Grace Gives Volunteers

Sunday, June 25 - Friday, June 30

Why Should I Volunteer?


Obeying God's call to spread the gospel should be the most important thing we do as a church. Grace Gives is an opportunity for you to use your gifts and abilities to reach your local community, and to work together as a church to build Christ's kingdom. You may have never gone on a mission trip in your entire life. Maybe you thought it was too scary, too time-consuming, or too troublesome. That's why we offer a mission trip that's simple and right in your own backyard!


As your pastors, we urge you to take a week or day off work and volunteer for Grace Gives. Yes, we believe a mission trip like this is that important for you! If you call Grace your church home, then the question isn't: Should I help with Grace Gives? The question is: How should I help with Grace Gives?

  • All the resources you need are provided by Grace
