Grace Church is an active and vital part of the community. Through our many activities throughout the year, we work to make His Presence known.Grace Church annually "adopts" a local family each Christmas season. Our parishioners give generously to families in need, in order to make the holidays merry and bright.
To show our love and support for those in times of crisis or transition, Grace Church gathers together to fashion Comfort Covers - small quilts lovingly stitched in prayer. Each Cover is hand-tied and blessed in the name of those who need or have requested our prayers. These are then sent to those in need, along with the love, thoughts and blessings of the people of Grace Church.
Tuesday's Table is a program started in 2004 by St Joeseph's Catholic Church to serve a meal to anyone who is in need. Grace Church began participating in 2005. The motto for this shared ministry is "Good Food, Good Company!"
Each Tuesday a different organization sends members to the Church to prepare, serve and clean-up. We are on the schedule for the fourth Tuesday every other month. This is a very fulfilling ministry! Our Youth are especially helpful and they enjoy it as much as everyone else does!
Grace has been collecting toiletries and packaging them to give away at the meals. In the Winter, we also donate hats, mittens, scarves, jackets and any other warm outer wear we can. All have been well received. Our church donates $50.00 each month to maintain the program. Also, there are various fundraisers through the year. The biggest, and the most fun, is the Wine Tasting. It is in the Spring and always well attended!
Come join the fun!
People of Grace - Alzheimer's Walk
The People of Grace is a group of people who walk in the Alzheimer's Walk as an outreach of Grace Church. The Alzheimer's Walk is a short and easy walk through Menomonie''s Wakanda Park in September. Adults and children are welcome to participate.
It is a wonderful way to show support for people living with this terrible disease, both patients and caregivers and to remember those who have died from Alzheimer's Disease. Walkers are asked to collect pledges but there is no requirement or minimum amount of money to raise. The People of Grace group has raised a large amount of money for research and programs.
