Grace UMC supports many local, state, national, and international missions.  Some of these are highlighted on this page.

Red Bird Mission, Kentucky

Members of Grace join with members of the Hurtsboro United Methodist Church, Hurtsboro, Alabama and Trinity United Methodist Church, Phenix City, Alabama, to send a team to Redbird Mission's Work Camp each spring.  Over the past years teams have worked constructing ramps and porches, repairing houses, building a large shed to hold construction supplies, assisting with medical and dental records, helping in the Community Store, doing needed clean-up and helping at the Senior Center, sorting lables, and doing other tasks as needed.

All church members and friends can be a part of this team as well by saving Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education from Campbell's Soup and other products.  These labels help Red Bird fund school bus routes, equipment for Red Bird School, and other needed items.  Please deposit labels in the designated boxes in Friendship Hall, Memorial Fellowship Hall, and near the Church Office.  The work team will take the labels on their next trip to Red Bird.





Habitat for Humanity

 Grace UMC is part of the We Help Coalition along with a number of other area churches.  This coalition works to raise funds to constuct housing as part of Habitat for Humanity.  Each year two primary fundraisers are held: Blueberry Sales in June (and as long as the blueberries are harvested) and the annual Cookie Walk in December.  The coalition is presently working on another house in the Auburn community.




Alabama Rural Ministry

One way Grace supports Alabama Rural Ministry is by providing space for meetings with clients and for other activities.  Members of the Grace family provide financial support and also serve as members of ARM and help in other ways.



Auburn Community Market

Grace UMC contributes monetarily each month to the Community Market.  In addition individuals and groups work in the Community Market periodically.  Spurred by our Vacation Bible School's adoption this summer of the Community Market as its mission project, our members continue to provide plastic bags, egg cartons, food, and funds to the Market.

If you would like to participate in any mission activities at Grace UMC, contact the church office.
