Mission and Outreach
The Mission and Outreach Committee is focused on building partnerships and opportunities to support individuals in need and the communities we live in. We have an active Mission and Outreach Committee which are actively involved in local partnerships and projects, such as:
Ryerson Camp We, along with UCW and our Children's Ministry and Messy Church, actively support Ryerson Camp and offer assistance to children wanting to go to camp. We also support the camp by looking after the Cabin 4 at the camp, last year we replaced some siding, installed new screen doors and re-painted the cabin.
Lifeline Food bank Many members of our church are active members of the food bank providing organisation, treasurer, help on the Tuesday morning distribution and also many members help through food and produce donations.
Lakewood Public School We contribute to the Christmas family support program for needy children.
Seniors Helping Seniors - we do small projects- 1-2 hours of work as a service to seniors. The service is free but we ask that you consider a donation to the Grace United M&O. If you have a project- don't be shy- our motto is no job is too small! Call Jim Dawson at 519 583 3328.
Nations Uniting Nations Uniting is a group that encourages dialog and understanding between First Nations and other Canadians. We participate in a number of programs such as sharing circles and grandmother's tea.
Our M&O team also raise awareness and funds to support projects such as Canadian Foodgrains Bank, Caribbean Workers Outreach program and Riversyde83. We are also working with local churches to help resettle Syrian Refugees.
