Project Grace

Who we are:  Project G.R.A.C.E is a ministry of Houghton Wesleyan Church. We are non profit and meet once a month to discuss the known needs of our local communities and try to find ways to help.

About: Project G.R.A.C.E is an idea that was developed through our missions committee, Partners at Home. With needs continuing to grow in our communities, we are hoping to help in whatever way we are able to. Project Grace stands for Giving, Restoring, Advocating, Caring and Engaging. We receive requests through email at projectgrace@hwchurch.org, by phone at 585-567-2264 or by letter:
