Grace Avenue United Methodist Church’s mission is to eradicate homelessness in whatever form it presents itself. Homelessness comes in many forms. We are called to ensure that every child of God has a spiritual home, an emotional home, and a physical home.We could not fulfill this mission without your generosity throughout the year. During this season of giving, we invite you to make a special Christmas Offering to Grace Avenue.
Children 4 years old-5th grade are invited to join us as go on an adventure of “Important Gifts”. We will focus on the true meaning of Christmas through the many GIFTS that we have been given. We will share in games, crafts, lessons and snacks. Contact [email protected] with questions or to volunteer. The cost is $15 per child for the two-week program.
This year, give Christmas Gifts that Make a Difference to loved ones through donations to one of the missions that Grace Avenue supports. You will receive a card and information about the mission to give to your loved one, letting them know that their gift is making a difference in the world. Find us in the Learning Center Lobby after worship or shop on-line.

Every week in the fall, Grace Avenue offers ESL classes (English As a Second Language). Members of the class come from all walks of life and this year speak over 6 different languages. During their last class we are offering a time of celebration, thanksgiving and fellowship for the students. Grace Avenue members are invited to share in a meal with the students and their families. We will be encouraging table conversation so the students can practice their new English skills and for everyone to learn about different cultures and customs.
