Grace in Action: The Shop
John Wesley, the founder of the early Methodist movement, encouraged us to grow in our faith by "doing good of every possible sort, and, as far as possible, to all." United Methodists continue to live out our faith every day through acts of loving service.

Grace member, Nancy Soderstrom, lives out her faith through volunteering and supporting The Shop in downtown Brainerd. Three years ago Cindy Moore, founder of The Shop, visited Grace's United Methodist Women. She shared the mission of The Shop to nurture youth to improve wellness and healthy life transitions.
