News & Events
Grace Church, a big-hearted, air-conditioned Episcopal parish in lower Georgetown, invites you to join us for worship and programming.
Keep an eye on this page, and on Upcoming Events, for information about special Epiphany and Lenten offerings in winter and early spring: a special young people’s and homily on February 2, the Feast of the Presentation (as well as Groundhog Day); a Fat Sunday party on March 2, the last Sunday before Lent; Ash Wednesday services on March 5; and a special Lenten program on Sunday evenings. Also, our joint Youth Group (with St. John’s, Georgetown), now half a year old and doing well, will sponsor monthly gatherings and activities for the young people of both parishes, with a three-fold focus on fun, service and spirituality.
Sunday morning services at Grace combine simplicity, informality and reverence, continuing the tradition that drew the working people of a rough-and-tumble neighborhood to Grace at its founding nearly 150 years ago.
Volunteers and staff work together to provide high-quality Christian education for our youngest parishioners. The Georgetown Montessori School meets here on weekdays. Adult education programs invite animated discussion of Christian faith and its connection with the pressing issues of modern living, both personal and public.
Music and arts programming at Grace begins with Sunday worship and our outstanding choir, organist/choirmaster and organ. But it doesn’t end there. Blues, jazz and Bach; poetry both traditional and contemporary; community and cutting-edge theater; these and other expressions of the creative spirit find a home at Grace.
From the time its Pastor was known as the principal source of financial assistance for struggling dockworkers, canal diggers and their families, Grace has devoted itself to the service of those in need. Through a partnership with the Georgetown Ministry Center and our own Saturday community lunch and conversation, we make the homeless and marginally housed people of Georgetown a special focus of concern.
Please click around our website, read our blog, and learn more about us through Twitter and Facebook. We welcome you, in this season of new life and always, to Grace Church.
