GRACE IS A PLACE--

 

that seeks to welcome, include, transform;

where all may encounter God in community;

where we engage God's Word through:

      scripture, tradition, and reason

      with our ears, our hearts, and our minds;

where connections happen--with God

      and neighbor and one another.

Our Mission is to learn, teach, and live God's Word, uniting in a growing family of faith and sacramental tradition and actively including and loving all.
Welcome!

 

Thank you for visiting the Grace Church website. Grace is a welcoming and inclusive community of faith. Whether you are a person of steadfast faith or whether you wonder or question, you are welcome here. Come and see! Come by yourself or with a partner or spouse or your family. Come if you are young or not so young, with too much or too little to do, seeking peace or company. Travel with others on this amazing, challenging journey of our God-given and Spirit-lead life.

Search Committee

The Search Committee organized Small Group input meetings which took place in November.

We gathered input on thoughts, wants, needs, skills desired in a new rector from many Grace members in these small groups.

This Small Group input coupled with the very successful CAT survey will be the foundation for the Grace Church and new rector profile that will be posted on the Chicago Diocesan web site for potential candidates to review.
