GraceWorks Director- Tammy Clinger, with her husband Paul
Hello, my name is Tammy Clinger, and this is my husband, Paul. Paul and I have been foster parents for many years, and we have always had the passion and desire to work with the community and mentor those who were struggling or going through difficult times. God led us to GCCC in 2009 and put the desire of GraceWorks on my heart in 2011. The GraceWorks Ministry offers support to those in our community who are in need of food. We also try to assist with financial counseling and legitimate financial needs, as we are able. It is our desire that all those we come in contact with will experience the love of God as we show compassion and provide for their everyday needs. “Then the world will know that You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me.” John 17:23b God and GCCC have given me this opportunity as GraceWorks Director, and I have been enjoying every moment. God continues to open many doors for the GraceWorks outreach, and I am excited to see where His love will take this ministry.
GraceWorks is also the ministry that sorts all clothing and other donations for our Labor of Love Thrift Store. We have an awesome team of volunteers that serves week after week and helps make GraceWorks a success. Without their loving hearts and dedication, this ministry would not be possible.
GraceWorks is open every Monday from 10am-11am, and also on Wednesdays from 5pm-6pm for those who cannot make it on Mondays. We encourage participants to come once each month on their scheduled week. However, we do try to be flexible if someone cannot make it as scheduled. The schedule is as follows.
A to G – Week 1
H to M – Week 2
N to R – Week 3
S to Z – Week 4
Invitation Only – Week 5
We continue to welcome donations and are very grateful for your help in serving our community. Donations may be dropped off during these hours, or you may arrange another time to drop items off by calling the church at 570-837-5809. Please be sure to call ahead to ensure that someone is available to receive your donations. If you would like to serve in this area or if you are in need of help, please contact me.
