Greetings, and thank you for taking time to find out about Sudanese Grace Episcopal Church!

We pray, celebrate, and share our individual challenges together in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are a community of faith, living in hope and serving with love.  If you are interested in the Christian faith, we invite you to join us in this journey.

We welcome everyone to in-person worship services on Sundays at 11:30 am, in our native language, Dinka.  On the first Sunday of every month, we worship in English.  Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, masks are required to be worn within the building, and coffee hour has been temporarily suspended.

Watch the service live at www.facebook.com/SudaneseGEC, or watch previous services on our YouTube channel at www.tinyurl.com/SudaneseGEC.

Sudanese Grace Episcopal Church is a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan, The Episcopal Church, and the worldwide Anglican Communion.



About Sudanese Grace

Sudanese Grace Episcopal Church is a community founded by “lost boys” — refugees from war-torn Sudan.  Our journey from the South Sudan included stops in refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya before making Grand Rapids our home and holding our first worship service in 2003. 

Over the past 17 years, our faithful congregation has worshiped in several locations across our city.  Due to the generosity of the former Wallin Congregational Church, we now claim a permanent home on Oswego Street. 


All are welcome to join us on Sunday at 11:30 am to worship in our native language, Dinka.  On the first Sunday of every month, we worship together in English.
