Where there's love, music, kindness and community, there is Grace


Grace is a diverse community of faith. People of many different races, cultures, backgrounds, and identities call our community home. At Grace, everyone is welcome! Our clergy and staff welcome and affirm people from the 2SLGBTQ+ community and as a church we work to remove barriers to entry for marginalized people.
