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.

Children

At this time, our Godly Play Children's Sunday School for K-4th grade and our supervised nursery for pre-K are on recess.

Children worship with their families

and the congregation

We are seeking our next Rector

If you still want to teach and lead a faith community
If “slow down a bit” does not mean “done”
If you need more time available for multiple interests
If great health care options are desired
If you would enjoy living in a historic town
If you like a variety of outdoor sports and activities
If you like rolling topography with rivers, lakes, and beautiful long views
If you like the idea that the symphony and live theater are affordable
If 2023 is the year to cut back on your weekly service hours
If you have looked at enough red lights and taillights
If you want to marvel at the sparkling night sky

best they can be

Our Worship

All services at Grace are now offered

in person with open and full attendance. 

They also continue on YouTube and Zoom, and in addition, recordings are posted on Facebook, YouTube, and this website.

Sundays are services of Holy Eucharist

with congregational singing led by the Grace Choir and musicians. Communion returns to the altar rail with only the wafer offered at this time.

There is Social Hour following worship.
