We come together to be grace for one another and God’s world. Representing an expanding diversity of ages, experiences, ethnicities, genders, orientations, and perspectives we listen to stories from Scripture and our lives too. As we listen, the Spirit births among us an insistent and faithfully stubborn sense of hope. Through prayer, shared meals, and the many other ways in which we are formed in faith, we seek ways of being and serving that embody Christ’s love. Join us!

Prayer & Worship
Prayer is at the center of our life at Grace Church. Our services of worship are traditional while also allowing room for the Spirit to do new things. We gather, we listen, we bless, we break bread, and we share. All are welcome to receive communion at Grace. From this place of mercy and love, we’re sent out into the world renewed, with strength and courage to serve God and neighbor too.

Music is a vital part of life at Grace. Our congregation sings a breadth of Episcopal hymnody including traditional Anglican music, chant, African American spirituals, Hispanic/Latino hymns, and more. Our Pasi organ supports us. Our Chamber Choir leads us. As Grace, we delight in and are inspired by the prayer that is song.
Our Hispanic/Latino ministries are expanding, led by a growing number of Spanish speaking members. Our worship bulletins, service music, and readings are in both English and Spanish. Our ministry team meets monthly to reflect on and plan for growth as we seek to welcome all who might find a home at Grace Church.

Formation in faith is a life-long journey. At Grace it’s also a participatory experience with opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds. We make room for questions here, gentle explorations, and also, deep dives. Through Sunday Forums, Bible studies, EFM and other opportunities, we grow in knowledge of ourselves, each other, and our God.
Sunday Forum: 9:15-10:15 via zoom
Series: What does it mean that God loves everyone?
Join us for a series in adult forum as we gather around and consider this question and the implications of God’s love for all people. If you have any questions or would like more information on the series, contact Assistant for Spiritual Formation, Amber Morris, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grace is intentional about building and being community. We are a diversity of ages, ethnicities, family configurations, orientations, political persuasions and more, and here at Grace, we find each other. We have Coffee in the Commons, Pizza Sundays, Pints and Perspectives, and Holy Chow. We dance at our annual Oktoberfest celebration and host picnics, tailgates and other events that bring us together as Grace.
Grace families come in all shapes and sizes. We come together for support, formation, and fun growing in faith as we go and celebrating the gifts all ages bring to life at Grace. If interested in information on upcoming events, contact Sarah Shea at email@example.com
