Our Mission & Vision

The VISION of Grace Episcopal Church:

As a welcoming congregation, we share the transformational power of God by building up each other through worship and spiritual formation; we glorify God by building up community through caring and outreach.

The MISSION of Grace Episcopal Church is to:

Welcome • Transform
Build Up • Reach Out • Glorify God

Grace Episcopal Church believes that as children of God, we are all ministers, all the time.

Ministry is all that goes on among the people of Grace Church, whether it happens formally or informally. The Church gives us a setting for finding opportunities to develop our ministry as an open, caring, Christian community, so that we might celebrate God's love in ourselves and others.

Some of us assist during worship services as acolytes, lectors, eucharistic ministers, ushers, greeters, and altar guild. Some of us sing in the choir or play music during worship services. Some of us host the coffee hour after services, and others organize skating parties, ski trips, picnics, and special dinners.

Some of us teach in Sunday school; some are called to form small groups to explore our faith; some to support community outreach efforts, where we serve God's people in various ways. These activities are not separate but are all expressions of the same ministry, that of serving God through serving the church and the community. We have identified some general areas of ministry that bind us together in parish life:

  • Outreach - support for local, national, and international organizations and reaching out in Jesus' name
  • Children and Young People - Sunday School classes for children of all ages and childcare provision during services
  • Adult Education - adult Bible Study, formation classes, book groups and reflection groups
  • Fellowship - organizing parties, outings, dinners and luncheons, field trips, picnics, and holiday programs
  • Stewardship - planned long-term financial giving & pledging; gifts of time and effort in support of parish activities and outreach
  • Buildings and Grounds - care and maintenance of the church and our campus grounds
  • Worship - service as acolytes, eucharistic ministers, and lectors, and planning worship programs to explore the many avenues of faith
  • Administration - maintaining the business of the church with office staff and facillitating the use of the building by visiting groups

Join us in our ministry as we proclaim God's love and God's redeeming reign!
