  Missions & Evangelism  

"Making Jesus Known Around the World"

At Ripon Grace we are committed to making disciples of all men. We do this through Evangelism, Discipleship groups and Missions here at home and across the world. We invite you to be a part of our Lord's work of reaching people with the Gospel and helping them grow in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Local Missions: 
  • Making Christ Known in Ripon is as urgent as evangelism around the world. Our desire is to encourage our local community through serving our community through a variety of ministries (ie. Main Street Days, Almond Blossom Festival, etc.).
  • Modesto Gospel Mission In addition to monthly support, we participate in leading monthly worship on Thursday evenings. Contact the Church Office to help.
  • Modesto Pregnancy Center We sponsor a Baby Bottle fund raising campaign twice yearly.
  • AWANA Missionary  - Children matter to God and we seek to show Christ's love through our Awana program and supporting a local Awana Missionary.

Missions Projects:

In addition to supporting missionaries in our country and across the world, we also support and participate in missions projects throughout the world. Through Blocklayers Ministries International (BMI), Ripon Grace members have given to financially and/or supplied teams for the construction of churches and Bible Institutes in Argentina, Brazil, Cambodia, Philippines and Mexico (to train indigenous pastors and evangelists). For more information contact a member of the Missions Commission.

We have supported and continue to support youth and adults on short term missions to many parts of the world including Russia, Mexico City, Brazil, Philippines, China, Canada and Cambodia.

An annual golf tournament is held as a fund raiser for church planting world wide. If you desire to help with this tournament contact the
Church Office.

We invite you to participate with us in taking the Good News to all men and helping them to grow in Christ by giving to and/or participating with us in these ministries. Please talk to one

or a member of the Missions Commission to become involved.
