Missions 

Grace had 214 volunteers participate in the 2014 "Feed the Need" Mobile Pack event (including 55 of our children and their friends and families), packing 247 boxes--or 53,352 meals!--for hungry children across the globe.  That's 146 children fed for an entire year!  At .22 per meal, the cost for just our session was $11,737.44.  Thank you, Grace!


Helping the Hungry Each Month
Households with limited resources often must choose between paying their rent and feeding their families.  Food assistance can prevent the tragedy of homelessness for people who find themselves in the position of having to make such a difficult choice.  Grace United Methodist Church supports the following three food pantries with donations made on the first Sunday of every month:

Loaves & Fishes
Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry/Hesed House
Common Pantry

In addition to groceries, all of our food pantries accept financial donations.  Because of their tax-exempt status and buying resources, each $5 donated equals $50 worth of food for a hungry family!  Monetary donations can be placed in the ceramic "Love Loaf" at the back of the Grace Sanctuary or in the offering plate in an envelope marked "Love Loaf."  Please make checks payable to Grace UMC, noting "Love Loaf" on the memo line.
