Partners in Ministry

The Partners in Ministry Designated Offering Program at Grace is one of the ways that we are Reaching Out in Christ's Love. Each month, we pass the plate for an organization that aligns with our Mission, and about whose mission our members and friends feel passionately. Our impact is doubled thanks to the Grace Foundation, who match every gift dollar for dollar, up to $2,000/month.

May 2021: Community Foundation Boulder County

In response to the March 22, 2021, mass shooting in South Boulder at King Soopers, Community Foundation Boulder County has established a fund to support the victims, their families, and our community in dealing with and processing these events. To respond effectively and holistically to this crisis, they will ensure support reaches three concentric circles of proximity: victims & their families, those directly affected, and the broader community.

June 2021: Rocky Mountain Synod

The Rocky Mountain Synod is one of 65 synods in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). It is the largest synod, geographically, in the lower 48. The synod is further divided into ten conferences. The Rocky Mountain Synod territory consists of 160 congregations and reaches from Wyoming to the north, Utah to the west, Colorado to the east, and New Mexico to the south, with the unique addition of El Paso, Texas, along the southern border. 

 

About 2/3 of Rocky Mountain Synod congregations are in Colorado, with the highest concentration along the Front Range from Fort Collins to Pueblo.

July 2021: Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)

Since 1918, EFAA has been a locally operated community safety net for families in times of need. Throughout EFAA’s 100 year plus history, the organization has helped tens of thousands of families get back on their feet, and been supported by tens of thousands of donors and volunteers dedicated to EFAA’s mission.

 

EFAA helps those in our community whose immediate needs for food, shelter and other basic necessities cannot be adequately met by other means, and supports their efforts toward financial stability or self-sufficiency. As Boulder’s Family Resource Center, they are dedicated to helping members of our community meet their immediate needs and springboard out of poverty.



Below are the organizations we have contributed to over the past few years through our designated PiM Offering.
