Who We Are
Grace Church in Freeport, Illinois embraces a diverse and inclusive congregation. We are part of the world-wide Anglican Communion, in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago.
What We Believe
Like Christians around the world, we believe in Jesus Christ, as expressed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. We believe in the Holy Scriptures, understood by faith, reason and tradition.
How We Serve
Grace Church carries out the ministry of Jesus Christ through a range of committees, guilds, organizations and community service groups.
The Holy Eucharist
Our entire Sunday worship service at Grace Church is called The Holy Eucharist, which means “Thanksgiving” taken from the ancient Greek term.

Experience God’s Presence
Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORDall the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORDand to seek him in his temple.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
