Monday Evening Homeless & Senior Outreach San Diego
Each first Monday of the month we travel to the Salvation Army Facility in downtown San Diego with Friends & Family Community Connection (a local non-profit). We spend with homeless guests in one part of the facility, and with senior citizens living in low income housing in another. We serve dinner, socialize and seek to be a blessing to both groups. We meet at Grace at 4:30pm, leave by 4:45pm and return between 7:30-8:30pm. Also please consider donations of clothes, shoes socks, blankets, sleeping bags, and hygiene supplies. These can be dropped off at the church or school offices, or bring them with you as you join us.
This is a powerful opportunity to share God’s blessing with others. Please consider joining us! Contact Pastor Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesday Evening Homeless Outreach Escondido
Join us on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm as we serve dinner and enjoy time with our homeless guests at the Haven House shelter of North County Interfaith in Escondido, located at 550 West Washington. We have an established team of volunteers that are currently committed to this awesome opportunity and would love to have you join them whether it’s on a full time or one time basis! This is also a great opportunity for a life (small) group or families to provide a meal through this ministry. Also please consider donations of clothes, shoes socks, blankets, sleeping bags, and hygiene supplies. These can be dropped off at the church or school offices, or bring them with you as you join us.
These events are a powerful way to love on people in the fellowship provided by Jesus. Please consider joining us!

Grace Christian School Homeless Outreach
The Grace Christian School Middle School homeless outreach elective class would appreciate donations of shoes, (new) socks, blankets and toiletries. These will be distributed to the Homeless in Escondido and downtown San Diego through Grace’s outreach in both locations. The Grace Christian Middle School homeless outreach elective class is made up of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who are learning to serve the Lord through the care of others. Drop off bins are located in the school and church offices and the welcome center of the church building.
Outreach to Veterans & Families
Grace is currently working with North County Interfaith to outreach to the people that they are working with. We have been given opportunities to spend time with homeless, veterans and families.
Our outreach to the veterans has developed into a very popular bingo game get together. One Sunday a month we join the vets for bingo, pizza, and refreshments. This is an awesome opportunity to build some relationships with some wonderful people who have served our county. Look for upcoming dates in the Graceline church bulletin.
We are also seeking opportunities to work with families who live in Interfaith’s transitional housing complex in Escondido. These families are working to become self-sufficient and then move on to their own homes. We are looking to developing relationships with them. Look for opportunities to come.
