The Rev. Suzanne Smith, Priest in Charge

Aubrey Smith, Children's Minister

Welcome!  I am Aubrey Smith, the children's minister for Grace Episcopal church. My husband Michael and I have been married for five years, and we have a beautiful daughter named Helen who was born on Christmas day and just turned three!  

I came to Grace on the first Sunday in Advent in 2006 and immediately fell in love.  I found God again in this church and with this family during a time when God seemed so distant to me.  I became an adult volunteer with the youth program a few years later, eventually becoming the interim youth minister in the fall of 2014.  My husband and I were married that December in this very church!  I was called to serve the youth at another church for a few years before God called me back home this summer. In my opinion, there is no greater work than investing in our children, and I am honored to serve the children of Grace again.
