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.

Worshiping and Serving Since 1873

    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…..

      Hello Michael,
      I apologize for the delay in our response to you. Thank you so much for thinking of Grace Church and St. Clare’s Thrift Shoppe!
      Yes, we are accepting donations to our St. Clare’s Thrift Shoppe. You can leave donations at any time at the red door entrance to the church adjacent to our parking lot. Because of Covid-19 regulations, we are not allowed to accept donations of any toys or electronics at this time. Thank you again, and God Bless you!
