Grace Ministries of the United Methodist Church is a mission project that serves our growing immigrant community and shares the gospel of God’s love through monthly distributions of food, clothing and diapers at seven United Methodist churches in Northern Virginia. Additionally, Grace Ministries provides job training programs for personal care aides, certified nurse aides and for CDL/ESL training for school bus drivers. This combination of services is meant to provide assistance to ease emergency situations and also provide a more long-term employment solution that will offer career opportunities in areas of significant workforce needs.
Volunteers are essential to this ministry. Volunteer opportunities for this ministry are available on Friday or Saturday of the event, and student volunteers can earn service hour credits.
