Sermons

This is a list of sermons given at Grace Congregational Church at Sunday Services, Holidays and other services. Most of these sermons are by our Interim Minister, the Rev. Alberta Wallace. As we occasionally have guest preachers or Grace members speaking, in those cases, their names will appear next to the sermon title.

Each PDF document contains the sermon text, followed by the Scripture readings for that Sunday’s Service.
