The Bible teaches us: Forget yourself long enough to give others a helping hand. Grace Lutheran invites you to join us in reaching out to the community in Christian love.
Grace members have reached and will continue to reach out to our communities here on Holiday Island, in Eureka Springs, and through the surrounding area in many ways through church-sponsored endeavors, both ongoing as well as single events; through donations, and through individual volunteering to local charities. Here are some ways in which you can join us in being a servant to those in need in our communities. If you want more information please see Pastor.

Be a member of the Senior Center “Meals on Wheels” delivery team. Grace is part of the Carroll County delivery of lunch-time meals to senior citizens from Berryville to Holiday Island.
Flint Street Food Pantry
Work with the Flint Street Food Pantry. Grace has been a long-time active supporter of our local food pantry and that work continues today. Grace members volunteer in a number of ways:

- Making monetary donations, both individually and from the church

What a joy it is to Forget Ourselves!
As we work together and continue to identify opportunities to serve others, let us remember what a blessing the Lord has given us to be able to follow in HIS footsteps by loving and serving HIS people. Come join us!
