The strengths of Grace Church are a very solid, long term, committed membership, which is bright, intellectually curious and giving. A solid financial situation including generous parishioners and a modest endowment. A fantastic location and community near New York City, with great schools, culture and activities. A beautiful, well maintained church building, parish hall and rectory at the cross roads of the village. A history and focus on positive activism and participation in local, state and national causes consistent with the Episcopal life.
As is the case with many churches of all denominations our biggest challenge is to stay relevant in today’s changing society. Attracting new younger members, families and being visible to those have moved to our village is important to the long term vibrancy of the parish. Staying financially solvent, while maintaining our programs is always on our minds. Running the day to day operations and church life of the parish is always a challenge, but one that the rector, vestry and parishioners have always enjoyed and solved.
