Grace Commons is a welcoming community which seeks to grow in spirit, mind, and heart. Our community is centered in a generous and dynamic Christianity.

Not everyone who participates in Grace Commons events is a Christian, or considers themselves a follower of Jesus, and that's okay with us.

At the same time, our community is centered in spiritual practices rooted in Christian tradition and following the teachings of Jesus. Read about individuals' journeys in the Community Life section.

We engage the dynamic nature of Christian tradition--which is a way of life rooted in grace and hope.

Please feel welcome to participate in which ever events feel most comfortable and which resonate most deeply with you.
