2022 Annual Pledge Campaign

Grace Episcopal Church’s ministries, including our outreach throughout Greater New Bedford, exist because of the support and financial commitment of each parishioner. Through our collective generosity, we sustain and further the way of Jesus in New Bedford and surrounding communities. We hope you will reflect on the ways we serve God together at Grace and prayerfully consider making a pledge of financial support to our church for the coming year.

You can also read our answers to frequently asked questions.

This year during our pledging season Every Perfect Gift, we would like our parishioners to consider answering the following questions…

  • Why do I/we give financially to Grace Church for its ministries
  • How have I/we been impacted and…
  • How have I/we impacted the church and our neighbors with my/our financial gifts?

Your answer in 300 words or less will be used anonymously or with permission your name throughout our Pledge Season in our various publications to highlight why you contribute to Grace.  Your answers will hopefully encourage others to do the same.

You may use the online form (button above "Why You Contribute to grace...") to submit your answers, or email your response to: stewardship@gracechurchnb.org.

You can also mail your response to Grace Episcopal Church, Attention: Stewardship Committee, 133 School Street, New Bedford, MA 02740.  You may also drop it off at the church if that is more convenient.

We ask that you submit your written responses no later than Friday, October 8th.

Please contact Beth Sharp-McKay with any questions you may have.  She can be reached by cell phone at 508-742-7056 or by email- elizabethjsharp@gmail.com.

The Stewardship Committee looks forward to reviewing your thoughts to these important questions and sharing them with the congregation making our Every Perfect Gift pledge campaign a success.  Thank you.

Grace in Community Restoration Campaign

Grace Church has been nourishing generations of parishioners to serve the world in Jesus’ name, while also continuously reaching out to the larger community of which we are an integral part. Our church and parish house are the sacramental bricks and mortar of our shared ministry. They are outward and visible signs of God’s grace given to us and extended through us to others.

With hearts full of gratitude for what God continues to do through Grace for us and for Greater New Bedford, we continue to receive donations for our “Grace in Community” campaign to address crucial building needs due to aging and wear. The campaign allows us to complete necessary work on the structural renovation of the church so that we might continue and even expand our ministry and collaboration with our surrounding community.
