Outreach

The community of Grace extends into many corners of the Washington DC community.

We do this through action

  • Grace’s Table: This fellowship provides and shares a meal at 11:30 am on Saturdays for persons who are homeless or on the margins of being homeless.
  • Congregation-Based Shelter: In 1992 several Georgetown congregations came together to provide ten homeless men and women with dinner and breakfast and a safe and warm place to sleep from November through March. The shelter rotates each week to a new congregation.
  • Georgetown Ministry Center: Established in 1987, the GMC offers counseling, information, referral services, showers and laundry services for the homeless people of Georgetown.
  • Georgetown University Campus Ministry

and advocacy

  • Washington Interfaith Network (WIN): WIN is a multi-ethnic, interfaith, non-partisan political-advocacy organization consisting of dues-paying member congregations and other entities working to improve life for all residents in the District of Columbia. Grace Church has belonged to the Washington Interfaith Network (WIN) since September 2007.
  • Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ): Grace’s Rector, Rev. John Graham, and several Grace members, participate in IWJ’s efforts to support organizing efforts among immigrants and other workers in the DC area.
  • Visitors’ Service Center: Rev. John Graham and parishioner Peter Wallace serve on the board of this non-profit, which seeks to keep offenders and ex-offenders connected to their communities.
