Construction is almost finished! Help us CROSSOVER!
Build a Community Center. Be the Church!
We aren't building a church; we are building a 7 day a week community center and safe place where families can experience grace EVERY DAY!
Over the next 5 years, the Grace Community SDA Church will bring HOLISTIC TRANSFORMATION to 10,000 families in crisis through the message of God’s grace in the city of Euclid.
We want to especially bring transformation to YOUNG PEOPLE. Why?
- Only 65% of students graduate within 4 years from high school.
- Of those, only 54% go to college within 2 years of graduating.
- Only 19% graduate from college within 4 years (Ohio Dept. of Education, 2016).
- Euclid, Ohio has the 5th highest juvenile delinquency offense rate in the county.
- 60% of children living below the poverty level, leaving many parents unable to afford after-school programs for their children. (U.S. Census, 2015)
Here's another alarming stat: 1 in 5.
That is how many students in the Greater Cleveland area try to take their life every year - 1 in 5.
Why? They are hurting. They're being bullied at school. They feel like no one understands them. They may not have positive role models to speak life into them. They don't know what it feels like to have true love, support, and grace surrounding them.
This is why we activating COUNTDOWN TO COMPLETION.
