Our Philosophy of Giving

 

At Grace, we believe that the resources bestowed upon us are blessings provided by God. We are charged to be good stewards of these resources and use them in a manner that furthers God’s work in the world. Part of this work is spreading God’s word and giving back to those in need through service and support. We give joyfully and with gratitude for all that has been provided to us.
