Compassionate Inreach

Inreach at Grace Church is a series of ministries or programs where laypeople in the parish assist the clergy in reaching out to support, and express our care and concern to those members who are unable to participate with their presence. Our stated mission is “to provide care and support for all parishioners and especially those in need."

Ministry of Presence: Holy Listening and Prayer

Beginning Sunday September 9, 2018, Community of Hope, International chaplains will be present in the Chapel during the Christian Formation hour (9:30-10:30 AM) to meet with individuals for prayer. This time is available for individuals who may choose to come on a regular basis or one time. It will also be a space held intentionally for prayer so that even if you don’t need to talk to another person but just want a space for quiet prayer, this time and space will be available.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors

This ministry consists of teams who take Holy Communion from our Sunday Eucharist to those who are unable to attend that day, and thereby provide them the opportunity to share in our corporate worship. There is some training involved and LEVs are licensed by the Diocese to carry out this important ministry.

Healing Prayer

Volunteers serving this ministry offer healing prayer to parishioners during communion at the 10:45 AM service every Sunday during Advent and Lent.

Funeral Reception Committee

This group assists in setting up, serving at, and cleaning up after funeral receptions in the parish hall.

Meals Committee

Parishioners work in teams of 5-6 people for 2 non-consecutive months to provide fresh meals for church members after the birth of a child, as a result of hospitalization, or death in the family when there is no funeral reception.

Cards & Notes Ministry

Volunteers send cards and personal notes on a monthly or occasional basis to homebound parishioners or those experiencing a crisis of some sort.

 A call to the church office at 770-536-0126 is all that is needed to set things in motion to provide any of these ministries.
