A Place of Grace May 2021 Calendar
NOTE: Due to COVID-19, A Place of Grace will continue digital and remote retreats for the foreseeable future.
5/27 May Prayer Art Retreat via Zoom at 6 p.m. See the
APOG Facebook Page for the event link for
information and a registration link and deadline.
Non-contracted retreats are hosted by A Place of Grace. They are designed around the monthly theme, and are always open to the public.
Please RSVP to events on the Facebook event listings or by completing the RSVP on this page. If an event needs to be canceled due to weather, illness, or emergency, I will need to know how to contact you with that information. You can also check this page and the APOG Facebook page the day of the event to be sure no cancellation is posted.
Open Dates for Contracted Retreats
All retreats are available in digital format only.
Group Digital/Remote Retreats require a three month lead time for planning and preparation. Plan now for your spring and summer retreats!
Call, email, or message me through this site if you are interested in scheduling a retreat.
*Contracted retreats are public or private retreats hosted in partnership with A Place of Grace. These retreats may offer the same monthly theme or may be custom-designed for your group’s particular needs. They can be held in a home, a church, a community center, or a place of business, and the partnering host issues invitations to guests. Hosts may choose to invite guests to bring offerings or may make an offering to cover the cost of the retreat for everyone. Call 618-410-5060 to schedule a retreat with Julie!
A Place of Grace has a new Internet service and the difference is significant! The connection is more stable. The upload and download speeds are faster. This is an answered prayer! While I look forward to returning to in-person events in good time, in-person events can’t connect friends from both coasts of the continental US or family members flung around the world like Zoom can for retreats. I am SO EXCITED to be able to offer this to the APOG community with confidence! Schedule a retreat with me today and see for yourself how well it works! 😊

As Founder and Creative Executive Director of A Place of Grace, I am committed to supporting area ministries and agencies. One of the ways I believe that gets accomplished is by showing up to be the hands and feet and heart of Christ at work in the world. We work with each of seven local agencies once each quarter. Our communal goal for May 2021 is 1000 hours! As ofMarch 31st, we have logged 1443.45/1000 hours.
We will create items for our mission partners, continuing to work remotely, on 4/14 and 4/28. Mark your calendar for these Mission Madness events and email or PM Julie to RSVP. Those who wish to volunteer should contact Julie at least a couple of days ahead for a porch-drop of supplies.
Contact Julie through the form on this page to get more information. We would LOVE to have you participate with us in making gifts for local agencies!
You are invited to participate with us! Mark your calendar for the Mission Madness events and email or PM Julie to RSVP. Those who wish to volunteer should contact Julie at least a couple of days ahead to get departure details since we often try to carpool to Mission Madness events.
Please plan to wear an APOG shirt, which you can purchase at exactly the cost I pay for them. Shirts need to be ordered in advance in order to have them to wear. We look forward to working alongside you in a spirit of community! Come be part of this transformative, wonder-filled, healing work.

Julie participated in the 25th Seminar for Certified Zentangle(R) Teacher Training in June, 2019, trained by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. In addition to creating art as a personal spiritual practice, Julie also incorporates the Zentangle(R) method in Prayer Art Retreats in a variety of contexts, including church groups, friend gatherings, and at a local art gallery.
