Grace Church and over a dozen partner organizations seek to bring deeper spirituality and healing into our lives and the lives around us. In the broadest sense, virtually everything Grace Church and our partners do contributes to people’s spirituality and healing.

Spirituality is a journey we take in the hope that we will experience God’s presence in our lives more and more—to develop a closeness with the Divine. There are many spiritual practices, but only one destination—a closer relationship with our Creator.

Healing involves all of our relationships--with others and with creation. When we seek to be healed, we seek to mend what is broken in our lives. It starts with healing our broken relationship with God, proceeds to reconciling our relationships with others, and finally, we seek to become the whole person God created us to be by finding healing within ourselves.  Or perhaps it happens the other way around--as we are healed, so are our relationships.

It is impossible to separate spirituality from healing. Almost everything happening at Grace embodies both in varying proportions.

Partnerships are key to Spirituality and Healing at Grace. Through our partnerships, hundreds of people every week are helped on their spiritual journey and on their path to healing.

Here are the  Spirituality and Healing programs at Grace. See the calendar for dates, times and locations.
