In the fall of 2020, Grace Church Parishioners were asked to submit works of art, photos, video, or audio recordings showing what they had been doing for the last six months. There was a great response to this project, which displays how the creative spirit of our church community was at work during the lockdown. Visit the Showcase to view submitted photography, videos, art, stories, audio, photos of participants and their families and more.

Advent Wreath Kits – November 29th
Advent Wreath Kits – November 29th is the first Sunday in Advent. In normal times, we would be making Advent wreaths in Tuttle Hall.

If you would like to take home a kit, please contact the Rev. Thomas Szczerba and we will make sure to have one for your family. If you are not in NYC, please let us know and we can make arrangements to mail you a kit. A suggested donation of $10 is appreciated.
