Faith in Action Sunday of Grace Point Church (GPC) encourages its members to serve at a designated fundraiser in lieu of worship service one Sunday per year. This year’s event will raise funds to benefit Love146, an international organization that fights child exploitation and trafficking. Marjolein Grootenhuis, missions director at GPC, says, “It creates community when people come together around a common goal. We want to encourage people to be instruments of change.”
