Serve the Local Community

Grace Friends

Prayer makes a difference! Grace Friends foster relationships between church, GLEE and Newman International Academy. Our Grace people pair up with a GLEE staff member, GLEE family or Newman staff member, serving as their prayer warriors for the year. Prayer needs are communicated through phone, text or email. Once assigned, you will be in contact with your person monthly to ask for prayer requests and check in with them. You may send birthday, holiday or encouragement cards by sending directly to the GLEE office or to the NIAG office. Please keep all correspondence appropriate, positive and confidential, and write ‘Grace Friends’ above the person’s name. Contact: Serena Pace at 817-274-1626, x102;

Academy Every 4th Grader

Academy 4

Grace Lutheran Church partners with this amazing organization, which provides a mentor for every 4th grade student at Newman International at Grace. Mentors are recruited in August and begin mentoring once a month in September. The 2020-2021 school year looks different from past years, as we will meet through Zoom. Mentors will meet together for training, join a large group opening with students, meet with another Mentor/Mentee team for a breakout session and discussion using the Compass Toolkit, and then join the others for a large-group closing. Children will participate in special club activity sessions online during class time. Mentors serve for one school year, receive safety training and a background check. We will need Substitute Mentors, as well!

Arlington Life Shelter

Grace serves the Arlington Life Shelter every fourth Saturday of every month from 5:00p – 7:00 pm. Our church members sign up to provide food, and volunteer to prepare and serve food. Currently, we are only able to drop off food that is being served. Contact: Red and Susan Hoar at

Arlington Charities

Arlington Charities is a ministry that was started with the help of Rev. Dr. David Joeckel. We serve through holding a spot on the board and through food donations that are collected weekly. You can participate by bringing just one item each Sunday. Imagine the impact we will have if each person brings at least one can of food each Sunday! Contact: Church Office at 817-274-1626;
