YOUR GIFT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Through your faithful giving, we are making an eternal impact across the world, helping more people hear the life-giving message of Jesus.
You have the opportunity to give to the church electronically, and even setting a recurring gift via SecureGive. SecureGive is Grace's new user-friendly giving platform! Why the switch from PushPay to SecureGive? SecureGive saves our church thousands of dollars each year with lower card-processing rates and no increased costs over time. SecureGive is also dedicated specifically to churches for the sake of growing ministry. All of the information that you provide is encrypted at multiple levels, making it very secure. You can have money transferred directly from your bank or credit union account to the church or use your credit card. You can access your giving records by logging into your MyCommunity account.
PushPay is still currently accessible for a limited time and is connected to church giving at Grace.
You can also use the Grace app on your smartphone. Text APP to 253.833.5660 to receive a link to set up the app on your phone, establish a giving account, and start your online giving right from your phone.
If you have questions about giving, email our finance team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Invest in Tomorrow | Projects
The Elders have identified and refreshed four “Invest in Tomorrow” projects. These are projects beyond the scope of our annual budget which the Elders believe are worthy of additional investment. Each project will help Grace Community Church to accomplish the vision God has given us. The impact of your investment will extend beyond our church family. It will reach those who live in our region, to the next generation of kids who are growing up in a culture that is antagonistic toward God, and to people around the globe through our media ministry. Examples in recent years included: building a West Entry Canopy, purchasing a new sound system in the Worship Center, and upgrades to our lobby and lobby restrooms.
Below you will find a description of each project and the costs associated with them.
Project #1: Media
Total Cost: $76,500
Raised to date: $55,090.25
Total Remaining: $14,909.75
The Media Ministry continues to grow and has become a vital and effective ministry at Grace in sharing the Gospel. With the right equipment it will allow us to create relevant and higher-quality content that will reach the 1.86 million people in King & Pierce County and around the world. The upgrades will positivitely impact the quality of “Live Streaming” and provide a higher quality of video content when recording offsite.
Project #2: Worship & Arts
Total Cost: $60,000
Raised to date: $10,772
Total Remaining: $41,228
The Worship and Arts ministry strives to provide a great worship experience in-house and online. We want to update the Worship Center stage flooring and add new HD laser projectors and screens to enhance the impact of the worship experience.
Project #3: Grace Students
Total Cost: $75,000
Raised to date: $65,504.20
Total Remaining: $9,495.80
As the ministry of Grace Students grows, and we reach more families, a remodel of the 200 level classrooms becomes a very necessary next step. Remodeling these rooms will create envi-ronments that are relevant, warm, and welcoming for all students. Our goal is that this space is a tool to inspire students, and leaders, to connect and grow in Christ together.
You can also find a printed copy of these projects, located right outside of the Worship Center, on the wall.
As the Lord leads you, thank you for considering how you can continue to build up the ministry we share as a church family and see more lives transformed in 2023, and beyond, by the grace of Jesus. If you feel led to give to any of these projects, you can do so HERE.
