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.

As with any goodbye this will be bittersweet; separating from the many relationships, but carrying forward the memories of our work together at Grace. Gloria is looking forward to continuing ministry in our diocese, travel, and time with family!

 

With formal announcement of Gloria’s resignation, effective November 15th, initial steps have been taken in the process that will result in the calling of a successor rector to Grace.
