Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10

Grace United Methodist Church congregation was established in 1844 and for over 175 years Grace UMC has maintained a strong presence in the Montgomery County community. Our Ministries are an outward demonstration of the love and compassion Grace UMC and it’s congregation exemplify. We believe the church should be a social agent of the community by reaching out to those in need. The following are brief descriptions of the ministries at Grace UMC. It should be noted that besides the strong leadership of Pastor Jim Miller and Deacon Helen Ballew, the primary force behind these ministries are members within the congregation and the outside volunteers who commit their time and expertise to serve our diverse community. 

Not all Grace ministries are active at all times. Our Friday Grace Notes newsletter is the best way to find areas of need within the community and around the globe. Subscribe today!
