Welcome to Grace Episcopal Church!
We welcome all who would like to experience Grace Church as a living faith community.
Our core values are "to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as our self"; and "to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being" (Book of Common Prayer, p.305).
This is our prayer for our church. We invite you to to join us in praying it and living it and to come and see what we're doing as we grow.
May our church be a place where our focus is on God and our neighbor; where multiplicity of identities is sought; where we remember that we are all equally in relationship with God, who is greater than we are. Where we gather together to be nourished and fed by our common God.
May we remember that we are in relationship with each other and that we are inter-reliant on each other. That each of us is important and needed for our church and our Island to thrive. May our Church be a place where we can see Christ in each other; remember who we are; work together for the common good; and to share what we have been given with our wider community.
God bless you,

Children, Youth and Families of Grace
Our Children’s Ministry is here to serve children, youth, and families of Grace. Its mission is to engage children in a loving, nurturing church community and to engage whole families in a community of faith. It is to provide spiritual formation opportunities for both children and parents, and to be cognizant of opportunities for children and families to play valuable roles in the church. The children’s program is led by Leigh Ann Yuen and runs year-round during the 10:00AM service.

"Backpacks go with us wherever we go ... Our backpacks are a reminder that wherever we go, whatever we do, Jesus goes with us."
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals. Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
