GRACE

Episcopal Church

Ceremonies

As members of the historical Episcopal (Anglican) Church, we at Grace, recognize and seek to live into the traditional sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Matrimony passed down to us as “outward and visible signs of an inward and spiritual grace”… as well as other sacred ceremonies such as Funerals, during which we not only memorialize those who have died but also boldly proclaim Jesus' promise of a Resurrected life out of death.

We work as individuals and as a parish through our various worship services, Bible Studies, teaching series and discussion groups to more deeply understand the purpose, theology and Biblical perspective from which all these sacred ceremonies stem. 

 

It is our hope at Grace that through the Holy Spirit, these sacred moments will help us grow in Christ, not only as his witnesses to the world, but as those who walk together in joy and sorrow as a loving family. We welcome all those who would join with us in the fellowship and faith of Jesus Christ.   

The blessed bedlam of a Baptism warms the congregation's heart

   in the image of God he created them;
   male and female he created them.
