We love to celebrate our cross cultural workers and to spend time with them when they are home! We currently have one of our Grace families home from Chad, Africa (names purposely omitted) and we will be hosting our first Coffee with Culture on April 7th at 6:45pm in Classroom D for those that would like to visit and hear about the last 2 years of ministry and the direction of our missionaries moving forward!

The trip dates are March 24-31 (2 teams) and April 7-14th. Most of the work will be repairing roofing so you need to be comfortable being on a roof. One of the teams going Marc 24-31 also needs skilled workers who know flooring and plumbing. If you are interested in being on one of these teams please email Sarah Yajko at syajko@graceohio.org by March 2nd!
