OUR MISSION:

OUTREACH AT GRACE

Community of Grace is committed to being a part of the mission of God–bringing life, grace, hope, justice, forgiveness, and mercy to the world. We do that in various ways from the financial support of various organizations to working in the local community with at-risk youth to our Grace In Action Ministry that provides meals and hands-on assistance to families in times of need, to missions trips around the world.

 

Lake Pleasant Mobile Home Estates – 19010 N Pierson Road, Sun City, AZ 85373
Thursdays @ 3:45 p.m.
We have an ongoing ministry with the community at Lake Pleasant Mobile Home
Estates.  Throughout the year we will have opportunities to help mentor kids/youth, and we will also have community events for the families.
This Spring, we will start our outreach program at Lake Pleasant Mobile Home Estates on Thursday, February 20th! We work with at-risk-youth ages Kindergarten – 12th Grade. The program will consist of a tutoring and running program. Volunteers are needed for both! An informational meeting will be held after each service the weekend of Saturday, February 15th & Sunday, February 16th. We are also looking for walkers/runners to join us Saturday, April 11th at the Hippity Hop 5k.

This is a ministry that provides a variety of gifts in times of need. It might be as simple as providing a meal, ride, mow a yard, help with a garage sale in such times when the unexpected comes our way such as in the time of surgery, sickness, the birth of a child or death in the family.

If you are a man, woman or child and interested in helping a fellow Grace’r in their time of need, please contact Kendrah at volunteer@boldrecklessgrace.org

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
The Grace prayer shawl ministry is one way to tangibly reach out to others in Christian love.  Individuals who enjoy knitting or crocheting have an opportunity to join the Prayer Shawl Knit/Crochet Group for creative expression and prayer in making prayer shawls for others in need of comfort or special blessing.  As each prayer shawl is completed, it is dedicated by members of this Group who meet twice a month at the church and then is given to the Prayer Shawl Prayer Team whose members present the prayer shawls to recipients.
If you are interested in joining the Prayer Shawl Knit/Crochet Group at Community of Grace or want more information about how to get started making a prayer shawl, the contact person is Leeta Mackey, leeta.mackey@cox.net.

BURMESE FAMILY REFUGEES
Over the past several months, we have been hearing a lot about Burma and the struggles that the people there must endure. After the devastating cyclone, when foreign aid was rejected by their government, we were made all too aware of the plight of these people who have been persecuted and abandoned by their leaders.

Our refugee families from Burma have settled in well and seem to be acclimating themselves to their new life in America. The NoSa Lam family has been here since August 2007,  and the Ah Mee family has been here since July 2008. To read more about the adventures of coming to a whole new world, go to http://refugeelam.blogspot.com/

Email Alycia at missions@BoldRecklessGrace.org or jcrsinaz@juno.com or call 623.572.0050 if you can help provide transportation or any other needs for these families.

vist our sister Lutheran church in Nyamata. You can read about the trip in Pastor Tim’s blog: http://www.recklessgrace.blogspot.com/.
