MARCH IS SERVE MONTH AT GRACE! As part of our Transform 1:8 vision, we want to help everyone at Grace find their calling. One way we are doing that is “Step In,” a one-month focus on serving. Our goal is that 150 new people would find their place to serve in ministry. Throughout the month, there will be SHADOW STEP experiences, where you can quickly shadow current volunteers to test out different opportunities. There is no limit to how many people you can shadow. Our hope would be that, out of shadowing, we would onboard at least 150 new volunteers. On March 29, we will have a celebration Sunday where you can commit to a team and STEP IN! It’s going to be a fun month! Look over SHADOW STEP opportunities and sign up to shadow by going to whoisgrace.com/SERVE or text STEPIN to 94090.
