CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
An umbrella group that includes support and information sharing. This includes: Take a Tote, coffee hour, Grace Needlers, St Nicholas Fair, Card Ministry, Book Club and associated community social events.
Grace Episcopal Church‘s “Take a Tote” outreach program was created in 2010 to address the issue of physical hunger at our city schools. From a beginning of seven totes filled with cereal, fruit cups, macaroni and cheese, pasta, tuna, crackers and snack bars, we now deliver fifty bags each week to Mill Brook School (K-2) in the Heights area of Concord.
We meet and discuss a book a month, taking off December and the summer months. The group is flexible and utilizes a small group format.
We continue our prayer shawl ministry with shawls for parishioners and others. We also provide scarves for the Red Scarves for former foster kits and knit hats for individuals with cancer.
We send birthday and anniversary greetings to our parishioners. In addition, we send encouragements to those with illness and condolences to those suffering loss.
Grace Sunday School is taught by volunteers and classes meet from 9:30-10:15 am, after which the children join their families for the Eucharist.
