Grace Church is a spiritual home for you. Even if you have happened upon this church from our website we want you to know that there is a family here waiting for you. While most of our journeys to God begin with Baptism we want you to know that all are welcome to come forward for Holy Communion. There you can decide to receive a blessing from one of our ministers, or to unite your life to the great offering of God in Jesus Christ by receiving his Body and Blood by faith through the bread and wine distributed at the altar. Below you will find an outline of our two principle Sunday services of Holy Eucharist.
The 7:30 a.m. service on Sunday at the Historic Stone Church is an intimate spoken service without music.
The 10:00 a.m. service on Sunday is at the Family Life Center in the Parish Hall. While the service follows the same order as the 7:30, music selections are included at various parts of the service. All are encouraged to sing or make a joyful noise during Worship. The Children (aged 3 to 12) are called forward and invited to “Children’s Chapel” They rejoin the service during the Peace to rejoin their families or friends for the Eucharist.
Fellowship time follows both services with coffee, tea, and light refreshments.
A traditional service that follows the Holy Eucharist Rite Two in our 1979 Book of Common Prayer.
