South Park Inn

One of our major focuses at Grace Church has been in our fellowship with South Park Inn in Hartford. South Park Inn is the only homeless shelter in the city to take in families. It is a place of rest, refuge and transition. We sponsor several dinners at South Park in throughout the year. Parishioners pitch in to shop, prepare and serve the food. Just after Thanksgiving, our church Christmas tree is decorated with peace doves; each with the name of an item needed for Christmas gifts to be given to residents of the South Park Inn.

Windsor Food Pantry

A collection bin is always available outside the church office to receive non-perishable food items for the Windsor Food Pantry. During the Thanksgiving holiday season, our Church School students also collect food to deposit in the collection bin. Volunteers at the Food Pantry distribute the food to needy families in the Hartford area.

Project Santa

Each year Mission and Outreach work with the Town of Windsor Social Services and The Windsor Chamber of Commerce in Project Santa. The program provides toys at Christmas time to needy children in the Windsor community. Grace Church opens its Great Hall for this major undertaking of collecting and distributing donated toys from area businesses. This is a  heartwarming outreach program that allows Grace Church to make a difference to our neighbors in the community.
