Grace Episcopal Church
Grace Episcopal Church proclaims & celebrates the word & sacrament that God in Christ embraces the world.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
(I Corinthians 1:30)

This is the greeting with which the Apostle Paul begins his letters to the early Church.  We extend that same gracious greeting to you.  We are named for the grace of God that is embracing the world in our Lord Jesus Christ and we have been extending that gracious invitation of the good news of God here in Anderson since 1851.

You are indeed welcomed by God and by God’s people of Grace Church.

Our mission is to proclaim and celebrate the word and sacrament that God in Christ embraces the world.  We hope and pray that our mission will bless you with that word and sacrament of being embraced by God and that you in turn will be that embrace for others, indeed for the world.

Grace for the world!

SAVE THE DATES:

Garage Sale for the Cancer Association of Anderson: Saturday, August 16
The Grace Episcopal Church Outreach Committee is having the Second Annual Garage Sale to benefit the Cancer Association of Anderson (CAA) on Saturday, August 16, 2014 in the Parish Hall, from 8:00 am until Noon. Grace Church is located at 711 South McDuffie Street, Anderson.

The CAA recently lost funding from the Susan B. Komen foundation, which makes up about $45,000 of their annual revenue.

The CAA provides cancer patients in Anderson County with assistance during their treatments, by providing help with many services including the cost of medications, counseling, durable medical equipment, gasoline and emotional support. This is possible through private donations, and fund-raisers.

Please bring donations of gently used items, to the Parish Hall any time after August 6, 2014. Please no adult clothes, or husbands!

To kick off the sale, the Grace Church Outreach Committee will host the First Annual Wednesday night "Shop and Dine with Wine" event. For a donation of $6.00, enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and the opportunity to purchase priceless artifacts, at only double the retail price. It is your only chance to shop the sale before anyone else does!
