Mercy Ministries

Header Image

Established in the Scriptures, the office of Deacon is created for the purpose of ministering to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress.  In addition Deaconesses are seen in the Scripture assisting in this important ministry. Galatians 6:10 teaches us to “do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers”.

The Deacons and Deaconesses of Grace Church are involved in mercy ministries to assist those in need, first to Church members and regular attendees, second to those with a connection to the Church, and third to those with no connection to the Church, but within our geographical area.  There is also an outreach to the rest of the world, where there have been disasters due to floods, wind, earthquakes etc., through gifts of money to Missions to North America (MNA) and Missions to the World (MTW) through our denomination’s headquarters.  Occasionally, teams within our Church are organized to go out and assist in these areas.

Individual Church members and attendees are encouraged to help people they encounter in their daily lives if within their power to do so.  Otherwise, seek out a Deacon or Deaconess and provide them with information and suggestions on helping those in need.  Funding for the mercy ministries is through designated offerings and special offerings several times a year.  The assistance provided is for food, shelter, utilities, transportation, and special counseling needs.  Be a good steward of God’s money and give to minister to others through the Mercy Fund.
