At Grace, we believe that the church exists for the city, not the city for the church. As the city thrives, so does the church. Grace believes in serving the people of her community in tangible and practical ways, meeting both felt and real needs. We believe it’s hard to convince our community that we care about the souls of its people if we don’t demonstrate a care for the whole person. Here’s just a sampling of the ways we do that.
- Food of Faith: Four to six times a year, Grace participates with other churches in Bay City to take a turn providing a meal, fellowship and friendship to our homeless, at risk, and underserved communities.
- Night in June: Partnering with local community mental health, a Night in June seeks to bring together families, caregivers, and those who have been affected by a variety of emotional and mental disabilities, for fun, food, and music.
- Relay for Life: Cancer affects almost every family. Because of its ongoing reality, both Grace campuses participate in promoting and participating in annual Relay for Life events.
- Baby Bottle Boomerang: Working with the Beacon of Hope Pregnancy Care Center, Grace annually supports efforts like the Baby Bottle Boomerang, to offset costs for supplies for new mothers through their Blessing Shop.
- Bay Area Emergency Food Pantry Network: Both campuses at Grace are home to onsite locations where people in our community can be referred by 211 for emergency food assistance.
- National Night Out: Grace Church participates in the Bay City National Night Out, encouraging a partnership between the community and local law enforcement.
