Grace supports numerous missions and outreach programs through education, prayer, financial contributions, and hands on work.
Grace participates in the United Church of Christ’s special mission offerings: One Great Hour of Sharing, Neighbors in Need, Strengthen the Church, and the Christmas Fund, along with monthly contributions to our church’s wider mission.
Grace collects donations of food and personal care items for the H.O.P.E. food pantry. Each week these are distributed by individuals from Grace who work at the pantry to the area’s needy.
In May, Grace turns its attention to families with school age children. Children who qualify for free or reduced lunch during the school year miss as many as 10 meals a week during summer break. Contributions of food and other items help ease the burden of hunger and make the summer more enjoyable for these families.
Our First Step Back Home program puts displaced people into a hotel room for a short period of time. Having a physical address for job searches helps these families build better lives. During their stay, they receive one hot meal a day which Grace serves on the third Sunday of each month.
