This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends (John 15:12-13)
As we realize the magnitude of Christ’s sacrificial love for us, we cannot help but love others the same way. Here are some special opportunities to join other members of the Grace Church family to show God’s love to your neighbors.
Outreach Month Activities
Invite a neighbor/family member/friend/etc. to attend our Easter service with you.
Help out at the Refugee Family Dinner and Game Night at Edward Hand Middle School, Wednesday, April 24 at 5:00 pm. Grace Church is partnering with Eastern Mennonite Missions to serve refugee families in Lancaster. We will provide dinner for the families and a game night for the children. While our teens play games with the kids, their parents will attend a seminar about summer language learning programs in the School District of Lancaster and work with translators to complete their registration forms. Contact Holly Wismer to join the team.
Reach out at the Coffee Table Evangelism Project – April 27, 10:00am-12:00pm in the Lancaster City Square. Engage and interact with our neighbors in Lancaster City. Initiate gospel-centered conversations while you give out free coffee and smiles. For more information, contact Charlie Hirschy.
