The Grace of Yesterday  

The church opened for services in August 1883, with Bishop John G. Granberry preaching the dedication sermon. Grace Church was called a “model of architectural beauty and symmetry” The original gray stones exterior of the church has not changed, although several additions the years have brought the church to its present design. The most recent of these provided a covered, accessible ramp and entrance area, accessible bathrooms, and an expanded, modernized kitchen. Steeple reinforcement and dormer replacement, roof repairs, and exterior painting are the mostly recently completed works.

 

From its earliest years, Grace Church has been anchor to the life of downtown Cambridge. It has reached out to the community in worship, study, fellowship,  witness, and service. Through it’s membership, Grace has been a voice in major economic, political, and educational decisions, given countless thousands of hours of volunteer service through community agencies and boards, and been an active participant in cooperative ministries with other Churches in the county.

Through radio broadcast of the Baraca Class weekly since 1946, and the worship service monthly, Grace Church has touched and inspired people with love of Christ in the surrounding region. Grace still stands at the corner of Race and Muir Streets, welcoming people to join in worship, study, and fellowship.
