Sunday Morning Missions Opportunities
Hands-on missions activities and lessons are offered each Sunday to all who would like to join this inter-generational opportunity for all abilities each week! Click the link below to see the list of weekly projects:
Serving at SERVE
One of the ways Mark and June Kohler engage with Grace through their service is by donating and serving pizza at the SERVE homeless shelter once a month. It started back in 2018 when Pastor Janet Salbert (now retired) challenged the congregation after her sermon “to get out of our comfort zone” and go out and help someone.
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. Click here for upcoming Blood Drives at Grace.
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 current class schedule information.
Would you like to volunteer with ESL? No prep is needed; this is a ‘show up and support the teacher’ role and you do not need to speak another language to volunteer in this ministry!
Contact Lynn at email@example.com for more info.
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.
The Grace Transition Ministry also supports 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.
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.
