  • life-giving liturgical worship
  • 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!

At Grace Church, Fellowship is a Big Deal!  We love to build connection, have fun and eat food together!  Our community offers many ways to engage in connection, support and fellowship. Our volunteer Fellowship Ministry Team and other ministry teams help coordinate many of these activities.

Please explore some of the ways we often engage in fellowship throughout the church year.   If you see something that speaks to you, or if you can lend your hands, reach out to the Fellowship Committee (fellowship.committee@gracealex.org) to get involved, help make stuff happen, and have fun!

Sunday Morning Coffee Hours

Coffee Hour is an informal fellowship time following Sunday morning worship services. Everyone is invited (and we have sponsored special coffee hours for the little ones before Sunday School, too)!

Foyer Groups

Small groups of parishioners, both married couples and singles, get together for a monthly dinner.  It is a great way to get to know people and put names together with faces!  These dinners can take place in one another’s homes, in the church, restaurants, in parks, or at other venues as decided by the members of each Foyer Group.  Foyer Groups for families who wish to include children are also a mainstay.

Receptions, Parties, and Special Events

Grace Church enjoys receptions, parties, and special events for a variety of occasions and celebrations, including our world famous Easter Vigil Agape Feast!  Volunteers are needed to set up, bring food, work in the kitchen, and clean up.

Chili Bowl

It’s not the Rose Bowl, or the Fiesta Bowl, or even the Orange Bowl. It’s the Chili Bowl. The Chili Bowl is the only bowl that’s guaranteed to provide fellowship, fun and, of course, chili.  It typically takes place on the Sunday before the Super Bowl.

Annual Picnic

Each year, to welcome summer and mark the change from our parish education year, we have a family picnic on the grounds behind the church.

Shrine Mont Parish Retreat

On the first weekend after Labor Day, Grace Church parishioners attend the annual parish retreat at Shrine Mont, the Episcopal Diocesan Cathedral Shrine near Orkney Springs, Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The weekend is filled with worship, fellowship, and many other optional fun activities. Activities begin late on Friday afternoon and conclude on Sunday afternoon after lunch. Registration takes place throughout the summer.

TNT – Twenties-N-Thirties Group

Young adults looking for fellowship may find their peeps in the Grace Church Twenties and Thirties (TNT) group. TNT has hosted events such as weekly Bible Study, Brunch, Potlucks, Happy Hour, and Clothing and Basket drives. Even though Grace Church is an Episcopal Church, we welcome everyone from all different walks of life (Christian and non-Christian) to come, participate, and have fun. We provide a safe and open environment for everyone to discuss common life concerns and enjoy Christian fellowship, while we gather for social occasions and service projects.
