Letter from Soul in the City Team on May 1st:
Dear Soul in the City Families,
We are reaching out to our Soul Families with a heavy heart to announce that due to COVID-19, Soul in the City 2020 will be cancelled. Please know that this was a very difficult decision for me and the staff at Grace to come to. It was after many hours in prayer and discernment that we finally decided for the safety of our volunteers, campers and worksites, cancelling for 2020 would be best.
If you have already registered, we will automatically refund your full registration amount in the same fashion that you paid. Meaning, if you wrote a check, we will mail your full refund via check or if you paid via Cleargive (online payment), then you should receive a full refund to the account it was previously drafted from.
We would encourage students and families to visit our website through Grace Anglican Church at (www.graceanglican.church). Here you can find ways to still experience fellowship through this difficult and uncharted times. Through this site, we host many opportunities for students of all ages and adults, as well as families, to connect and find support. We will also, post all updated events and activities as the government releases social distancing restrictions. I’m prayerful, this too shall pass.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the cancellation of Soul in the City, please feel free to contact me. I’m reminded daily of the love that God has for all of us even in trying times. I hope everyone will find comfort in scripture from Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I look forward to the day when we see your smiling faces in person and worship together again.

For one week each summer, Grace Anglican Church hosts hundreds of rising 7th to 12th grade students on campus. Students will live on campus for the week in a mission-styled setting. They sleep in sleeping bags, shower in mission-styled showers, and serve during the day at various mission sites in and around Jacksonville, FL. At night the students come together in The Barn to worship and hear from different speakers throughout the week. For more information, please visit: www.sitcfl.com.
