Our small investment individually makes a huge impact collectively.

Because we want to impact lives as we help people meet, follow, and share Jesus, everyone at Grace Fellowship has the opportunity once a month to partner with either families, special projects, local organizations or global organizations by giving $1 each! If every person that attends participates, we can make a huge impact collectively.

This month, needs were met ranging from families that are struggling to put food on the table, electric and heat on the brink of being shut off, significant medical crisis that could lead to bankruptcy, job loss that could lead to eviction and more!
