Even a child knows how valuable the forest is. The fresh, breathtaking smell of trees. Echoing birds flying above that dense magnitude. A stable climate, a sustainable diverse life and a source of culture. Yet, forests and other ecosystems hang in the balance, threatened to become croplands, pasture, and plantations.
At Grace, we are committed to a transformational kind of generosity. It is a generosity based on the knowledge that God’s abundant gifts touch every aspect of our lives.
Grace has always been known for its beauty, inspiring worship, commitment to social justice and strong outreach to the community. We are also called to invite more people into our parish life while expanding our service to the community.
Each of us is being asked to give joyfully and generously to support the mission and ministry of Grace Memorial Episcopal Church. Together, we can make a real difference in our community and beyond.
Annual pledges support our mission and ministry through daily operations, outreach, Christian Education programs, and other various ministries. All are welcome and encouraged to support Grace through an annual financial commitment or pledge.
Fill out the pledge form found in the back of the church (and in your mail) and place it in the offering plate or mail it to the church office at 1535 N.E. 17th Ave., Portland, OR 97232.
Stewardship In-Gathering is on November 19th at the 8am & 10am services.
Thank you for your ongoing faithfulness and generosity!
– The Rev. Martin Elfert, Rector at Grace Memorial Episcopal Church
