At GrandView, we fund various missions and outreach needs through our tithes. We follow the principal that we “tithe on the tithes” we receive; therefore, 10% of the general offerings the church receives are channeled into a variety of areas for missions and outreach. Part of this tithe is forwarded to ministries outside our church while the rest is set aside into 4 different restricted funds for our own missions and outreach use.

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat works towards their vision by building strength, stability, and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

At GrandView, it is important that we serve on one of the Habitat for Humanity construction sites and we are currently targeting Saturday, June 1st from 8:30-4:30PM.

Participants must:

-If you are interested, add your name to the Habitat for Humanity sign up sheet located in the Narthex.

If you are not available for that date, we will keep your name handy for potential communications coming out about additional dates.

Mercy’s Gate was founded in 1982 as Northern Churches Care by five area churches who wanted to serve low-income families by offering a simple food pantry. The food pantry was intended to help struggling families make their paychecks stretch a little farther and to ensure that these individuals and families knew they were loved and supported during times of hardship.

Today, in addition to an on-site food pantry, they offer a holistic range of services including rental and utilities assistance, transportation and clothing vouchers, medical and prescription assistance, legal and tax services, and spiritual support and church referrals.

As a partner church, GrandView is committed to helping those in need along side Mercy’s Gate. There is a new food bin in our front hallway as Mercy’s Gate has some critical needs in their pantry. Please prayerfully consider helping by joining us in the mission to fill this bin and help support our neighbors in need with the following items:

  • Ramen
  • Rice (buy in bulk) and boxed pasta
  • Oatmeal and Rolled Oats
  • Boxed cereal
  • Baby diapers ( sizes 4, 5, 6)
  • Baked goods
  • Canned fruit, carrots/mixed vegetables
  • Canned meals (tuna, spam, salmon, chicken, ravioli)
  • Crackers
  • Sugar
  • Peanut Butter
