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 last 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.

Directions to Gifts of Dirt Garden from Grace Church
Please be respectful of neighbors and DO NOT use your GPS! That will take you through their private property
Turn left on to Day Road and then at the light turn left/south on 305.
Turn right onto Sportsmans Club Road, then make an immediate right onto Wardwell.
Follow Wardwell to the left, then go about 1/4 mile until you come to a three way fork in the road: Wardwell continues to the right, McRedmond continues straight ahead, and Bucsit is a gravel road on the left. Take Bucsit for about 1/8 mile until you see Belle Hill Road to your right. Go up the hill of Belle Hill Rd until the drive again splits into three
The address you should see is 8595 NE Belle Hill Road. Stay to the left of these three “driveways” and follow the small winding dirt road to the garden, where you will see other cars parked.

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.
