Grace Children’s Church is offered during both worship services. Children ages 3-8 are invited to join us for games, crafts, and Bible time.

Service Opportunities

Give to Maui Relief
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) responds worldwide whenever and wherever suffering occurs through tragedies like hurricanes, famine, floods, war, fire and other events. UMCOR staff and volunteers are often the first boots on the ground and the last boots to leave a place that has experienced tragedy like the recent wildfires in Hawaii on the island of Maui. To financially assist the relief effort, write a check to Grace UMC, and write “Maui Relief” in the memo line. Our church’s apportionments help pay for UMCOR’s overhead costs so that 100% of your contribution goes to the relief that’s desperately needed in Maui right now.

Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard needs your donations.
Often the summer months are the highest need with the lowest donation levels. Donation of food items from individuals, religious and service organizations are greatly appreciated. Please consider giving non-perishable items, a few examples of which are printed below. The shopping cart for donations is located in the Welcome Center near the elevator.
