Service/Outreach (Helping and Sharing)

Traditionally called “Outreach,” or “Service” ministries, the people of Grace seek simply to help others by attending to their needs and sharing our time, treasure and talent.

We follow Jesus’s mandate to fully love God and our neighbors. We believe that our actions in the world are also a form of worship. For this reason, we seek opportunities to provide for those in need of assistance and advocate for peace and social justice.

Among our active ministries are:

Loaves and Fishes -providing food for those who are hungry in Martinez

People Feeding People -serving free, hot meals to iLoaves and Fishes 2ndividuals who are homeless

Backpacks for students – providing school supplies for children who would otherwise not have them

Contra Costa interfaith Housing – providing shelter, support and resources to homeless individuals.

Spirit of Giving gift program.- a yearly effort to ensure that all children receive Christimas gifts.

In addition, we support Episcopal Community Services, Episcopal Impact Fund, Boys and Girls Club of Contra Costa County and other Episcopal and local organizations. We also promote social justice through the  Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County and the Diocese of California.
