Mission & Values

Grace Episcopal Church’s mission can be summarized by four values modeled by Jesus Christ:

Service: We believe that we receive Christ in the Eucharist, our spiritual food, so that we have the strength to work together in the world to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, comfort the lonely, and heal the sick. We believe this is how we show Jesus to others and he is shown to us.

Diversity: Woodlawn is a diverse neighborhood in a diverse city in a diverse country. Accordingly, the Grace parish family believes the Church should be a community filled with a mixture of faces, beliefs, and households.

Inclusiveness: In order to be a diverse family, Grace Church desires to have members of each and every gender, identity, orientation, income, and ethnicity. The only way the Church can function today as the Body of Christ is with such variety.

Welcoming: Every person and family is welcome to become part of Grace and will be completely and immediately embraced with Christ’s unconditional love. No exceptions.
