The Mission of Grace provides emergency financial assistance for rent, utilities, prescription medication and food. We also offer information and referrals to other appropriate resources in the community, and provide counseling and spiritual support to those in need. Although we seek first to assist families with children, the elderly, and the unemployed, we know each applicant is unique, in immediate need, and most of all a sister or brother in-Christ.
In 1978, the Pastor and members of a small, inner city church became aware of a crisis in the neighborhood surrounding its church. People in need were knocking on the church’s door to ask for assistance with the basic fundamentals of life, including food, clothing, and other essentials. The need was vast, and many times overwhelming.
Because of the need a new outreach ministry was developed. It is called the Mission of Grace. The church began by seeking the resources of individuals who volunteered their time, money and prayers. Soon an organization was created and the Mission of Grace began its work. Since that time the Mission of Grace has served over 200 clients each month.
The priority of the Mission is to walk in love, as Christ first loved us, by offering our neighbors assistance through their economic, social and emotional difficulties.
