We want to send encouragement cards, blessing boxes, and prayer for our families who are serving. This will be an ongoing event the Love God, Love People Outreach Group will take care of.

GLASSES DONATION

We're partnering with the Lion's Club to give the gift of sight to those who need eyeglasses in our community. Bring in the old glasses you don't wear anymore and they'll be refurbished for someone in need! Turn them into the Grace Church Office any time!

The Lion's club holds a vision screening for those in the community who are unable to afford to go to the doctor and then refurbishes the donated glasses for those who are seen at the screening. They serve 150-300 people per screening!
