What to Expect

Grace Episcopal Church is an inclusive church. All are welcome!  When you come to a Sunday service at Grace, you can expect a warm welcome from the ushers who will give you a bulletin containing announcements and the scripture readings for the day.  The liturgy program is displayed on two screens at the front.  

Sunday services are always services of Holy Communion.  We use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) for most of our services, as a symbol of our unity and connection with other Episcopal and Anglican churches.  In this way, we feel at home in any Episcopal church anywhere in the country. 

The BCP contains two "rites." Rite I is the older of the two and uses the language of "thee" and "thou." Our Rite I service is at 8:00 a.m. and is a "said" service, meaning there is no singing.

Rite II uses more contemporary language and has a variety of forms for the Eucharistic Prayer and the Prayers of the People. The Rite II service is at 10:00 a.m. and is a "sung" service, meaning we sing parts of the liturgy and have music and hymns at this service. 

We have no specific "dress code" for worship - come as you are!
