Grand Blanc UMC-

A Wayne C. Barrett Steward Leader Award Recipient

Grand Blanc United Methodist Church is a faith community that embodies love, hope, and grace to enrich the lives of all.

One of their weekly initiatives is to provide free community dinners, which serve around 70-100 people, out of which half do not have any affiliation with the church. The church’s commitment to building a strong community is evident in their efforts to provide outreach services to those in need, and they strive to make a difference in people’s lives by serving them with love and compassion.

The church continually links generosity and gratitude, which is reflected in their vision for the future. They believe in promoting a vision that invites extravagant generosity, and their focus is on building relationships so that they can build the Kingdom.

Jeff Regan, Sr. Director of Stewardship for the Foundation, presented the church with a check for $2500.00. Congratulations to All!
