Movements of Grace

Let's get local!

This quarterly mission focus is on local outreach. As a church we are concentrating on Teen Leadership Foundation, Trellis and Safe Families. Over the course of the next few months there will many different opportunities to be hands on in a local setting.  Wherever you find yourself, you can make a difference in the lives of those around you.

Safe Families

Safe Families is a volunteer movement that gives hope and support to families in distress. Safe Families hosts vulnerable children and creates family-like supports for desperate families through devoted volunteers motivated by faith to keep children safe and to reunite families. Opportunities are available to be a host family or to support host families. Contact Leanne Sheward at leannesheward@gmail.com to be part of the Grace Team.

Teen Leadership Foundation

The Teen Leadership Foundation was founded with a mission to empower foster teens to become better leaders – in their own lives and in their communities. Based in Costa Mesa, TLF serves current and emancipated foster youth ages 13 to 24 throughout Southern California.  Contact Steve Olson at steve@marinerscompanies.com to be part of the Grace Team.

Trellis

God had been connecting His followers together who cared for people experiencing homelessness in Costa Mesa and the Trellis - Homelessness came into being out of a need to work together, collaborate and pool resources in order to be more effective in furthering the Kingdom! Our vision is to unify the churches who provide services to those experiencing homelessness in Costa Mesa and empower them to work together to realize the Kingdom of God for those often seen as the least in our city, while collaborating with the City of Costa Mesa in a manner consistent with our values. Contact Frances Caille at francesodacaille@gmail.com to be part of the Grace Team.
