Grace Congregational Church was founded in 1964 and expanded in the 1980s. Our church is a small congregation, family-friendly and active in community service. Come to our 10:00 AM Sunday Worship and afterwards to our Fellowship/Coffee Hour. Meet others who found a family of faith at Grace Church. Learn more about our church and meet our Pastor, Rev. Dr. Karen Roy.
"People of a Congregational Church do not seek to be led by a creed, but by the Spirit. Ours is the tradition of a free church, gathered under the headship of Christ and bound to others by love, not law" as affirmed in The Congregational Way
We have a voluntary affiliation with the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches
