Journey to Generosity

“Life is an opportunity and a journey-a journey of saying “yes” to the God who calls us beloved. Life is a journey to love, to welcome, and to invite; a journey to create peace and live generously,”
The 2018 pledge time has begun at St. John’s-Grace. Consider all the blessings you have received from God’s abundance and your hope and dreams for St. John’s-Grace.
