Fellowship and Fun
Grace has an active and varied schedule of activities and groups, including:
St. Christopher’s Guild – comprised of all the women of Grace Church, the guild organizes fund-raising luncheons, auctions and wine-tasting events as well as receptions on special occasions such as Christmas Eve, Easter and memorial services. They meet between services on the last Sunday of every month.
The Men’s Group explores the spiritual aspects of togetherness, with breakfasts,barbeques, golf, pool and bocce tournaments, cruising on the USS Potomac, a butterfly walk along the Martinez waterfront and more.
Grace Youth Group – available to all middle school and high school youth, this group meets monthly for activities such as trips to the Maker Faire, movie nights, game nights, pizza and conversation nights, and participates in diocesan youth events like Nightwatch at the Cathedral.
The church has a variety of family-friendly events including “Rally Day,” a carnival in early September; an “All Hollow’s Eve” party that brings out the ghosties and ghoulies for games, creepy treats, and a haunted house, special Christmas activities; and an Easter Egg Hunt. The last big day of the Sunday School Year is “Recognition Sunday”, with certificates, small gifts and a barbecue offered by the adults of the church in recognition of the children’s participation and growth through the year.
Other all-parish events include seasonal dinners, game nights, tournaments and other fun activities.
