We’re partnering with Interfaith Community Services (ICS) again this year to help feed local families in need! Drop of pasta and/or pasta sauce during the month of February in our breezeway bin to help out!
We partner with several key local ministries to make a kingdom difference in the lives of those at the margins in our community. Check out the list here, then when you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, click the button below.
The Loving Church is dedicated to serving the spiritual and physical needs of the surrounding community, including worship services in both English and Korean, and including meals for people who need them.
Our goals include both outreach at GAP SPLASH Houses/Warehouse as well as invitations to join events and worship at Grace.
By partnering with Interfaith Community Services, we help seniors in our area with transportation, food donation, meal delivery, and friendly phone calls to check in on them weekly.
Another new and key program we support is ICS' Workforce Development Center (WFDC). From job readiness to soft skill development to self-efficacy programs, the WFDC supports clients on their path to develop the skills and confidence needed to secure a job and stay employed.
Power Over Predators works to alert adults and kids to the critical dangers of in-person and online abuse by equipping them with skills to prepare, intervene, and protect from victimization.
SISTER Connection is a not for profit, Christ-centered ministry welcoming women who have been impacted by the judicial system: currently in jail or prison; releasing from jail or prison; on probation or parole; released through pretrial services; and/or have a loved one in prison or previously incarcerated.
We want to help Jesus in His work to love others through outreach efforts. Our Outreach Team continually works to discern how best to do that within our community. Their goal is to have the greatest impact we can to fulfill felt needs and to help people come to know and have a personal relationship with Jesus.
Our Outreach Team is responsible for setting the vision and goals and to help with project coordination and approvals for Grace outreach efforts.
Our mission is to release our church’s gifts and passions to serve the local community so they can be loved, belong, and believe.
Be loved — meet felt needs with the Great Commandment in mind
Belong — help people find a faith community where they can belong
Believe — encourage people to be discipled, to take one step closer to Jesus
To be as effective as we can, the team has outlined the following ministry scope:
7-mile radius of Grace: our primary focus, with the “belong” goal being at Grace
20-mile radius of Grace: our secondary focus, with the “belong” goal being a local church close/accessible to the ministry/people we are partnering with to serve
For all events, outreach or otherwise, please submit an Event Request by clicking the button below.
Note that the Grace staff works on annual calendar planning for the upcoming year in the fall of the prior year! As soon as you have an idea you'd like to try, please submit your request for consideration and timing! The process will include getting back to you either with approval or suggested changes, depending on other events happening at Grace.
Grace's outreach has traditionally spanned a larger area than the current 7-mile radius. The 7-mile radius isn't meant to limit our impact across Tucson! Rather, the efforts we can put forth within the radius enable us to directly support the "Belong" and "Believe" parts of our outreach mission. We want to help people with their immediate needs (to help them "Be Loved" right where they are), and invite them into our spiritual family at Grace to minister to their spiritual needs, too. When they are within the 7-mile radius, we stand a better chance of them accepting an invitation to worship with us.
But, when there are needs we can meet outside the 7-mile radius (preferably within a 20-mile span), our goal will be to partner with local churches near where our efforts take us so that hopefully those churches can take on the "Belong" and "Believe" goals so important to us.
