The first gift of Grace Church
"A gift from the entire congregation, this silver cup was made by smelting down many small baby cups, piece of jewelry, and some silver plate, which were then molded into a cup. A jeweled ring, the engagement ring of Mrs. Carey McNelly, wife of Captain McNelly, a Texas Ranger, adorns the top of the stem. The jewels around the bottom of the cup and stem were at one time pieces worn by members of the parish." This beautiful chalice has been used for every communion service in the church since.
