The Rev. Susan G. McCann+
"He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
"Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream."

A Note from Mother Susan:
Welcome to Grace Church!Grace Church is a warm, welcoming, inclusive community of faith. We are open-minded,fun-loving, justice-seeking, and relational. We are actively engaged in Christ's ministry of reconciliation as we seek to grow closer to God and to one another. Worshiping God in beautiful Episcopal liturgies and serving the world in Christ's holy name are foundational to this community of faith. Grace members have generous and caring spirits and reach out within the parish, in the surrounding communities, and throughout God's world in ways that are life-giving to both those who give and to those who receive. At Grace we are on a journey to become ever more fully the people whom God has created us to be. We seek, through prayer, study, and reflection to find ways to most authentically glorify God and to best love and serve God in one another and in the world around us. We offer radical hospitality to the stranger and infinite respect for all, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
I hope that you will join us on this exciting journey. Please worship with us this Sunday. If we can be helpful in any way please contact us. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Faithfully in Christ,
