Active Grace exists to help people in need. They are a non-profit organization that walks alongside families struggling with homelessness within our community. Not only do they share practical support, they share the love of Christ. They make significant investments into the lives of these families, our neighbors, to make an eternal difference.
The Active Grace Bucket is PCC's way to partner with Active Grace, helping them eliminate homelessness in our community. Read on to find out how you can use your time, talents, and resources for good.
Through PCC's partnership with Active Grace, we have the opportunity to love all people to new life in Christ. We get to do this in a number of simple ways.
First, pray for the households in our community with which Active Grace is working. Pray for those who are homeless and struggling here in central Indiana that they would be transformed through the relationships that are built. Also, pray for the volunteers at Camp Camby, as they develop relationships with these individuals.
Second, serve with Active Grace. Active Grace has a variety of needs, from maintenance and mowing to housekeeping and gardening. There are several ways to be involved with the families at Camp Camby, as well. There is a need for counselors, child care, tutoring, after-school programming, life skills, teaching, and mentoring. No matter where your skill set it, Active Grace can use you. Learn more about volunteer opportunities and sign up!
Third, give to the Active Grace Bucket. Every buck you drop in the bucket is put to work to help households with their current and long-term physical and spiritual needs.
