Parish Life

Parish Life is a key part of what makes Grace Episcopal special. Whether it is a summer picnic or a Shrove Tuesday pancake feast, we love to be together. We have a full service kitchen and indoor and outside areas in which to gather. Members of our Parish Life ministries also plan and facilitate fellowship activities through out the year. If you are interested in our fellowship activities, please see our calendar. If you feel called to help in this area of ministry, please call Chae at 437-1133 or e-mail

Episcopal Church Women (ECW) 

ECW is a national church organization for women whose primary goal is to unite the women of the Dioceses in a program of worship, study, service, and fellowship which will deepen and strengthen their own spiritual lives and lead them into service of the Church in the parish, community, dioceses, nation, and world. Grace's Chapter of ECW meets on the first Wednesday of each month. Meetings are not held between June and August.

Special Events 

Grace Episcopal Church is constantly alive with activity and fellowship. One never knows when a special event will pop up at Grace. Individuals or groups within the Church have organized events; such as, cannoning the New River with the church youth, biking the Virginia Creeper Trail, Diocesan trips, outings to museums, concerts, and the theater.  Essentially, there is always something to be involved with at Grace Episcopal.

  Hospitality is bountiful at Grace Episcopal Church. Two small ways in which new comers and parishioners partake of this friendly kindness are through our Greeter and Coffee Hour Ministries.


            The mission of the Greeters ministry is greeting all parishioners, visitors and positional new members of Grace Episcopal Church each and every Sunday Morning. We try our best to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable while at Grace Church. We greet before the Sunday morning service and again at the end of the service. Our greeter's teams are there to answer any questions visitors or potential new member might ask. We record potential new member's names so that we may introduce them to Father Walker and other parishioners.


Directly after the 10:30 service, in the parish hall is our "Coffee and Tea "Hour." This is a great time for fellowship with other members of Grace Episcopal Church while partaking in light refreshments.

Care Givers 

The Care Givers is an active ministry at Grace Episcopal Church. This group works hard to remember all the sick and elderly of our Church. Members of this group visit, comfort, bake cakes and cook meals, send cards, flowers, and gifts, take to lunch and generally make our aged and infirmed parishioners feel loved and remembered.
