Please NOTE that due to a recent and unexpected death in the family, planned events are subject to rescheduling per service arrangements. It is imperative that you register for retreats and give contact information in the event that that becomes necessary at any time, but especially now. Thank you for your understanding.
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.

*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!

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. To that end, A Place of Grace has set a communal goal of 950 mission hours by May 2nd, 2020. To date, we have 252.07/950 hours.
In July, we will work with Uni-Pres Kindercottage (7/10), Operation Blessing (7/24) and Churches on the Streets (Alton) (7/27). In August, we will work with Hoyleton Youth & Family Services (8/7) and Riverbend Family Ministries (8/21). 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.
