~Welcome to Grace Episcopal Church~
Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you,
for the glory of God.
A DEEPER EXPERIENCE OF BELONGING
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 house 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."
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.
WELCOMING YOU HOME
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 Vicar, Reverend Steve Clifton, the Eucharist 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!
OUR CHURCH HISTORY
Grace Episcopal Church was founded in 1900, and we are a mission of the Diocese of Georgia. In 1963, Grace Episcopal merged with the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) in Sandersville, Georgia, and we were the first Episcopal Church in Georgia to integrate.
Please help us to continue meaningfully in this tradition of togetherness!
Inquirer's Forum -- a short course designed to present the basics of the Christian faith and life as Episcopalians practice them -- is coming! 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 when Bishop Frank Logue visits. More details coming soon!
"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
