Mission Statement

We are a welcoming and diverse community of faith that seeks to follow the way of
Jesus Christ by serving and worshiping God.

Our beliefs:

  • Worshiping in the love of Christ’s teachings and the Episcopal tradition reveals God more clearly so that we understand His call to us and live a life of faith.
  • Every spiritual journey is unique and nurtured by curiosity about God and the
    nature of faith.
  • We show our love of Jesus through outreach to the world around us.
  • Stewardship, the nurturing of our earth and the sharing of our resources and
    gifts, is an essential part of who we are.
  • An awareness of critical issues inspires us to align ourselves with the
    teachings of Jesus.
  • Opportunities for fellowship strengthen the bonds of a community.
  • Christian education at all ages deepens our relationship with God.

    I was baptized and confirmed at Grace Church in 1943.
    I am glad you are still going strong.
    God be with you in your search for a new Rector.
    I am in Venice Fl. at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.
    we are just starting to look for a new Rector.
    God Be With You,
    Robert Welham,

      I was also baptized and confirmed at Grace Church in the 1940s. Fr Albert Van Duzer was our much loved Rector during this time. After recently going through a lengthy discernment process we have happily found our new Rector and have enthusiastic welcomed Fr Bob Fitzpatrick and his wife Cathy.
      I wish you all the best in your search.

      Your last name sounds familiar to me. Wonder if we might have known one another back then…..
