*Contracted retreats are public or private retreats hosted in partnership with A Place of Grace. These retreats may offer the same monthly theme or may be custom-designed for your group’s particular needs. They can be held in a home, a church, a community center, or a place of business, and the partnering host issues invitations to guests.

As Founder and Creative Executive Director of A Place of Grace, I am committed to supporting area ministries and agencies. One of the ways I believe that gets accomplished is by showing up to be the hands and feet and heart of Christ at work in the world. To that end, A Place of Grace has set a communal goal of 700 mission hours by May 2nd, 2019. We currently have 438.44/700 hours.
In December, we will stuff stockings for Hoyleton Youth & Family Services (12/5) and wrap Christmas gifts at Uni-Pres Kindercottage (12/12). In January 2019, we will work with Community Hope Center (1/9) and Riverbend Family Ministries (1/23). You are invited to participate with us! Mark your calendar for the Mission Madness events and email or PM Julie to RSVP. Those who wish to volunteer should contact Julie at least a couple of days ahead to get departure details since we often try to carpool to Mission Madness events.
Please plan to wear an APOG shirt, which you can purchase at exactly the cost I pay for them. Shirts need to be ordered in advance in order to have them to wear. We look forward to working alongside you in a spirit of community! Come be part of this transformative, wonder-filled, healing work.
