With membership open to any interested parishioner, this committee meets on a periodic basis to discuss possible ways to raise funds for outreach, and to discern outreach ministries to support that are reflective of the parish members’ wishes.
Holy Comforter Food Pantry
One of our established ministries is supported by various fund raisers such as our annual spaghetti supper, with proceeds going to support the food pantry at our companion parish, Holy Comforter.
Georgia Washington School
Each school year, we collect supplies for donation to the middle school that is only a short distance from Grace; we also provide periodic social events for the faculty.
Parish members serve on the board of an official Episcopal Jubilee Center that is housed in the renovated, former Holy Comforter church in downtown Montgomery, serving as a location for various youth and faith organizations.
Support for Homeless
Grace parishioners bring donations of small toiletries, blankets, socks, and warm clothing, provide volunteer services, and serve on the boards of the Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless and local shelters.
Sawyerville Day Camp
Each year Grace parishioners collect beach towels, food, or other items as requested by the Diocese to support the day camp for underprivileged children, held in Sawyerville in west central Alabama.
This mission makes a trip each summer to provide medical, spiritual, and educational services to the people of Honduras.
