Local Hypothermia Shelter
Winter is upon us Grace Friends, and we have an incredible opportunity we want to let you know about. We are partnering with the Local Hypothermia Shelter run by a Ministry called “Hope for the Homeless.” This hypothermia shelter – the only one in the city – is at the old Marsteller building on Sudley Road.

Partnering with Ukraine
Grace has partnered with the ministry of St. John’s church in Lviv, Ukraine for many years and continues to support them through gifts, love, and prayer. These are pictures of Pastor Volodya and some church members. They have been working tirelessly since the war began to house, feed, and assist refugees in numerous ways as they pass through Lviv on the way out of the country.
Red Cross Blood Drive
Grace UMC continues to partner with the Red Cross to hold blood drives in our Fellowship Hall. This is a great way that we regularly serve our community. Here are a couple photos from the most recent blood drive.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Grace offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to those in our community seeking to develop and refine their English skills. Click here for class schedule information.
This ministry helps those who are transitioning from one life situation to another. The Grace Transition Ministry organized and planned a coat and blanket drive for those in need. The group also collected a van-load of books to donate.
Another local partner in mission is Labor Finders, a business in Manassas that helps hard-working people find temporary work in various fields.
Periodically, we offer a hot breakfast, toiletries, and clothing to the people who are at Labor Finders looking for work.
