Grace: It's Our Way of Life

As Episcopal Christians we
Worship at home daily and together weekly;
Study the Scriptures, our tradition, and what it means to be a disciple today;
Serve our families, our parish, and our world in the name of Christ.

Everything we do is done with an ethic of Welcome
because we are only here by Grace.

Liturgy and Worship from A New Zealand Book of Common Prayer - Fourth Sunday of Easter - 25 April 2015

As part of its 2015 series on Global Liturgies, the 500 pm Saturday worship community at Grace Episcopal Church of Traverse City, Michigan celebrates and worships a liturgy from the New Zealand Book of Common Prayer this Saturday.

A Community of Hope

For over 150 years people who have belonged to this church have been united together in expressing the grace and love of God to those around them.

All Saints exists to bring hope to people in this area through Jesus.

They serve the community with many outreach ministries and worship on Sundays at 9:00 am and 10:30 am (local).
