Grace Weekly - Serve

Donate School Supplies

It’s Back to School time! Please stop by the Back to School table in the Connection Center on Sunday August 7 and August 14 to hear about Back to School serving opportunities

Donate School Supplies and Backpacks-now through August 14

Help Grace and Friends of Westchase love our neighboring students and teachers this fall by donating school supplies and/or backpacks. You can conveniently purchase HERE or at the Back to School table on Sundays for $20 each and then join us after worship on August 14 as we Stuff A Bus with supplies, uniforms and shoes for our partnering schools.

Stuff a Bus - Sunday, August 14 

Immediately following worship before the equipping hour we will "Stuff a Bus" with school supplies, uniforms and shoes for our neighboring partner elementary and middle schools. There will be music, popsicles and an assembly line from the Welcome Center to the Plaza to the parking lot where an empty bus will be waiting for our Grace family to fill it up with back to school blessings. 

Immunization Fair and Prayer Walk - August 17 

Join us at Walnut Bend Elementary to help with our annual Immunization Fair. During this event, we will distribute school supplies to families in the community and spend time praying for the students in Westchase. Meet at 8 a.m. at Walnut Bend Elementary. Please RSVP to Kristy Elmore.

Bless A Teacher - August 

Teachers loved being connected with a prayer partner last year! This year, we hope to do even more to support and bless the teachers at Emerson Elementary, Walnut Bend Elementary and Paul Revere Middle School. Please consider signing up to be a prayer partner - we will gather after equipping hour quarterly to do something fun and special to bless the teachers this year (ie, snack bags, school supplies surprises, etc.) Sign up at the Back to School Table on Sundays July 24-August 14th or email Kristy Elmore for more information.

Feast for Firefighters - Station 69

Please join us - invite your Sunday School class, Bible Study, Disciple Group, friends or family to bless the firefighters at Station 69 (right across the beltway from Grace) with a feast! A thoughtful meal - homemade or from a restaurant (many will offer a discount for first responders) to share with the 11 firefighters who are stationed there! 

We hope to bless them, show our support and love at least once per month, so thank you in advance for your efforts. If you have questions or need another date please contact Kristy Elmore,

Hurricane Disaster Plan

Believe it or not hurricane season officially began on June 1. With that in mind, the Serve Strategy team has been working hard to develop a Disaster Response Plan for Grace Presbyterian Church should our area be hit by a disaster. This plan is effective June 1. Please familiarize yourself with the procedure and the steps you can take if you are impacted by a disaster OR if you can help serve.

Food Donations for WHAM


WHAM continues to need our help filling their food pantry. We will be collecting all types of mac n’ cheese, soup and pasta for WHAM (West Houston Assistance Ministries). Bring your donations and drop them off in the WHAM donation bins at the Connection Center during normal church office hours or on Sunday. For more information, please contact Becky Ghazi.

Calling All Cookie Bakers!

Volunteer bakers, we need you! Can you make three dozen homemade cookies for Sunday mornings? We will supply the individual cookie bags for you to place your cookies in. These bags will be available for you to pick up at the Welcome Center Receptionist Desk. Once you have baked your cookies and placed them in the individual bags, you just bring them to the Coffee Bar before you go to Worship. There is not a sweeter and warmer welcome than a homemade cookie. Sign up HERE. Thank you for the tasty treats!
