We have a number of Ministries here at Grace Mennonite Fellowship. Check them out!
Appalachian Service Project
A team from Grace goes to Appalachia to serve through volunteer home repair.
Congregational Care Team
This ministry schedules visits to persons in the hospital; elderly persons in the hospital, retirement communities, or at home; and special situations such as persons in crisis—health, emotional or spiritual. Contact the coordinator if you are aware of a need.
GMF Kids at Grace have activities as announced for children grades 1-5 and their families. Talk to Rudy Cox, Karena Mathias, Teresa Shifflett, Sheila Garber, Angelique Liskey or Diane Oswald for questions.
Grace Mennonite Fellowship Learning Center
Since 1999, Grace Mennonite Fellowship has partnered with Rev. Larry and Ruth Vitor to support a learning center in the Philippines. The regular school year starts in June and ends in March with summer class during April and May. The students range in age from 3-5 years old. Sponsors of the school are paired with a student who is currently attending the learning center and giving mainly supports the teachers’ salaries.
Highland Retreat Summer Camp Scholarships
All children who would like to attend summer camp should be able to do so! And Grace is willing to help make that possible for every family. Scholarships are available for campers going to Highland Retreat.
Grace’s camperships will match your deposit. Simply enter the appropriate code during registration. The code can be obtained by contacting the church office. You do not need to turn in an invoice to the church office. Contact the church office with questions or if additional assistance is needed. The money to fund camp scholarships comes from the coin offering, and Highland Retreat matches 50% of Grace’s contribution,
up to $50, so our funds go a long way! There is also a $50 discount for multiple siblings.
If you want to know more about Highland Retreat, talk to a camper who has been there, contact the church office, or go to www.highlandretreat.org.
Lacey Spring Food Pantry
Our food pantry is open every Monday of the month from 1-5:30pm. The fourth Monday of each month is a USDA pantry, which requires individuals to be registered for USDA products. We are open to anyone who is in need.
Our pantry offers frozen meats, frozen bread and baked goods plus fresh produce items. The full pantry USDA offers dry goods and canned goods. Our mission is to help eliminate hunger in the surrounding area by providing residents in need.
Contact Kay Kibler for more information or to volunteer.
A group meets to fill backpacks with food, which is given to children in need at Lacey Spring Elementary School to take home over the weekend.
The Meals Ministry provides meals for individuals or families who need assistance in times of illness, grief, new baby, or other situations. If
you would like to help when meals are needed for those at Grace, contact Diane Oswald.
Mennonite Disaster Service recruits, organizes and empowers volunteers to repair and rebuild the homes of those impacted by disasters in the United States and Canada. As we respond with Christian love to serve people who would not otherwise have the means to recover, our goal is to restore hope and bring people home.
