Outreach Ministries

 

Outreach is perhaps the most important aspect of the Church. At Grace, we have several avenues of organized outreach ministries which serve as an example of Christ's love and hospitality in our community. If you are interested in serving on any of the groups mentioned below, please reach out to us and we will put you in contact with them.

"The Church is the only institution that exists primarily for the benefit of those who are not its members."
-William Temple, 98th Archbishop of Canterbury
