Free, Monthly Community Lunch

Wood Ministry

The Grace Church Woodchucks are a critical ministry of Grace Church during the cold winter months here in Fauquier County, VA. There are folks who live out in the especially rural areas of the county who depend on wood to heat their homes. The Woodchucks cut, split, load and deliver firewood to those in need. The Wood Ministry is a multi-denominational effort with several other churches in the region.

Giving Tree Program - Grace Episcopal Church - The Plains, VA

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is one of our longest-running Outreach ministries, now in its 18th year. Parishioners select paper cranes from the Christmas tree in the Parish Hall and purchase gifts for the individuals named on the cranes. The gifts are brought to church, wrapped, and delivered before Christmas. Recipients include nursing home residents, adults and children in shelters, and other Fauquier County families.

Backpack Drive at Grace Church, The Plains, VA

Backpack Drive

Each fall Grace Church takes part in the Fauquier F.I.S.H. (For Immediate Sympathetic Help) Backpack Collection, providing backpacks filled with school supplies. Fauquier FISH distributes hundreds of these backpacks to needy children in the area each year, just before school starts.

Second-Hand Graces

Each month the church collects specific items to give through the Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition (though we collect not just food, but many different types of items, including clothes, household items, toiletries, etc.). Distribution is on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 8:00 a.m. – 11 a.m. at the Warrenton United Methodist Church.
