  • joyful community
  • empowering others

We live our mission through worship, in which lay adults, children and youth participate alongside our clergy.  Traditional, life-giving Eucharistic liturgy and fine music are hallmarks of worship at our parish, and we have weekly services in both English and Spanish.  We create a joyful community with a harvest of fellowship activities and events for all ages.  We empower and serve others through vital ministries, particularly around feeding the hungry.  Please explore our website to get to know us or, better yet, come visit!

Children and Youth

“Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” (Matthew 19:14)

Grace Church offers a full array of programs for children and youth, providing opportunities for all ages to explore the mystery of God’s presence in our lives, to hear God’s invitation for spiritual experience, to listen for what God is saying, and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives. And to have fun!!

To register for the 2023-24 programs, please complete this form. New participants are welcome to join at any time during the year!

A professionally staffed nursery is available on Sunday mornings for children six weeks to 2 years old.  Children’s Chapel introduces children beginning at age 3 to the Way of Jesus’ Love in a special worship session Sunday mornings just for them.  Our littlest worshippers might also enjoy participating in Little Church, a Sunday worship service especially catered to our youngest members!

Sunday School is broken by age group for the elementary school set.  Middle schoolers and high schoolers participate in Rite 13, J2A, and EYC programs.  These youth also meet for dinner and evening activities monthly during the school year. There are also many special events appealing to children and youth throughout the year, which have included our Christmas Pageant, Trunk-or-Treat, Chili Bowl cook-off, holiday celebrations, and trips to the Diocese of Virginia’s Shrine Mont Camp.
