Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church celebrates God’s unbounded grace and all-inclusive love. God gathers us in a welcoming community, with our curiosity and questions, to worship creatively, learn from God’s word, share our gifts, and deepen our faith. With grateful hearts and a spirit of adventure, we go to serve Christ in the world, sharing kindness with everyone, and working for justice rooted in God’s love.
The Reverend Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) calls us to do the work of reconciliation and redemption in our communities and in our city. At Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church we are committed to sharing God's all-inclusive love and standing with those who are victims of injustice. We invite you to join us in the work that needs to be done to join the call to remember the victims of racial violence and affirm our commitment to work together to dismantle structural racism. We are a Matthew 25 congregation. Learn more here.
