Grace Community Church
Grace is committed to serving our body and local community. We are providing a variety of resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are mobilizing our Care & Mercy team to walk alongside those who are in need of assistance. We are also inviting those who are able and willing, to join in our efforts of providing care, hope, and love.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 240.553.1090 during normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30A – 4:30P) if you cannot access the forms below.
We have a variety of serving opportunities. Please see below to see upcoming serving opportunities, particularly in providing food and essentials to those in our community. If you’d like to get involved with the Care & Mercy team, you can email email@example.com.
We have a fund called COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND that is dedicated to meeting the needs of our body and community that arise from the COVID0-19 pandemic. We recognize that the effects of this pandemic will be felt much longer and wider than the actual pandemic itself. 100% of your donations to the fund will be redirected back out to those in our body and community.
