Living Faith

“For we are … created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

– Ephesians 2:6-10

Our living faith teaches us that we are Christ’s hands and feet in the world, called to love and serve our neighbors.

We love and serve those in need within our congregation, in our Rock Hill community, and in our global community.

Unsure of your spiritual gifts?

As part of our faithful stewardship of the gifts we receive from God, we provide financial support to service agencies in our community and around the world.

How We Give

To support our living faith on a national and global scale, Grace tithes to the SC Synod. Through the Synod, we also give to the ELCA. These gifts support ministries beyond our congregation by enabling the ELCA to begin new ministries and grow existing congregations. These funds also provide the staff and resources for the development of new leaders, partnership with churches around the globe, alleviating poverty, working for justice and peace, and more.

Through the SC Synod, the congregation financially supports Lutheran Homes of South Carolina, Newberry College, Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Lutheran Conference and Retreat Centers, Campus Ministry at colleges across the state and Lutheran Services Carolinas whose programs improve the lives of many vulnerable populations facing extraordinary life challenges including foster care, natural disasters, refugee resettlement, veteran homelessness and persistent mental illness.
