Please complete this online survey by Friday, July 17. Doing so will help us continue to stay connected, stay church, and take care of each other.

Upcoming Events

    Community Events | Hope’s Table

    Hope's Table for All Hungry Neighbors Hope’s Table, the new name of the Saturday Breakfast ministry at Grace, gives away bagged lunches and other donations in front of Grace. Guests need not be homeless to receive a to-go bag from Hope's Table.  You can support Hope's Table in a few ways.  First, most guests are men, making the biggest need for donations: men’s jeans, shorts, and shirts (all sizes, including up to 4X) and men’s shoes (casual, sizes 10-13). Volunteers also give out toiletries, pre-packaged snacks, water, surgical masks, and socks every week so those items are also welcome. Donations may be brought to Grace between 7:45-8:45am on Saturday mornings or email sheriwernsing@gmail.com to make arrangements.  Second, Hope's Table buys boxed meals each week from Standing Room Only (SRO), which allows Hope's Table to support the community. You can donate directly to Hope’s Table via chicagotemple.org and click the 'Donate' button.
