You are fluent in social media, content management systems, email marketing, and other digital tools that build successful marketing campaigns.

You are ready for something new and you have found it!
Meet Grace Chapel
Grace Chapel is a non-denominational, multicultural church that welcomes everyone, no matter what your faith background or where you are on your spiritual journey. Our mission is simple ? discovering life with God for the good of the world. We are fully committed and passionate about helping people find and follow Jesus.
We?ve been around for quite a while ? since 1948 in fact, when four families in Lexington, Massachusetts met weekly in a home for a time of worship, Bible study, and prayer. These families had a heart and vision for reaching and serving people in the growing western suburbs of Boston. Since we incorporated in 1956, we?ve grown from a few dozen people in a rented space in Lexington to 4,000 people coming together for Sunday services and midweek programs across five campuses: Lexington, Wilmington, Watertown, East Lexington, and Foxboro. Our worship services are casual, contemporary, and upbeat and we offer great Sunday morning programs for kids and teens at all our locations.
