Grandview helps with The Lost Sheep Ministry to feed the homeless in Knoxville. Each 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesday evenings. Be prepared to leave the church at 6:00 P.M. The church van is used to transport as many as possible. Anyone who would like to participate in this wonderful ministry is encouraged to attend. You will be blessed!

Check with Dollar Tree and Dollar General as they have been most helpful in the past for many of these items.
For years, Samaritans Purse has delivered shoe box gifts by caring people to children around the world. Pack as many as you like, that’s up to you. In 2016 we surpassed our goal of 325 boxes and packed 368 gift filled shoe boxes! Grandview, you have done it again! This year, in 2017, 432 precious opportunities to share the Gospel were packed! Remember, every shoe box offers an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. For additional information please contact Margaret Loveday.
Collect for the Samaritans Purse Shoe Box Ministry all year around! A room has been set aside especially for your donations to this worthy ministry. Then, in November we will fill the stage with our shoe box gifts and have a time of dedication as we prepare to send them around the world.
