WE WELCOME YOU JUST THE WAY GOD MADE YOU

We would like to welcome you to The Episcopal Church in Grand County, three religious communities dedicated to God and rooted in the compassionate and hospitable traditions of The Episcopal Church. We honor the vast possibilities of human self-expression and the infinite variety of God’s creation. We celebrate diversity in gender, age, culture, ethnicity, sexuality, profession, language and other facets of human identity, and value the gifts that each individual brings to the whole. Mindful of God’s limitless grace and our salvation in Christ Jesus, we believe there are no outcasts from God’s table. We strive to embrace those who have been rejected elsewhere, as well as those who have not yet found a spiritual home, and to make our community an inclusive reflection of the diversity of God’s creation. We affirm our commitment to participating in God’s plan for the reconciliation of all humanity through Christ Jesus.

All Are welcome!
