COMMUNITY OUTREACH

PRISON MINISTRY


The mission of Community of Grace's prison ministry is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with incarcerated men in Western New York through one-on-one visitation. Currently we have a team of men who are making monthly visits with inmates at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, NY.


We encourage men to commit to visit monthly for 60-90 minutes at a time. Men should come prepared, ready to pray and encourage with a word of Scripture. We provide resources to help guide your time.


We are cooperating with several other local churches in this ministry

and encourage men from other churches to join us.

COMMUNITY GARDEN


It has been such joy to partner with Imagine Community Gardens to build a garden in our backyard! Our garden gives us the opportunity to beautify our community and get to know and bless our neighbors.


Our first year (2019) was a huge success! Our vegetables grew abundantly (!) and we were able to host two Fire Pit Fridays and three events for the community: Kids' Flower Day, Chef's Day, and Pumpkin Day. 


In addition, we set aside multiple plots of produce to contribute to a local non-profit organization, 'Cooking for Clients with the Family Justice Center.' Through this organization, Dave Nuzzo, a retired chef, used our vegetables to contribute to delicious meals prepared for victims of domestic violence.
