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 goal of 500 mission hours by May 2nd, 2018, our second anniversary. The current total is 274.83 hours, thanks to dedicated people in this ever-growing APOG community.
In February, A Place of Grace will be working with two area agencies: Uni-Pres Kindercottage in East St. Louis (2/14) and Caravan OASIS in Alton (2/27). You are invited to participate with us! Mark your calendar for the Mission Madness events, then RSVP via email or the Facebook event at least three days in advance, so Julie can let the directors know how many to expect which helps with planning.
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.
