Serve Tampa Bay

During this time of change due to COVID-19, we are modifying the way we do some of our outreach ministries. Please click on each ministry to see how you can support outreach at Grace.

Join us at one of our 15+ community projects we host on Serve Saturday! From singing with elderly residents to serving breakfast to the homeless, we have an opportunity for you and your family to serve together.

Soup Kitchen is suspending our regular gathering where we feed our hungry and homeless neighbors. Our core team will continue to distribute grab and go meals, but we are not accepting new volunteers at this time. 

Vintage, Etc. is an upscale thrift store in South Tampa whose mission is to provide affordable, quality merchandise to the community in a loving, Christian environment. Proceeds support the Dream Center and missions at Grace. We’d love to have you join the team!

The Dream Center serves the youth of East Tampa by providing after school care, mentoring, art and music classes, leadership programs and more. Visit our site to learn how you can join the Dream Team!

Visitations to our jail and prison facilities are suspended until further notice. Please pray for inmates, for protection of their health, for comfort and encouragement.

Boys 2 Men is a ministry where children of single mothers are mentored by positive, Christian male role models. On the third Saturday of each month, relationships are built and biblical principles are shared through fun and free experiences. Sign up your child (ages 6-14) or learn how to become a mentor.

We offer respite care on Serve Saturdays for foster families. If you are a foster family or have a heart to serve our foster family community, let us know.

Thirty minutes a week can make a huge difference in a child’s life! We have mentorship teams active at Lanier Elementary and Buchanan Middle School. Come to one of our upcoming Interest Meetings, where you’ll learn more about mentorship and how to get involved. Please register, so we can plan for you! 

Hope Rising Prison Ministry is a local outreach serving currently incarcerated individuals and their families.
Our Mission is to Initiate Hope, Awaken Purpose, and Restore Families.

We have opportunities to serve inside and outside of the prison, such as leading Sunday worship services, Mentoring Inmates, Facilitating Classes, Leading a Small Group, Children of Inmate Events, and Letter Writing.
