PURPOSE

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”Mark 10:45 NIV

As Christians, we are to model our lives after Jesus, and in Mark 10:45 we see that Jesus came to serve. All through the new testament we see examples of Jesus showing His love for people through service. Our goal is to show the Greater Killeen area the love of God by serving the city and surrounding areas with no strings attached.

We believe we are called this community.


At Grace, we serve and partner with different programs and organizations in our community to equip community leaders, restore healthy families and support people in crisis. We believe we are called to make an impact in this community. Called to transform it with the love of God and the hope of Christ. We invite you to join us in serving and reaching out to the Greater Killeen area with the love of Christ.



OUR FOCUS



EQUIP COMMUNITY LEADERS

By supporting our community leaders, we are setting up our community to grow and thrive. When the community is doing well, the citizens can expect safer environments, more job opportunities and less stress in their lives.

RESTORE HEALTHY FAMILIES

We believe the root cause of many of society’s problems is a loss of a healthy home environment. When people face problems at home, it affects every area of their life. When a couple has a healthy marriage, they do better physically, emotionally and financially. When a child grows up in a healthy family, they perform better in school, have healthier relationships and are less likely to end up in poverty in adulthood.


SUPPORT PEOPLE IN CRISIS

When someone experiences a crisis, their whole world is turned upside down. Suddenly they find themselves in need of even the most basic things like shelter, food, water and clothing. When they are able to have those needs met, they are able to think more clearly, take steps to come out of the crisis and get back on the road to restoration.

LOCAL PARTNERS

Local partners are non-profit organizations that Grace comes alongside of to support in the services they are already providing to the community. We do this by providing some combination of financial support, resources, awareness and active volunteer recruitment.




BAGS OF GRACE

Bags of Grace is an Outreach Initiative that gives the congregation the opportunity to give back to our community. Each month, we partner with different organizations and collect items that they are in need of. We provide a list of these items to the congregation and they donate what they can through Bags of Grace.
