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 950 mission hours by May 2nd, 2020. To date, we have 532.07/950 hours.
In November, we will work with Riverbend Family Ministries (11/13) and Caravan OASIS (11/26). In December, we will work with Hoyleton Youth & Family Services (12/4) and Uni-Pres Kindercottage (12/11), plus those who would like to can sign up to help Community Hope Center (12/18-19) and Riverbend Family Ministries (12/16-19) with their Christmas extravaganzas!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.
