Jesus came to show us how to love as God loves. And one of the ways we love as God loves is to help those who are refugees, those who seek asylum from political tyranny, poverty, famine, or other hardship.Bishop Michael Curry, Christmas 2021
Working in partnership with a larger network in Alexandria which includes Christ Church, Immanuel on the Hill, Rock Springs Unified Congregational Church (Arlington) and St. Paul’s in Old Town, Grace Church has been actively engaged in supporting Afghan families resettling in Alexandria. The Grace “Care Team” began working in early 2022 in support of one family. Just like “fishes and loaves,” we have expanded our support in the spring of 2022 by taking on two additional families.
Donations of gently used or new clothing and shoes, along with gift cards (increments of $25 up to $100 will be best), are the most needed items to provide support to the families Grace Church is supporting. Please contact the church office at 703-549-1980 for details about how to give.
