Due to the COVID-19 recommendation by Bishop Alan Gates, all in person church services have been suspended. However we will be conducting virtual services via Facebook Live. Please check our Facebook Page or this website for up to date information.

 

After the quarantines are lifted, we will resume normal schedules. Come as you are, we welcome EVERYONE, no exceptions

Sundays 8:00 AM- Join us for a quiet service, and contemplate the divine.

Sundays 10:00 AM- We join the choir to sing joyful hymns in this child friendly service. Come and celebrate fellowship together with a coffee hour afterward.

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.

We are here to offer you a Radical Welcome!  Every person at Grace has a different reason why they come to worship God in this community and why they think Grace is special.  Perhaps it’s the strong commitment to children and youth, the outreach we do in our community, or the friendships formed over time.  Everyone, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey is welcome.

 

The best way to get to know more about this church community is to worship with us.  Please join us for Sunday services, stay for a cup of coffee afterwards, and explore what we’re about.  We think you’ll find that this is a warm, welcoming, and lively community where people are supported in their journey towards Christ.

 

Peace & Blessings,

The Family at Grace Episcopal Church
