Bible Questions, our lunch-hour discussion where no questions are off limits. Join us on Wednesdays at 12:05pm
Sunday School during the 10am worship service for all elementary grades.
Youth Confirmation for middle and high school youth who prepare to make a mature faith commitment at the end of the school year. They meet on the second and fourth Sundays of each month from 5-7pm (dinner included).
Adult Classes are offered periodically, especially in December (Advent) and the early Spring (Lent). In the late Spring, new members may join a special class called Koinonia (the New Testament word for sharing) as they learn what it means to believe and belong in Grace Episcopal Church.
They host Third Friday Suppers each month. The meals are free, but donations are accepted. People from all over the Concord area bring their families for this fun and easy night out!
Every August, they sponsor the Pork Fest in Merrill Park in East Concord. With the support of the nearby Quality Cash Market, they together feed barbeque pork, hamburgers and hot dogs to over 300 people. Each year they raise over $1,000 for our Take-a-Tote program to the Mill Brook School.

Take-a-Tote is our major outreach initiative where volunteers donate, organize, pack and deliver bags of food every weekend for hungry children at the new Mill Brook School. (In the past we served the Dame School and Eastman School, now closed.)
We also serve at the Friendly Kitchen on the second Sunday of every other month.
We also support the CROP Walk, Children of Incarcerated Parents (ChIPS) and relief following the Haiti earthquake.
Our Readers lead worship each Sunday by reading passages from the Bible to the congregation. On Sunday, January 5 at 11am, we will have a session to practice the skills needed to read Scripture in public.
If you are a Reader, please plan to stay after our 10am worship service and participate.
If you are not a Reader, but would like to be one, just show up and you’ll be included in the training!
