Coffee Hour

Offered every Sunday after second worship service, the coffee hour at Grace Church has been named one of the best in the city by Washington City Paper. Several parishioners are known for pulling out all the stops to put on an elegant spread, while others provide simple fare that’s also wonderful. The true highlight of coffee hour each week is the time spent in fellowship with Grace members and visitors alike.

Grace Church has a special tradition designed to foster companionship and friendships through a series of potluck dinners in members’ homes.

Koinonia (coin-oh-nee’-ah) is the Greek word for fellowship. There’s nothing formal about the evenings together and no agenda-just a chance to get to know some of the people of Grace with good food and conversation.

Gatherings can be for dinner, brunch, a “cocktail hour,” or whatever format is most convenient for the group. Other venues besides members’ homes are fine too—including Grace Church itself, by prior arrangement.
