Grace Bags

 

Our youth collect items & assemble Grace Bags. They are plastic bags filled with items a homeless person could use.  Our members carry the Grace Bags in their cars and distribute them as needed to homeless individuals whom they encounter in the community.

The Youth and Children will take part in Service Sunday, which will include assembling the Grace Bags.  Below is a list of items, if you would like to make a donation.

  • bottle of water (16 ounces)
