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:


Grace Church is a partner of University United Methodist Church’s The Food Center @ 324  University Avenue. Donations to the food pantry may be made through Grace Church, or directly to University United Methodist Church. Contact Galyn Murphy-Stanley, University United Methodist Church Neighborhood Outreach & Food Center Coordinator, (315) 475-7277, or at


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.

Help Grace Church Maintain its Historic Place of Worship and Ministry!

The beautiful 1876 church and the 1916 Parish House have been an anchor of the university neighborhood for nearly 150 years. The buildings and grounds provide sacred inspiration, contain the memories of generations, and provide the space for friendship and service to the community. There are several ways you can help ensure this historic place continues as a vital outward symbol of the glory of God.


Annual giving is the core of support for Grace Church’s mission and upkeep of its property. The Grace Church treasurer will be happy to send you a pledge card. Here’s more information about pledging at Grace.


Being good stewards of all God has given us includes caring for and maintaining our historic buildings and grounds. Grace’s Capital Campaign, Grace 2020, fulfilled its three-year pledge period and accomplished one of three major goals: exterior masonry restoration, including major repairs to the church tower. Additional contributions are much needed to fund other improvements scoped in Grace 2020 as well as the many other ongoing property maintenance needs, including repointing, repairs to the Parish House concrete foundation exterior painting, enhancement of the church entrances, improvements to the Welsh Garden, and renovation of interior spaces for new ministries. 

Checks for the Capital Campaign Fund can mailed to the church at 819 Madison Street, Syracuse, NY 13210, or use the Paypal button at the top of the page to make an online donation (note Capital Campaign Fund in the memo).
