Ministries Within Our Congregational Family
Grace Endowment Fund
The Grace Endowment Fund provides scholarships to congregation members pursuing higher education. Since 2000, over forty-five scholarships have been awarded. The application process includes an essay describing the importance of the faith and the congregation in their lives. Recipients have gone on to serve in education, science, architecture, industry, foreign service, and other fields. Recipients have also gone to graduate school.
Donations are tax deductible, and contributions may be made to Grace Endowment Fund, Inc. and sent to the church or may be made online.
Grace Memorial Garden
Grace Memorial Garden, a columbarium on the grounds of our church, is a place for the internment of the cremated remains of loved ones, and for reverent reflection and meditation.
