A couple weeks ago, I told you I had found a church. Today I'd like to take you on a mini tour of the building and grounds. There are so many more pictures I could have taken, this is just a small sample of the beauty that surrounds me every Sunday.
This is the altar area, it was the middle of the week so the elements were not there, nor the flowers. But still I think the beauty of the church can still be seen. If you click on the pictures, you can see the carved angels that are mounted where the pipes are hidden for the organ, and Pastor peaking from the side. The stained glass windows around the church are magnificent! The corner stone was laid in 1895.
This is the lectern, there are several awesome carvings throughout the sanctuary.

Children at Grace are very well behaved. This is due in part to the children's chapel, where proper church behavior, and respect are taught. This is the window over the alter.

What a beautiful place for Sunday School children to learn.

Alongside the building, is a piece of Heaven in the middle of the city. The wrought iron fencing encloses beautiful gardens and statuary, and benches for those who want to sit and just soak in the beauty of the surroundings. People from the neighborhood are most welcome to come into the garden and enjoy the peace it offers.

This is my favorite spot, the statue of St. Francis of Assisi. As an animal lover, I'm sure you know why. As the gardens come into bloom, I'll show more of the beauty that is Grace.

This is such a pretty church and gardens. I love St. Francis of Assissi, too. I think that statue is probably bigger than mine. Diane

What a beautiful church! I love the stained glass and the writing over the altar. I so prefer an old ornate church to the new modern ones of today.

What a great church inside and out. Beautiful stained glass windows, and isn't it lovely that you can find a place to just soak up the sun and look at the flowers and listen to the birds. I'm so happy you have found this home.
