Everyone is Welcome.

At Grace, 10 percent of all offerings are dedicated to benevolences.  Those funds support ELCA benevolences and world hunger as well as many local local Christian charities selected by the Church's Board of Witness and Mission.  In addition to this basic benevolence commitment, Grace conducts special benevolence projects throughout the year including special appeals during Lent and Advent.  The most recent2024  special offering during Lent is dedicated to purchasing Hygiene Kits that are available through the ELCA Good Gifts Program. Each kit provides sanitation supplies and education for households, schools, clinics and other public spaces.  This is a very simple way to help conquer disease.
