Waters of Grace

watersofgraceWaters of Grace is a community of faith and mission development ministry planted in the community of Frazee in 2010 as a result of statistical data revealing a large population of unchurched in this area that was without an ELCA presence. What evolved was the development of a small group of faithfully committed folks enjoying the gift of worship and being Christians in community while simultaneously being on a prayerful journey of discovery and rediscovery toward our missional purpose.

In the last two years, this spiritual journey has led us into the neighborhoods and lives of people within our community who are living in poverty… where we are building relationships and ministering to the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of those God leads us to through presence, compassion, prayer, fellowship opportunities, gifts of support, meals, and sharing the Gospel.
