OUTREACH

Outreach is Essential

We consider outreach an essential part of who we are as a church. God has richly blessed us and allowed us to partner with wonderful organizations in Lancaster County and around the world. Below, you will see some helpful resources that we are aware of that help you get an idea of our connection to the world. In addition, you will find many links to help you get connected to our missions partners. Have questions? Simply contact us.

Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the fewest followers of Christ.

The Global Ministries Community (GMC) exists to empower national churches, facilitate mission workers, and nurture a global vision of God’s redemptive mission within all EC Churches. 

Local Outreach

At Grace Community Church, we frequently ask ourselves an important question: If our church closed down, would anyone who doesn’t attend notice? With this in mind, we have a number of strategic partnerships with community organizations. If you would like more information, contact Pastor Kevin Kumher.
