~Welcome to Grace Episcopal Church~ 


Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you,

for the glory of God.

-Romans 15:7 

Our Mission

Grace Episcopal Church is an inclusive church committed to Christ and His love. We are dedicated to sharing the love of Christ through ministry, fellowship and worship. Our church is not just a place of worship, because at its core are the members and believers who come together to practice God’s teachings, celebrate Him, and extend His gifts to all.

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Isaiah 41:10

Our Vision

Since 1900, we have worked to create a strong community driven by the example of Jesus Christ, the Guiding Light in the lives of our growing congregation. Through our worship, activities and extended community, we give our members the opportunity to become fully immersed in the wisdom and teachings of the Lord.


From our humble beginnings, we have worked to respect, represent and care for our community in all its diversity, with a strong commitment to equality and peace as based upon the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.


Our typical services and gatherings include prayer, hymns, messages delivered by our Priest-in-Charge, Father Steve Clifton, the Eucharist (Holy Communion),  and community outreach. Please know there is always room for more members in our church family. We shall strive to be there for you in both good times and challenging times as well.

Please feel free to make Grace Episcopal Church your spiritual home. Our doors are open to all! We welcome fresh, new perspectives and we look forward to your participation!


Grace Episcopal Church was founded in 1900 as a mission of the Diocese of Georgia. In the 1960s, Grace Church was one of the only places that Black and White community leaders could come together to lay the groundwork for racial integration, and was the first mainstream church in Washington County to welcome all races as members to worship, learn, and serve together.

Please help us to continue meaningfully in this tradition of togetherness!

Inquirer's Forum -- Held from time to time as needed, the Forum is a short course designed to present the basics of the Christian faith and life as Episcopalians practice them. All are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend, but attendance is required for those who desire to receive Confirmation or to be received into the Episcopal Church during a visitation by our Bishop (currently the Right Rev'd Frank Logue). If you would like more details, please contact us!


"You've Gotta Serve Somebody," as Bob Dylan wrote during his exploration of the true essence of Christianity.

As Jesus of Nazareth said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." - Acts 20:35 

Share your unique gifts with the world. Explore just some of the ways you can bring more joy of giving into your life.

Speaking of service, every year we acknowledge all the animals that stand by us! Patient, kind, and loyal, our animal friends bring us

great joy.
