Church Life: Fellowship & Service

Service and fellowship go hand in hand at Grace. Grace members can be found volunteering at the local food pantry, getting together in “Supper Shuffles,” cooking in the church kitchen, teaching Sunday School, visiting shut-ins, discussing movies and literature, studying the Bible, or stuffing envelopes for a mailing. Join us!



See the Grace Church Calendar for information on specific events.
