“Then they will ask, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger? When did we see You without clothes or sick or in prison and did not care for You?’ Then He will say to them, ‘For sure, I tell you, because you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’

NORWESCAP: Backpack Program
"The Backpack Program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends and school holidays. The program is being offered during the school year to students identified as being food-insecure."
Our community at Simply Grace supports this mission by bringing food donations quarterly from our donation shelves in the back of the church. For more information on the Backpack Program visit their website.
In 2017 a team from Simply Grace traveled to Honduras to spend a special week in ministry with some families in Honduras. We were blessed by gracious hospitality and friendship. The pandemic has affected all the world, and our friends from La Esperanza have suffered too. This year we will be sending a financial gift to support 8 families in purchasing food and necessities for the winter. You may give here on PAYPAL below or mail a check to Simply Grace UMC PO Box 86, Bloomsbury, NJ 08804, mark Honduras for both options. Thanks for your generosity.
