Missions Guide

The holidays bring unique seasonal opportunities to pray, give, and go for our community and world.

PRAY

Everyone can pray! Along with specific prayers you’ll find below, we also invite you to continue praying for your three. There’s even a guide to help you get started!

GIVE

Consider giving in the various ways presented below or through our current 5&Change initiative: Meals for Medina which will contribute to Thanksgiving Meal Boxes and other meals throughout the year.

GO

There will be some opportunities to go and do something to help others in our community and world, to build relationships and share the story and message of Jesus with others in tangible ways.

Neighboring is all about mobilizing the people of Medina East Campus toward meeting the spiritual and material needs of those in our community motivated by Jesus’ love for others.

Medina East will provide Thanksgiving Meal Boxes to families in need. Help meet local food needs by giving to 5&Change or volunteer to assemble and deliver a Thanksgiving meal box.

Partnering with Medina County Job and Family Services on their annual toy drive and wishlist initiative for foster care children in Medina County. 

Oasis of Hope is doing a Christmas Blessing Program with options of blessing a family with gifts or buying gift cards. Gifts and gift card drop off will be December 11th & 12th.

Sign up to bring/serve meals for our community at Cups Cafe. Go as a Life Group, family, individual or with friends. Register soon as spots fill up quick during the holidays!

We hope you’ll find that Grace is somewhere that you can feel comfortable to explore faith, ask questions, grow spiritually, and connect with others. And most importantly, of course, we hope you connect with God!
