We love partnering with the local church within our global partnerships; it’s how we see a short term trip turn into life change! We have three GO Teams to be a part of in the next 6 months. There are two construction teams headed to Mazatlan (November ’17 and February ’18) and one team headed to Haiti in February! We are in need of carpenters, plumbers, painters, and electricians for Mazatlan. If you are interested in any of these trips the info meetings for all 3 trips will be August 26th at 6:45pm in Classrooms A (Haiti) and Classroom D (Mazatlan) or you can email Sarah Yajko at syajko@graceohio.org



South Street is hosting their 4th Annual Trails ‘N’ Rails family fun ride on September 30th! This is a fun way to support South Street as a family or life group! There is an option to ride or walk with a picnic carnival to wrap up the event. Supporting South Street in this way means that the ministry staff can focus more time building relationships in the community. To sign up you can follow this link.
