Local Outreach & Expansion
Light In The Darkness
Partnering with Dr. Carolyn Knight, we will provide funds for training materials, resources for assisting ladies in emergency situations in clubs, and funds to cover travel for ministry, speaking engagements and recruitment.
The planned community center will have a STEAM academy for kids, the Great Harvest Food Pantry, Indiana Diaper Source, a mental health ministry office, as well as many other opportunities to serve. We need funds to design the building, initial building costs, as well as funds to kick start each new ministry that will be part of the community center. We are also looking for grant writers to help us secure funds for these types of outreaches.
Indiana Women’s Prison Outreach
We will partner with the Friends International ministry team led by Roe Farris to provide items needed to minister to ladies at the Indiana State Prison for Women. These include Bibles, birthday party supplies and other ministry costs.
Serve Day Outreach Project
Our annual Serve Day outreach event consists of hundreds of Grace people serving a local school and other areas of need in our community. These “hands of Jesus” projects make an immediate and long-term impact on those in our community.
One Saturday per month a team from Grace will go to the community with “palms down” to serve nursing homes, senior centers, local schools and neighbors in need. Funds are needed for supplies and services provided.
Great Harvest Food Pantry
Last year our food pantry provided meals for 13,356 families representing 46,142 individuals. Every week we set a new record in the number of families served in our local community who are in a food crisis. We will continue to fund the expansion of this vital ministry in our community.
Indiana Diaper Source
IDS is an extension of Great Harvest Food Pantry. Every week women come to the Indiana Diaper Source for clothing items, formula, diapers, wipes and other items. We get to partner with God to provide miracles for families in need and hope for women and their children’s futures.
Each Friday night, people from the community come to Grace to get help with their hurts, habits and hang-ups. We provide a meal each week, worship and a small group experience. We will provide training, equipment and material needed to expand this effective outreach ministry.
Christmas Store Outreach
Our heart is to serve the underserved families in our community by providing a one-of-a-kind Christmas experience. This is an opportunity to meet local families' needs and share the love of Jesus Christ with them.
Our heart is to help those in need of a valid financial crisis. These funds help provide funeral expenses, emergency funds and other means of being there for people in crisis.
