We invite you to feel free to come into our garden to find a place for comfort and reflection. You are always welcome to sit and restore your thoughts and to feel the presence of God.
Five years ago, members of Grace built raised beds on the unused lawn of Grace House and planted a garden. This garden continues to be planted and tended by members.
As Episcopalians we are clear that all persons are empowered and called to ministry at their baptism. Here at Grace, we have come to believe that profound transformation comes from servant ministry with “people not like us”. To that end, we encourage everyone to be involved in this ministry in some way. We would like everyone to find a ministry that matches their passion, their need, and the place where they are. If you want to march for immigration reform, let us know. We have a place for you. If you want to send a bag of fruit for snacks for the After School Program, or come and help plant Grace Garden, we are glad to have you. If you just want to attend worship and by your presence, minister to all those gathered, we are grateful. While we have a particular call to ministry and mission in this place, we strive to be open to the individual call of each person who enters our door. We believe that everyone comes with a gift to share.
The Altar Guild is the liturgical partner of the Priest. As one Altar Guild manual puts it, "We are the ones chosen to prepare for the meeting of the people with God." (Working Manual for Altar Guilds, Dorothy Diggs)
