Outreach/Faith in Action
The Outreach Ministry at Grace aspires to connect the people of Grace with the greater community by putting our faith into action and serving the needs of others — locally and around the world.
We strive to build meaningful and sustainable relationships working with ministry partners to feed, clothe, provide shelter, welcome immigrants, care for those in prison, and support families.

Service Sundays at Grace
In working toward the goal of achieving a hands-on and being-with relationship with our Ministry Partners and organizations in the community and beyond, we dedicate the fourth Sunday of each month after the 9:30 service to focus on one Ministry and provide assistance with donated items gathered and packaged by our parishioners. Notification of the Ministry selected and requests for donations each month are highlighted in the weekly online eNews and Sunday bulletin.
Butterfly Gifts are one-time financial donations given to an organization or ministry. A Request Form is submitted to Outreach and after approval by the Outreach ministers and Rector funds are deducted from the Outreach budget and forwarded.
