Serving the Community and the World

So you want to make the world a better place? So do we. At Grace, we want to improve people's lives and invite others to share in that mission. There are opportunities for direct service and sharing of resources.  We are connected to the Eastern Shore food bank, partner with our local elementary school, sponsor scouts, and work on Habitat for Humanity homes. We are also connected with churches in Cambodia, missions in El Salvador, and disaster response ministries here in the United States. Whatever your passion for serving, we'll connect you.

Serving the Eastern Shore

At Grace, we are connected to the Eastern Shore, its people, and the groups who serve them.We seek to express God’s love by being the presence of Christ in activities with the residents of two area nursing homes, giving away free hot dog meals for Trunk-or-Treat, supporting Metompkin Elementary School,  and sponsoring a free community Thanksgiving dinner. Join us in support of the Eastern Shore Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Una Familia, Accomack Interfaith Crises Center, Angel Tree, Habitat for Humanity, Eastern Shore Food Bank, Lighthouse Ministries, and more. There are opportunities to serve others close to home.     


Serving Across Virginia

Grace is connected to the United Methodist Church via the Virginia Conference, a connection of 1,600 churches across the state. By pooling our resources - our time, talents, and money - we are able to carry the transforming love of Christ beyond the Shore. See how together we can change our world, one community at a time.  


Serving Around the World

Grace is part of a network of United Methodist churches across the United States and the world. Globally, the presence of Christ is represented in the United Methodist Church. There are over 300 missionaries serving here in the United States and abroad. UMCOR, the disaster response arm of the church, is one of the first on the ground and the last to leave. Our Church and Society ministry reminds us that God requires us to "do justice" (Micah 6:8).  Want to change the world? See how we can do this together.
