Welcome to Grace Church!

Hallmarks of Grace

Grace Episcopal Church is a friendly congregation marked by a commitment to
service and witness
in our community,
the arts of all kinds,
especially music, with offerings ranging from blues to Bach;
simple but reverent worship;
education and formation
for children and adults alike, with wide-ranging conversations about faith and life; 
and
building community
both within and without the church’s walls and the gates opening onto its grounds.
