You may give gifts, tithes, and offerings online below or mail in a check to Grace Community Christian Church.

Thank you for your heartfelt gifts and generous support. Your steadfast tithes and offerings make a difference. We are grateful for your ministry.


Sometimes reading from Proverbs seems like listening to a beloved, wise, elder.
In Proverbs 22, we’re taught “those who are generous are blessed”. 

What would it take for you to act out your generosity today?
Is there someone who would delight in hearing your voice, as you make an unexpected phone call?
Will you share your food, your clothes, your time, with someone in need?
Will you offer not only money to support this congregation, but an additional gift to allow us to share bread with the poor?
For your generosity becomes a blessing, not only for those who receive from you, but for YOU!
Eager to be a blessing, and to be blessed, let us receive our morning offering.

Offering prayer

God of all good gifts, you pour out blessings, each and every day, like the water which comes from a natural spring. Knowing we are made in your image, we pray you will receive these tithes, gifts and offerings, multiply them for good, and put them to use. Accept our desire to honor you with what we’ve given, and help us celebrate the ways this offering will become a blessing for others. Amen

Opening Prayer

Merciful God, in the midst of challenging news from the world, and difficulties all round, thank you for waking us up this morning. You give us air to breathe, water and food to enjoy. You gather with us and connect us as people of faith to support and encourage one another. Hear our gratitude, receive our praise, and continue to open our lives to the gift of your presence, even as we pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
Prayer of Compassion

Lord, you know how great our needs are. In these difficult times when homes are being lost, and communities and families are experiencing great stress, come and bring your healing love to us. Help us to place our trust in you. Remind us again of how you transform lives, not just with healing, but with a spirit of hope and compassion. Keep us hopeful. Teach us not to give up when things are going wrong. Give us faith that can move mountains. Give us hearts that are ready to be of service to others in all times and in all places. As we have lifted up people and situations which concern us and have asked for your hand of healing, remind us that that same healing hand rests on us also. Enable us to be people of compassion and trust; for we ask these things in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Isaiah 35:4-7a
4 Say to those who are of a fearful heart, "Be strong, do not fear! Here is your God. He will come with vengeance, with terrible recompense. He will come and save you."
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
6 then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert;
7 the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; the haunt of jackals shall become a swamp, the grass shall become reeds and rushes.
