Our mission at Grace is to glorify God by KNOWING Christ, GROWING in Him, and GOING in His service. Short-term mission trips play a big role in accomplishing all three aspects of our mission. Teams are made up of believers growing in their faith who are now ready to go and share the gospel so that others might come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. These trips are life-changing and play a major role in helping believers see people as Jesus sees them.
*Ladies Only* Journey by van to Cleveland where you will support Norma Nulph and her work with inner-city people. Take toiletry bags (generously supplied by the church body) and all the fixings for a meal (chicken & noodles, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a cookie). The people at the clinic have access to donated clothing, and after listening to a sermon, they go through the food line for lunch. The team helps with kitchen clean-up before heading back to Troy. Look below to see how you can give!
