This blended parish of two churches brings a strong commitment to working with their surrounding community. Offering ESL classes to adults and children is part of the glue that brought these congregations together. They network well with community groups such as the NAACP and ecumenical and deanery partners. Grace and Resurrection is made up of both African American and members form different Caribbean countries. The diversity is both honored and celebrated throughout the year. The church is committed to supporting youth both in the congregation and in the community.
The congregation is graying and while they honor their Caribbean roots they are seeking ways to move into a future that incorporates and celebrates those who are born in the USA and build a post-Caribbean identity parish.
