Meals on Wheels

The mission of Meals on Wheels is to nourish, enrich, and strengthen the lives of older adults thru daily meal delivery and human connections.

Circle of Welcome

Grace recently began a partnership with Lutheran Services Carolinas and developed a Circle of Welcome, walking with newly arrived refugee families and helping with various aspects of their settlement in Raleigh. This has been a life-giving ministry both for Grace, and our partner family, an Afghan refugee family of 10.
