 WELCOME TO GRACE

 

  

We want you to feel at home at Grace. Here we pray together, learn, laugh and sing together. We want you to know God’s love and purpose. Take the first step and plan a visit. Dress comfortably! We have 2 services that offer something for everyone. Childcare as well as children’s ministry is provided at the 10:30am service, but we welcome children at all services! The Holy Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday. Our Sunday worship services consist of Rite I at 8am and Rite II at 10:30am.
 
 
We are located in the heart of Orange Park, Florida. Our address is 245 Kingsley Ave. Orange Park, Fl 32073. The beautiful chapel is for the 8:00am service and the 10:30 service is in the larger Sanctuary across the street. 
 

FIRST TIME GUESTS 

New to Grace?

Sunday Services:  8:00 am in the Chapel and 10:30am in the Main Sanctuary where childcare is provided. 
 
Upon your arrival you will see signs indicating Guest Parking. This is for you! As you enter the Sanctuary, look for our “Welcome” table or ask a friendly face at the door. We will show you around and help with checking in to nursery care if needed. We hope you hear an inspiring sermon that will leave you challenged, and fellowship so that you can  begin your journey with the support and love that Grace’s Church family gives. After the service, stay to meet our Rector and enjoy refreshments so you can get to know us and we can answer any questions. Grace Episcopal hopes to see you soon!

Where Can I Serve? Talent and treasure go far here! Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the community and the world around us. It begins in our own community. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.
 
Grace Episcopal Day School A ministry of Grace Church, this beautiful school serves PK3-8th Grade just down the street. Grace Episcopal Day School is a Christian based, family-oriented educational community dedicated to maximizing each student’s potential. Click on the website link or call admissions at (904)269-3718.
 
.
 
Youth Ministry Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own lesson shortly after Church begins. Children grades K-5 are instructed to follow the teacher for a loving lesson that correlates to the current readings for that Sunday. Anchor Club is very popular!  Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. 
 
Sunday Evenings we have our 6-12th graders at our youth house from 5-7pm. We Love our Youth! Email todd@graceop.net for more information. 
 
Music & Drama God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. We welcome any and all! If you wish to sing, just arrive at 9:30am that Sunday morning and our Choir Leader will have you singing faster than you can say fa-la-la.
 
Pastoral Care Team Grace Episcopal provides Pastoral Care for anyone who is sick, shut in, having a problem, having surgery, needing some kind of help, including meals, etc. This ministry also includes Communion for those at home or in nursing homes. There is a Facebook page for those interested in Pastoral Care. To join, click here for Grace Episcopal Connects.Pastoral Care Facebook
Hospitality Team Good in a kitchen? Not a requirement! Sign up to bring light refreshments for coffee hour after the service OR volunteer to set up for hospitality. This service is appreciated by all and is a great way to meet new members and experience fellowship. Sign up sheets are in the Narthex (Fancy word for Lobby).
 
Altar Guild is a fantastic way to get to know more about the Church, the different seasons and why we do what we do! It’s made up of teams so it’s an easy rotation and takes little time. This ministry might appeal to those wishing to help but not wanting a speaking role:). Contact Liz Reiswig via the Church Office.
 
Blessing Box  “Take what you need, Give what you can” is the philosophy of the Blessing box.  We have a lovely red box in front of the Church where non perishable donations are placed for others to help themselves.  These items serve a need in our community and give the hungry food.  Donations may be dropped off to the Church office and there is a marked area in Benedict Hall as well.
 
Prayer Shawl Ministry  These ladies lovingly knit beautiful prayer shawls and lap blankets for those who are sick or in need of comfort. They make shawls for Wounded Warriors that are blessed and given to Camp Weed’s retreat.
 
Grace MOPS of Orange Park Our Mother of Preschoolers program is a true example of how we can help others in the best of ways. Be a mentor to other moms, help with childcare, donate items! This program meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at Grace.
 
Beekeeping at Grace: This new ministry is a wonderful way to learn about Beekeeping. Truly God’s creatures! Contact Bill Spencer via the Church Office. 
 
Laundry Love The last Wednesday of every month at 5:30pm, Grace provides free laundry to the residents of Orange Park at Bellair Coin Laundry. Feel free to contact our coordinator, Larry Kronbach via the Church Office if you want to volunteer with this exciting outreach! This ministry has changed peoples lives

How Do I Meet People? Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.

 

 

Baptism If you are new parents, Grace welcomes you and we love a Baptism! Give us a call to find out more. It’s a wonderful way to introduce your child to Christ and be part of a growing Church. Adults welcome for Baptism too. 

 
Youth Ministry  Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. And a whole lot more decisions. The youth ministry of our church led by Todd And Michelle Cambron provides a welcoming atmosphere for 6-12th Graders on Sundays from 5-7pm. todd@graceop.net
 
 
 
 
 
Choir This is a great group of men and women who know the secret of receiving and giving joy through singing and music. So many ways to contribute and we value your time. Come when you can and no weeknight practices! Music director Susan Conroy will welcome you with open arms.
 
 
Men’s Grill and Chill The 1st Tuesday of the month at 6pm, the men gather at Benedict Hall. Just bring your favorite beverage and something to grill. A great way to relax during the week!  Sides provided.
 
 
Flower Guild This is an opportunity to work  with a team of people as creative as yourself! No professionals, just fun people who do our altar arrangements. An expression of faith at its finest.
 
 
Grace Ladies: We currently meet for lunch (2nd Friday) and dinner monthly. Please join our facebook page for new dates!
