Mercy Ministry



SHARING GOD'S GRACE

The primary goal of Saving Grace Church's Mercy Ministry is to assist in meeting the practical needs of church members and other regular attenders who are experiencing hardship due to sickness or other difficult life circumstances.


There are many opportunities to serve: construction, plumbing, electrical, painting, auto maintenance, yard care, snow shoveling, moving help, cleaning, transportation, childcare, visiting, and providing meals. To become a Mercy Ministry volunteer, sign up here.


We all have periods in our life when we need extra support. If you have a need that might be met through this ministry, please contact the church office at (724) 349-7940 or feel free to let one of our Mercy Ministry Team members know.
