Pancake Breakfast

Grace GLOW 01.JPG

We invite all members of our community to join in sharing God’s abundance at the table each Sunday morning, 7:30-8:30 am. Grace volunteers serve the breakfast on the first Sunday of every month; all are welcome to help! Lutheran, Presbyterian, Episcopal, and United Church of Christ congregations from around the valley serve the breakfast the other Sundays of the month. Leaders from other congregations, both Lutheran and non-Lutheran, Christian and congregations from other religious backgrounds may contact the office if they have questions about serving at the pancake breakfast.

GLOW (Grace Lutheran On Wednesdays)

On most Wednesday evenings during the academic year, volunteers from Grace and the community, who are led by our GLOW Cooks, prepare a great meal that begins at 5:30 pm with Bible study or civil dialogue following. The Bible study/civil dialogue portion of GLOW includes music, community prayer, and large-group study/dialogue. If you would like to help serve, just show up at 5:00 pm on Wednesdays!

Grace Room

On Monday mornings at 9:00 am, the Grace Room opens for members of our community in need of clothing, blankets, and hygiene supplies. If you would like to donate items for the Grace Room, you may bring them to the church office during office hours. The Grace Room is primarily coordinated by volunteers from Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Sun City West.  If you would like to volunteer in the Grace Room, please contact Pastor Sarah.

We are always in need of donations to the Grace Room!  We need...

  • Small-Size Hygiene Products: toothpaste, deoderant, shampoo, conditioner, hand sanitizer, body powder, lotion
  • Other Hygiene Products: razors, toothbrushes, combs, chapstick, women's hygiene products
  • Other Items: large containers of dry laundry soap, NEW men's & women's underwear, men's & women's socks, gently used shoes, belts, casual clothing, backpacks, blankets, towels, washclothes

THANK YOU for your support of this ministry!

Heat Respite

Each summer (June, July, and August), we offer heat respite in Hope Hall. This is a chance for our community members who live on the street to find respite from the nailing heat of Phoenix summer. We need many busy hands and open hearts to do this ministry.  In 2015, the dates for heat respite were June 15-August 28.  Hope Hall was open Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-5:00.

During heat respite, we need sack lunches, funding for air conditioning, bottled water, services that people can provide like teaching yoga or giving haircuts, volunteers to help staff heat respite, and many other things. Visit our donations page for more information.
