Grace is very active in missions on a local, regional, national, and international scale. Opportunities abound to take part in our goal of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. Our Missions Team is divided into four areas of emphasis: Local Missions, State Missions, National Missions, and International Missions. Each area focuses on one primary mission point to serve and support.
The Missions Team coordinates with core groups and our Missions Emphasis programs to create and take advantage of opportunities to serve & share.
Our primary emphasis for local missions is the Grace Place Clothes Closet ministry of our church. Look for more information about Grace Place, click HERE.
