Galatians 2:10, All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.
In 2003 the River of Grace launched a fundraising campaign in order to help raise money for amputees in Shandong Province it was during this time that we saw the potential of the church to change the lives of the poor and needy around the world. Since then we have been involved in various projects around the world helping feed orphans, supporting schools, and building dorms and responding to disasters. As a core value of our church we believe God has called us to help bring relief through the love of Christ through aid and relief projects around the globe.
Please see the links for projects the River of Grace is involved in:
