Spring Serve 2022 at Grace Chapel

The month of May is Spring Serve at Grace Chapel! All month long, we'll take part in events that serve the needs of our local communities.

We're partnering with organizations throughout the greater Boston area, from the Town of Lexington to the YMCA in Foxboro as we work to share the love of God for the good of the world.

Check out the projects we'll be supporting throughout the month of May below.

May 7 | Hockomock YMCA & LYNN Ministries

Organized by our friends at the Foxboro campus

We will be dedicating the morning to helping our partners at the Foxboro Hockomock YMCA. We will be working to clean up the camp spaces to get them ready to care for hundreds of children where they will find joy, friendship, and encouragement. Tasks will include landscaping, painting, moving outdoor furniture, and other projects as needed. 

We will also have opportunities to make sandwiches for homeless ministries in Brockton. Through our partners at LYNN Ministries, we will have a small team making and packing lunches at our Foxboro campus which will be delivered to churches serving the homeless in Brockton on Monday morning.
