Grace Presbyterian Church longs to make the amazing grace of the good news of the gospel known. As we look at the brokenness around us, in our relationships, work, world, and even our own hearts, we oftentimes are left asking, Who will make this right…who can make me right? The good news is that though we are unable to fix, mend, and heal, God is both able and willing. GPC is not a place of people who have it together, but rather a place of those who are seeking God’s amazing grace.
Wherever you find yourself in this journey, we will walk with you as God transforms us together and magnifies his grace in and through us.

From Christianity Today to Catalyst, the biblical call to “defend the cause of the fatherless” (Isaiah 1:17) is on hearts and minds of Christians in a way not seen in generations. Last year, the national Orphan Sunday campaign led by the Christian Alliance for Orphans helped stoke this movement to a new intensity, including more than 2,000 local Orphan Sunday events nationwide. The campaign aims for more than 2,000 events across America the first weekend of November, calling Christians to adoption, foster care and global orphan ministry.
More than 130 national and international organizations have joined forces in the Christian Alliance for Orphans to promote the campaign, including household names like Bethany Christian Services, Buckner, Focus on the Family, Show Hope and Family Life.
“Orphan Sunday calls the Church to make the Gospel visible,” said Jedd Medefind, President of the Christian Alliance for Orphans. “When Christians open their hearts and homes in adoption, foster care and global orphan ministry, we mirror the God who did the same for us.”
The website www.orphansunday.org serves as a hub for the campaign, offering event ideas, downloadable materials and ways individuals can partner with orphan-serving ministries to hold local events. The site also contains a map of the country that will highlight local events nationwide as they are scheduled.
There are more than 400,000 children in the foster system in the U.S. today, with over 100,000 waiting to be adopted. Globally, an estimated 17.8 million children have lost both parents. The Orphan Sunday campaign invites Christians to be God’s answer to these needs. “We set the lonely in families because God set us in His.”

Many know that Grace’s worship is suffused with the retuned hymns of RUF and Indelible Grace. If you have some time, you can watch the story of Indelible Grace and learn what inspired this movement. And you’ll get to listen to some great music on the way…
