The Outreach Ministry at Grace aspires to connect the people of Grace with the greater community by putting our faith into action and serving the needs of others — locally and around the world.
We strive to build meaningful and sustainable relationships working with ministry partners to feed, clothe, provide shelter, welcome immigrants, care for those in prison, and support families.
Service Sundays at Grace
In working toward the goal of achieving a hands-on and being-with relationship with our Ministry Partners and organizations in the community and beyond, we dedicate the fourth Sunday of each month after the 9:30 service to focus on one Ministry and provide assistance with donated items gathered and packaged by our parishioners. Notification of the Ministry selected and requests for donations each month are highlighted in the weekly online eNews and Sunday bulletin.

KIAC’s mission statement is: “Recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of all people, KIAC works for the well-being and empowerment of immigrants through education, advocacy, and social justice.”

Mom’s Morning Retreat is a community for Moms to connect, replenish, be seen, and heard in a space that is welcoming, diverse, and inclusive. We are a non-faith based community group supported by Grace Episcopal Church. Grace generously provides a space to gather and additional financial support for our program.
Each year from September to June, we meet every 1st and 3rd Thursday. We are lucky to have Jen Breen, founder and teacher at Bainbridge Yoga House as our mentor and facilitator for the second year. We will explore the theme of Wild Mothering with Jen through sharing stories, readings, group discussion, bodywork, poetry, and “wild writing”.
Onsite childcare is available at every meeting. Visit our childcare page to learn more.
