Our Ministries

“Seek the welfare of the city…for in its peace you will find your own.” — Jeremiah 29.7

First Grace is the remnant left from aftermath of Katrina and a failed levee system. We have embraced this moment in our shared histories to see our selves as “new beings” called to witness to a new way of being in our city; of not just living next to each other but living with each other and for each other. The complexity of our life together is experienced in our urban style of worship, community involvement and the manner in which we use our church grounds and facility.
