Celebrating Life At Grace

The center of all that we do at Grace is the worship of God as revealed to us in the person of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.  This is our principle call as Christians and is the means by which we are nourished so that we might be the hands and feet of our Risen Lord in our community and the world.  On this page please find information about Music, and celebrations of life including Baptisms, Weddings, and Funerals.

Music

Parish Musician, John Keister, facilitates music for worship.

Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that breathes praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!      – Psalm 150

Baptisms

Information

Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ’s Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God.

Baptism at Grace will surround you and your family with a circle of love and support throughout their life.

Congregations are asked to all in their power to support the person being baptized to live out their life in Christ.  We believe ongoing participation of the family of the person being baptized is crucial.

Families planning for baptisms should contact the Parish Office to set up an appointment with Fr. Travis K. Smith.

Weddings

Grace Church is a wonderful, sacred space for a Christian wedding.  In fact, we think that you will find Grace to be the ideal church for your wedding.  The church is a beautiful stone building built in 1911.  It seats 150 adults comfortably, and may accommodate up to 175 (with a little squeezing).  The building is fully heated and air-conditioned.

The church is located conveniently off of I-95 between Baltimore and Washington near where I-895 (to the Harbor Tunnel) and I-195 (to BWI) intersect with I-95.  Click here to see a map.

We have a Parish Hall which can be made available for your reception.  In addition, we have a relationship with the Elkridge Furnace Inn, an historic manor home, and award-winning reception site located just a mile away.

The initial requirement is that your wedding be a Christian service of worship.  If you are considering having your wedding at Grace’s Historic Stone Church, we ask that you make contact with the Parish Priest to ensure that you can be assisted and supported through the process of preparing for your special day.

Funerals/Celebrations Of Life

The death of a person significant to you calls on our deepest experience and hopes as human beings.  Grace is committed to being a community of deep reverence and spiritual support.

Please contact the Parish Priest as soon as possible so that Grace can indeed work with you to provide support and comfort and to plan an appropriate service.
