Thank You for Serving Alongside Orange County Amazing Grace Ministries!
During the October GAP time, the St. Andrew’s church body served together with Orange County Amazing Grace. We worked on making blankets and scarves, and Family Ministries decorated cards. These cards will go out to the often-forgotten residents of various Orange County nursing homes to offer encouragement and fellowship.
OC Amazing Grace bases their work off of James 1:27, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this; to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” Using this verse, the ministry is empowered by the Holy Spirit to share the good news of God’s Kingdom to those in nursing homes. Approximately sixty percent of nursing home residents receive no outside visitors during the year. OC Amazing Grace visits residents, conducts Bible studies, and holds special events in nursing homes more than forty times a week in order to bring God’s love to our community.
Coming alongside OC Amazing Grace in prayer and service is a wonderful way to be a neighborhood church with a global impact. Pray that we love and minister in the name of Jesus, that the residents would find renewed hope, faith and encouragement for their souls. Pray for those ministering, that they would have compassion and Christ’s love for each person they meet. Thank you to those of you who took the time to serve alongside this ministry. The blankets, scarves, and cards that you created will help demonstrate God’s love to those OC Amazing Grace serves and will offer encouragement to our brothers and sisters in nursing homes.
