Giving to Grace Chapel

Supporting our ministries

We serve over 4,000 people across five locations on Sunday mornings, and many more through midweek programs, from Celebrate Recovery to NextGen Ministries, to our ministry partners across the globe! These ministries are made possible because of the your generous giving, and we're grateful for it! God is good, and we're excited to see what He will do through Grace Chapel in Boston and beyond!

If you have any questions or would like more information about giving,  our Finance Department or call us at (781) 862-8351 x 162.
