We strive to foster a diverse and loving church community. All are welcome here.
Our LGBTQ Community
Grace Episcopal Church is called to the ministry of reconciliation. We recognize and give thanks for the many diverse gifts of God among us. We celebrate our human family’s diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, age, marital status, physical and mental ability, economic status, faith history, education, sexual orientation, gender identity, and political views.
We affirm that all people are created in the image of God and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God’s love and grace. We welcome the full inclusion of all people in the life and ministries of Grace Episcopal Church as we journey toward reconciliation through Christ. Grace Church strives to be a space where each person feels safe, cared for, loved, and supported to develop who they are in Christ.
We recognize that there are differences among us but believe that we can love alike even though we might not think alike. We invite all people who seek God’s grace to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.
