GRATITUDE … PRAYER … ACTION

At Grace Church we start by giving thanks for the abundant blessings God gives us: our lives, our loved ones, our ability to serve. As a community of faith, we strive to live out God’s call to us, to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God.

We welcome your support in mission and ministry. Join us, by giving of your time, your talents, your treasure — financial and gifts-in-kind. Grace Church accepts cash, checks, and online donations through secure transactions with Pay Pal.

Your donation supports the work of Grace Church in many ways. Let the Grace Church treasurer know if you want your donation to help support one or more of these ministries:

FOOD PANTRY

We are open weekly, and serve over 1000 families during the year. Cash donations enable us to purchase staples at the Food Bank of Central New York. We are always in need of nonperishable food items, tuna fish, grits, ethnic foods, toiletries/personal care items. Bring them to church on Sundays, or contact the church office if you have donations. Want to know more about serving on the food pantry team? Let us know!

WEDNESDAY NIGHT SUPPER

This weekly community gathering serves our neighbors, especially from the McCarthy Manor senior apartments across Madison Street. All are welcome – to eat, to volunteer, to cook, to serve. Donations support the cost of the food and kitchen maintenance. Want to lend a hand? Join us on a Wednesday night, or contact the church office.

THE GRACE PROJECT

Members of Grace Church visit and support incarcerated youth in Onondaga County. Books are always needed for these young people to read, with books geared towards male teenagers in short supply. In response to their request we are looking for donations of age appropriate books, new or used. A tax deduction form can be made available upon request. Your donation will be appreciated! For more information, contact the Grace Church office.

GRACE CHURCH IS MORE THAN A BUILDING … BUT THE BUILDING ALSO NEEDS SUPPORT!

This beautiful 1876 building and the 1916 Parish House are the launch pad from which the mission and ministry of Grace Church go out into the community. There are several ways you can help ensure this vital outpost of love and service will thrive for another 150 years.

MAKE AN ANNUAL PLEDGE:

Annual Giving forms the heart and soul of church support, and indeed members of the congregation give their heart to this place. Our annual budget forms the bedrock of mission.

The Grace Church treasurer will be happy to send you a pledge card. Here’s more information about pledging at Grace.

GIVE TO THE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN AND THE TOWER AND PARISH HALL RESTORATION FUND

Being good stewards of all God has given us includes caring for and maintaining our historical buildings. If you would like to make a donation to Grace Church that will last for generations, consider a gift to the Capital Campaign, or specifically to the Tower and Parish Hall Restoration. Progress has already been made with permanent repairs and improvements to the exterior and foundation of the building. A matching grant from New York State enabled the restoration of the church tower.

Checks for the Capital Campaign or the Tower and Parish Hall Restoration Fund can be sent to Grace Grace Episcopal Church 819 Madison Street, Syracuse, NY 13210.
