Grace parishioners put their faith into action, assisting the poor, the hungry, the vulnerable, the imprisoned. Some of these activities are supported directly by the Outreach Committee budget, while others are completed through the Christian Education, the Youth Group, Episcopal Church Women or through individual actions. The parish makes its building available for community meetings such as the Alcoholics Anonymous meeting that occurs every Monday night. As a ONE Episcopal Covenant Church, the 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are used as organizing principle for project selection. The Outreach Committee membership is open to everyone attending Grace Church. Representatives of each funded project are encouraged to attend the 6-8 meetings each year.
Matthew 25: 31-46
34“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
