Ever heard of Love INC? Have any ideas what they do? Did you know that Grace Baptist is part of Love INC Newberg?
Love INC is a Christian organization right here in Newberg serving the surrounding community along with 154 churches since 2004. Love INC strives to fill gaps in services and resources by helping local churches develop ministries that meet tangible needs in our area without duplication. The opportunity to help are many, you can help in the office, or with a special event or putting together a hygiene kit to be passed out.
We partner with Love Inc, of Newberg as a GAP Ministry providing Personal Care Kits through the shower ministry at River Street Church of God, the drop in center at 2nd Street Community Church and the Love Inc clearinghouse in Newberg. Grace members bring in needed items, a team assembles kits and they are taken to where they are needed, shelter, showers and Love INC’s clearing house. We assemble and distribute approx. 100 kits a month. Want to help? You can donate travel size, shampoo, conditioners, soaps, lotions and toothpaste, individually wrapped toothbrushes, combs, and disposable razors. Just place them in the barrel in the lobby just outside the sanctuary.
