Outreach

Outreach is very important to Grace Church. Students are always encouraged to take part in church-wide or family-oriented outreach operations, and are also given opportunities to serve within the context of Grace Students.

  •  SOAR R&R Nights—One of the specific ways in which Grace Students partake in outreach is by hanging out with and taking care of the siblings of SOAR special needs individuals during R&R Nights.
  • Freedom Fire—Grace Students serve as missionaries in our own city! Simply show up and hang out with 80-100 urban kids, make crafts together, play ball, serve a meal, clean-up, and show the love of Jesus!
