The Episcopal Church Welcomes You!

Every Perfect Gift
Pledge Campaign 2021

As we share our gifts through and through our service to the world,
we participate in God's ongoing creation of abundance and generosity the Eucharist.
Every pledge is gratefully received and faithfully used for God's mission through Grace. 

The descending dove in the cinquefoil of the Lee window is a wonderful symbol of Grace Church.


Let the dove represent God’s mission of

reconciliation through Jesus Christ.
Let the center circle
represent our full time personnel.

  7/12 of our expenses are for our
Rector, Minister of Music,
