ToolBox Team

Grace Bible Church is pleased to announce the availability of our new Toolbox ministry. This ministry is intended to provide minor home repairs to members of our congregation who are unable to address these issues. Requests for help can be made by sending an email to The homeowner will provide the supplies and a Grace volunteer will provide the labor.

The Toolbox Team scope includes changing light bulbs, replacing furnace filters, fixing minor plumbing leaks, and tightening loose doorknobs. The toolbox team is not intended to replace The Big Event, so tasks such as yard work and painting would not be included in this ministry.
