IN OUR COMMUNITY AND AROUND THE WORLD
Deuteronomy 14:29 says, “And the Levite, because he has no portion or inheritance with you, and the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, who are within your towns, shall come and eat and be filled, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands that you do.” Our ministry takes to heart the needs of the community, both locally and globally. Our ongoing relationships with local organizations has given us the opportunity to deliver over 300 meals at Thanksgiving, over 200 bags of school supplies to local foster kids, and outfitting them with shoes throughout the year. We have an ongoing partnership with a home for displaced children in Ensenada, Mexico that we have been able to support with groceries, safe drinking water and natural gas. We want to continue to bless and impact our local and global community- would you help us?

Pathway For Hope (PFH)
In 2018, Grace Church launched a new community development program that focuses on helping women and families extricate themselves from economic hardship, low education and a lack of opportunity. The program is called Pathway For Hope and seeks to provide a community in Manila, Philippines, with “holistic opportunities for people’s empowerment”. Goals for the program include growth and expansion, positive change and transformed lives. So far, Pathway has trained several women in sewing and business basics and provided life skills training.

We believe we are called to follow what scripture teaches us to do. In scripture, we see that God's people would leave large gatherings and go back to different homes with their family and Oikos to encourage and build each other up. We know that to be true today, and at Grace, we call those our CONNECT groups.
