ANNUAL EVENTS

Bach Festival

 

The annual Bach festival is organized and directed by Grace Church’s organist/choirmaster, Francine Maté, DMA, and features performers from the United States and Germany. Visit Grace’s Bach Festival for a full description of the concerts and performers.

Annual Meeting

The next annual meeting will take place in November of 2024. At this gathering, the whole congregation receives and considers reports from the church’s various organizations and ministries, as well as a year-to-date financial report with year-end projections. Also, members in good standing vote for representatives to the church’s Vestry (governing board) and for Senior and Junior Warden, the parish’s chief lay officials.

Taste of Georgetown

Don’t miss The Taste of Georgetown! This event generally takes place on the first Saturday of October.  

This annual event offers a true “Taste” of the unique culinary flavors of Georgetown, as well as opportunities to participate in family activities, and purchase raffle tickets for excellent prizes donated by local businesses.

The “Taste of Georgetown” brings friends far and near to lower Georgetown, and offers live music and activities in addition to food.

For many years Grace Church and the Georgetown Ministry Center (GMC) for the homeless have worked together to organize and staff the event, which helps support GMC’s work with our homeless neighbors.

In 2004, the Georgetown Partnership — Business Improvement District (“BID”) joined with Grace Church and GMC to present this very special community and family event, and the partnership continues.

The “Taste” needs lots of volunteers to be successful. Contact the Grace office if you can help sell tickets, greet and direct guests and customers, set up and take down tents, tables and food venues, and count and deposit revenues. Volunteers generally receive 2 free tasting tickets, a t-shirt, and discounted parking.

Net revenues from the event are donated to the Georgetown Ministry Center for the homeless.
