Parking Lot Party

This community event is held in our church parking lot every year in August as an opportunity to kick back and relax with good food, live music, games for all ages, and to celebrate as a community for the sake of celebrating. If Grace Church knows how to do anything other than give God thanks and praise – its throw a party! All are welcome to join in the fun!

All are welcome to join us Friday, October 4th, 2024 at 6pm for a special service on the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi. On this day we offer a special service for those special animals in our lives with our Pet Blessing followed by a reception with drinks, food, and treats for humans and animals alike. Any freewill offerings received during this service are designated for the Carthage Humane Society.

Trunk r Treat and Boo-fet of Terror

Every year just before All Hallows Eve, otherwise known as Halloween, we invite everyone to wear their costume, if they wish, to church and partake in a special liturgy that includes a costume blessing! After worship we have our annual Boo-fet of Terror (Halloween inspired buffet of food) for all who wish to join and we end the evening with our Trunk-r-Treat in our parking lot. All are welcome to come and join in the fun and any who wish to decorate a trunk and pass out candy are invited to do so! This year we will have our Costume Blessing and Trunk-r-Treat on Wednesday, October 30th!

St. Nicholas Party

In December we host our annual St. Nicholas Party for Youth and invite everyone to come and celebrate some Christmas joy and hear the story of old Saint Nick from St. Nicholas himself! Youth engage in activities, hear a Christmas story or two, play games, and enjoy some well earned sweet treats! This December keeps your calendar open on the night of December 11th, 2024 because you wont want to miss this night!

Olde World Market

On the first Friday and Saturday of every December, Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th in 2024, Grace Church hosts the Olde World Market to raise funds to support our ministry in Haiti. Area vendors are invited to sell their beautifully crafted wares with a portion of their proceeds benefiting our ministry efforts in Haiti. All proceeds directly serve the needs of this important ministry. This has been a long-established event in the life of Grace Church and has made a tremendous impact on the lives of those it is intended to help the most. If you are interested in learning more about being a vendor or learning more information about this important ministry, please reach out to the church office.
