Greetings from Grace Gate Staff, Volunteers and Board of Directors

We are so grateful for each of you and your contributions to Grace Gate.   We all have something in abundance to share, whether it is time, money, relationships or a special talent.  When we each offer what we have in abundance to use together with the gifts of others, we are living the parable of the mustard seed.  We make a powerful impact—emotionally, spiritually and financially—to those in need.

Your gifts impact the lives of people beyond what can be seen or measured.  People who come to Grace Gate are often without hope and have severe health issues.  These people are renewed by our compassionate staff, our knwoledgeable group of medical personnel, and the power of prayer—all made possible because of YOU!

YOU are the difference between hurting and healing for the persons who come to Grace Gate.  We are grateful for your help and invite you to continue your partnership with this ministry through your gifts of prayer, time and money.

Please consider making a gift to Grace Gate this year.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”  (1 Peter 4:10)
