A quiet, beautiful church where the red door is always open for you to step inside, rest your worries and refresh your soul. The members are varied in age and talents but united in a genuine desire to support one another, the community and those in need in the world.

What We Believe

We don’t make things up on the fly in Episcopal worship, but rely on tried-and-true actions and words which have stood the test of time.

How We Started

After the Civil War, a small group of local ladies began to gather weekly for prayers in their homes; within a year, they had organized a self-supporting parish and constructed a wooden church at our current location, without windows, doors or heat.

Grace Church is the oldest Episcopal parish in the four states area.

Rooted in worship of the Risen Christ, we draw our understanding of His commandment to love one another from Holy Scripture, reason and tradition—and we encourage our membership actively to seek a deeper personal relationship with Christ, a relationship founded in love of God and of neighbor.

Like Episcopalians around the world, members of Grace Church hold various opinions on all sorts of matters, from politics to scriptural interpretation. It is that lively interplay of God’s personal revelation to His Church which challenges us to deeper devotion and to a stronger life in unity, not uniformity.

I've enjoyed attending this church for the past two years. It's not what I'm used to but I love the people, the energy, and the emphasis on learning.
