Welcome to Grace!

We are…..

  • A center for worship and fellowship;
  • A school for discipleship and stewardship; and
  • A community for healing and outreach.

We live our mission through regular participation in the Eucharist and the practice of our baptismal promises. Traditional Eucharistic liturgy and fine music are hallmarks of worship at our parish. Please explore our website to get to know us or, better yet, come visit!

5 Marks of Love – A Monday Night Lenten Series

In this six-week series, we will examine and reflect on the ways in which God’s Life and God’s Mission express themselves in and through us. Inspired by the Anglican “Marks of Mission,” we will look for signs of God’s presence and activity in our lives, in our communities, and in the world around us. Each week, we will explore one of the “Marks,” allowing our speakers to use their different backgrounds and expertise to help us reflect on what God is doing in our lives and in our world.

We are “Living Life Marked as Christ’s Own,” and because Christ’s life is expressed in and through us, we have a responsibility to

1. Proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom (TELL)

2. Teach, baptize, and nurture new believers (TEACH)

3. Respond to human need by loving service (TEND)

4. Transform unjust structures, challenge violence of every kind, and pursue peace and reconciliation (TRANSFORM)

5. Strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth (TREASURE)

This six-week study will begin on Sunday, March 5 during the forum hour. This will replace the Parent Forum, normally scheduled for the first Sunday of the month and is open to all who are interested in learning about the series. Even if you are unable to participate in the Monday night studies, feel free to come and pick up a workbook and listen to the introduction. The Brothers of SSJE and VTS have made a daily email and video that anyone can access.
