Did you make a pledge in 2019? It’s not too late—every gift matters! Together, we continue to be an inclusive, spirited and Christ-centered urban church that transforms lives. You can complete a pledge form online at ghtc.org/participate-and-give/annual-pledge-campaign or through the Member Center (top right of the website).

Your IRA’s required minimum distribution is a great way to pay your pledge or make a gift to the church and subtract the full amount of the gift from your taxable income. Your plan administrator must send the funds directly to GHTC. Your tax advisor can explain the impact for you; Barb Dodd can answer general questions about this idea.
Walking in the Way of Love
Take a moment to stop into the Chapel of the Resurrection and reflect on The Way of Love. This chapel which connects Grace and Holy Trinity with the world on our doorstep has become a safe and welcoming space for people to rest and pray as they pass by. The newly decorated space features photographs and quotations from participants in Faith from the Margins to the Web and our Red Door Ministry who have been reflecting on the Way of Love in group bible studies with our priest affiliate, the Rev. Dr. Sarah Kye Price. More in depth reflections on each of the Way of Love stations are available online at Faith from the Margins .
