Mission Day every second Thursday of the month during the summer (REGISTER)
Grace Avenue has partnered with Button Memorial UMC this summer to provide lunches for children from Little Elm ISD all summer. The 2nd Thursday of each month - July, and August, the youth have volunteered to make lunches and deliver them. Many of these children receive free or reduced lunch at school and during the summer, budgets make it difficult for families to provide lunches. Please sign your student up to help AND volunteer to come with us! Its a great activity you can do together.
