Care

Here at Grace we would like to help our people who are experiencing financial difficulties in a holistic way. Our goal is to develop a team of people who have various talents and abilities to help people.


  • If your problem is finding a job, we would like to offer the services of someone who knows how to help people find jobs.
  • If your problem is getting something fixed, we would like to be able to refer you to people who could help you fix it or find a reputable place to get it fixed.
  • If your problem is a temporary financial crisis, we would like to have you sit down with someone who could help you find the needed funds to deal with your situation.
  • If your problem is an ongoing financial shortfall, we would like to help you find someone who could help you look at possible solutions to your budget.
  • If you are sick and need assistance, we would like to help you find someone who has the gift of mercy.


So if you are experiencing any of these challenges or you are a person who would like to offer your helping services, please feel free to call the church office (987-7763) to set up an appointment with one of our pastors.

 

Here at Grace we would also like to help the people of our community who are experiencing financial difficulties. The way we do that is by helping to support and staff an organization in the community specifically established for that purpose. If you call our church just looking for financial help, we will most likely refer you to a local organization called Helping Hands, which now has an office here in DeMotte. If you would like to make an appointment, call 219-394-2339.
