As a family of servant missionaries, we strive to engage our world with the Gospel and the love of Jesus at many different levels and ways.
Operation Christmas Child
Grace Life fills shoeboxes for kids all around the world through Operation Christmas Child. OCC is a local mission opportunity that transitions into global missions by providing a simple but effective gift for kids all around the world. Grace Life strives to pack as many shoeboxes as possible and bring them together to pray over and dedicate before they are sent to their next location. This is a simple and amazing project for you and your family to participate in all together. Give local, think global! Pack one by picking up a shoebox at church at the foyer display. Please bring your shoebox(s) to the sanctuary Sunday November 15 during the service you attend to be dedicated. Give local, think global!
