Grace Church designates 10% of our annual income to outreach programs. Our vision is to fulfill human needs with a focus on Housing, Hunger, and Health. We support local, national, and international organizations and programs.
It is through our collective generosity that these programs continue to provide care and service throughout the world. Grace members volunteer their time and talents, dedicating themselves to making a difference in communities and programs making Grace a place that extends its boundaries worldwide: actively helping others.

On June 8, Outreach met to award grants from the applications received this year, (21). As in years past, the choice was not easy as there were many worthwhile requests. Rather than doing large grants to just a few applicants, Outreach chose to fund the fourteen groups listed below. The emphasis was on the "Four H's", health, housing, and hunger. We also looked for organizations that provided opportunities for members of Grace to volunteer. Thank you for making Outreach such a high priority. This is our faith in action here and abroad.
