At Grace, we believe that God created each of us to fight for something bigger than ourselves. For a cause. Not to just support a cause, but to be a cause.
The purpose of the [MY]CAUSE campaign is to showcase those in our church who have done just that by partnering with or creating their own organizations to fight for their cause. The causes listed on this page are not necessarily funded or sponsored by Grace Community Church. [MY]CAUSE is simply a way for those at GCC to spread the word about causes they are passionate about.
This ministry founded by Grace attender, Mallory Fundora when she was just 12 years old. Project Yesu has a motto of "Be the Change You Want to See in the World". Mallory has done just that as she has worked to provide food, medicine and education for children in Uganda as well as employment opportunities and mentoring for the adults. Working with organizations on the ground in Uganda, Project Yesu is forming partnerships and creating opportunities for permanent change. She has traveled to Uganda & continues to raise support to help the people of Uganda. Mallory plans to return to Uganda annually to strengthen her relationships, see the effects of her work, meet with existing partnerships and work to establish new partnerships.

Good News Club
The Good News Club is a one-afternoon a week Bible club held in public elementary schools all over the USA. Several clubs exist in Clarksville and the surrounding areas. Grace is sponsoring the Good News Club at Burt Elementary School, each Thursday afternoon during the school year, but we cannot do this club without YOU!

The Food Initiative
The Food Initiative is a farm to table garden program that is growing a lot more than just food. The Food Initiative works with high school students from all over the community from all different types of backgrounds. These students are not only learning about gardening but also learning about serving the community, working with people who are different than themselves, how to communicate effectively, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. The food that is produced through these programs is sold at the local market as well as donated to local organizations to help the hungry. This time of year while the youth are in school, TFI needs volunteers to help plant and ready the garden for the summer. They can use both individual volunteers and community groups. You can also help by telling others the story of TFI and by visiting the their booth at the Downtown Market over the summer. You can visit thefoodinitiative.org and like the The Food Initiative page on Facebook to stay up to date on how you can help!

Often, decades later, they still think about that experience with regret... every day. If you or someone you love is struggling with the pain associated with a past abortion, you don't have to suffer in silence. There is Hope for Healing.
Hope for Healing is an abortion-recovery program offered through Hope Pregnancy Center. Using a powerful Bible study, participants are able to experience true healing and restoration for what often feels like an unforgivable mistake. Group and one-on-one opportunities available for women, as well as men. All inquiries are confidential. Call the Hope Pregnancy Center at 931-645-2273 or email Jennifer at JT.HopeForHealing@gmail.com.
