Keep an eye on this page, and on News & Events, for information about other summer programs and ministries.

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.
