Strengths

Grace Church, Silver Spring is a vibrant, multicultural parish, with strong clergy and lay leadership.  The children and youth program is particularly strong, and there are many children excited and active in family programming.  Grace Church is a leader in justice ministries, particularly enviornmental and racial justice.

Challenges

The parish is losing two members of its staff, one clergy member and one lay, in charge of children's Sunday programming.  They seek to reorganize staff responsibilities in order to accommodate these changes in key staff members.
