Serving People

To borrow a line from A Christmas Carol “Mankind is our business” at Grace Community Church. We cheerfully embrace our Lord’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves, whether they are living in Terre Haute or abroad. Below we list some of the ministries Grace members support with their time and money. We do this to encourage all to greater acts of love and to glorify God:

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 (NASB)

Overseas Ministries: Below is a picture of the Montoya family in South America whom Grace Community sponsors corporately.

Other overseas ministries supported by Grace members include:

  • OMS: Missionaries to various countries including the Philippines, Kazakstan, and Haiti
  • World vision: Sponsorship of several children, financial support
  • Compassion International: Child sponsorship, financial support
