A NOTE FROM PASTOR DOUG
Dear Grace Family,
For nearly 125 years, Grace has been a missional church. It is who we are called to be. We believe whole-heartedly that we are to “declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples” (Psalm 96:3). That means teaching kids to read right here on the east side of Detroit, and helping young girls escape the horrific reality of human trafficking in India. It means providing food for the hungry in our neighborhood and working on behalf of the oppressed in Belize and Honduras. It means helping students at the University of Michigan and Ball State to know Jesus, as well as students as far away as Morocco.
God has allowed us to partner with some amazing workers here in Detroit and all over the world – people who are true pioneers in the missions world. These partners are making ground-breaking strides in areas like trauma debriefing, missionary care, business as missions, campus ministry, and community development. But this work requires funding.
This is where you come in! In 2023, we are going to raise $275,000* to continue the work that has already started. It’s a big goal, but if each person who calls Grace their church home would give just 1% of their annual income toward this goal, we would easily surpass it.
The money you give will go directly to help those experiencing deep physical and spiritual needs. We ask you to BE ONE person who will GIVE ONE percent to HELP ONE child or adult to hear the Good News of Jesus.
Please join us and be a part of the good work God is doing through Grace. We ask that you pray, then hear and obey. Please use the enclosed envelope to provide a one-time gift or, like I do, to make a pledge for the coming year. Together, we can make a difference! Be one. Give one. Help one.
