Welcome.   May this website be a portal, a threshold to cross and enter the life of a vibrant Christian community, whether you've never attended a service here or you've come here for years. The people of Grace seek to extend a welcome to all kinds of people - from the completely convinced to the seriously doubtful. We love children and are willing to tangle with thorny issues. We do ministry among ourselves and reach out to the larger world. We enjoy a variety of musical experience, huge potluck dinners and creative, outdoor Easter celebrations alongside quiet, traditional worship services.

If you're already a member, my hope is this website helps you stay informed and connected. If you're looking for a church, either for one service or to make your spiritual home, may it provide just enough that you're intrigued and want to discover for yourself what is bubbling and alive right now here in this uniquely beautiful parish that's well over 300 years old. Early in his ministry, Jesus said to some who were curious about him, "Come and see." My invitation is the same. If you'd like to know more about this community, look at this website and then "come and see."
