Today's stone church was built around the wooden church, which now serves as the Sunday School.
Grace Episcopal Church is involved with the community in a variety of ways; parishioners volunteer at the Nyack Center, YMCA and Rotary Club. Through the Midnight Run program, parishioners donate and make food to deliver to the homeless throughout Westchester, Rockland and New York City. Residents interested in helping should visit the church on the second Saturday of each month at 10am.
