Our annual giving theme, “All Hearts Open,” is based on the Collect for Purity, which begins “Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid …”

“All Hearts Open” is a call to action for each of us. It is a call to worship, learn, and serve together as we open ourselves to the Word of God. As you discern your contribution of time, talent, and financial resources for 2018, we ask that you first take time to consider:

How has your heart been opened to God?

How have you been uplifted and cared for by this body of Christ?

How has your heart been opened to others and to the needs of this community?

Our ministries at Grace open our hearts and help us do God’s work in impactful ways. Here are just a few highlights from this past year. Together, we…

  • Delivered 380 meals to middle school students through the Brown Bag Lunch program;
  • Donated over 184 lbs. of non-perishable food and 51 lbs. of fresh produce to the Food Pantry;
  • Established a weekly bible study and book discussion groups;
  • Welcomed 5 confirmands to our church family;
  • Hired our first Parish Administrator;
  • Built new, more accessible walkways to the sanctuary and Celebration Garden.

We can’t do any of this without you!  We now encourage you to consider how God has been a guiding presence in your life and respond by earnestly supporting the 2018 stewardship campaign at Grace Church.
