solitary confinement. We called for it to end, publicly, and now we need to make sure it happens. However, we need your help in accomplishing this goal.

Please join us at Grace Church, along with the Alliance of Communities Transforming Syracuse (ACTS), if you are willing to learn about the issue and help out.

If you cannot attend, please consider helping us from home by researching “what works” in serving youth in custody. Please contact us at gracesyracuse@gmail.com with any helpful findings.

You can also help us by spreading the word, either in person or on social media. Using hashtags such as #GraceSyracuse #StopSolitary #EndSolitary and #SolitaryConfinement can be quite helpful when disseminating information about ending this practice. Spreading the word can go a long way in helping us with our fight. Please stay tuned to Grace Syracuse’s website, Facebook page, and other social media pages for more information

Summer Book Club at Grace Church

searching-for-sundayEscape the heat of summer with a good book and cool drink. Join us Monday nights starting July 11th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm to discuss Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans.

“If you need a book to pastor you, befriend you, pick you up and dust you off, and maybe even give you a spiritual kiss on the cheek and a devotional kick in the pants, you’ve found it here.” Brian D. McLaren

Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn’t want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the gargantuan building budgets, the scandals; church culture seemed so far removed from Jesus. Yet, despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back to Church. So she set out on a journey to understand Church and to find her place in it.
