End-of-the-year giving

Grace members give generously of their time, talent and financial resources to support the mission and ministry of our congregation. Approximately $500,000 is needed in offerings to meet our 2013-2014 ministry expenses by June 30.

Sacrificial gifts, of all kinds, from every member of Grace, will help us meet our budget and continue the work of bringing in, building up, and sending out disciples for Jesus Christ. Thank you!
