We love where we live and are passionate about helping make a difference in our city and region. That’s why we partner with different organizations, tackle large projects throughout the year, organize monthly opportunities to serve, and why our community groups regularly engage mission. We want to honor God by loving like Jesus.
Grace Church has partnered with a number of organizations around the Reno/Sparks area in order to provide for local needs. These are opportunities in which any individual or small groups can participate. Grace Church also encourages its members to seek ways to serve in their local communities through stocking food pantries around town, environmental clean up, visiting and caring for the sick or anything else that the Lord might lay on their hearts. We love hearing stories of God’s grace being poured out into the lives of those in need! Send us an email and share your story!
Grace Church has several teams who purchase, cook, and serve food to the homeless at the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission on a monthly basis.
Volunteers visit Rosewood Rehabilitation Center monthly as a group. They focus on the long-term care residents by playing Bingo with them, or visiting individuals in their rooms. The goal is for individual volunteers to “adopt a grandparent” and visit them at other times through the month. The mission is to show them the love of Christ in a tangible way by loving and spending time with them.
Pathfinders is a ministry for inner-city and at-risk children that meets every Friday night. The activities for the evening include dinner, indoor games, Bible lessons, worship, and crafts.
The Food Pantry of Grace Church exists to help those families and individuals that are in need of emergency food. Our Food Pantry consists of non-perishable food items and a limited supply of paper products and baby items. All items for our food pantry are donated by members of Grace Church throughout the year. Donations are always accepted. You can drop them off at the church office during the week or to a Hello Team member during Sunday services. The Hello Team are the ones in the blue shirts!
