"Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ-the Message-have run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God!  Let every detail in your lives-words, actions, whatever-be done in the name of Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way."  (Col 3 msg)  


Visitors Information

Whoever you are, wherever you find yourself in your journey of faith, you are welcome at Grace Episcopal Church.

Our philosophy is simple: Everyone is joyously welcomed. The people of Grace come from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles. We welcome diversity in our parish as every person is wondrously created in the image of God.

We understand that walking into a church for the first time can be overwhelming, so we seek to create worship that is accessible to everyone, whether a person has never been to church, has worshipped with another denomination, or is newly arrived in the community.

Everything you need to follow the service is printed in the bulletin which you will receive at the door. There are no reserved seats.

Each Sunday, greeters and members of our newcomers committee are available to answer your questions. Our rectors and church staff are here to help you in any way. There are cards in each pew that make it easy to leave contact information, and cards with information about the church; please take a set of these as well. If you tell us you would like more information, you will be contacted by Bruce, our Rector, as well as from a member of our newcomers committee.

Joining us is straightforward. Come to church and let us know you wish to be a member.
If you have any questions about Grace Episcopal or would like to explore ways to serve, please call Bruce at 828-437-1133 or e-mail  Please know you are in our prayers as you journey in faith and that you are a blessed and precious child of God.
