Abundant Life is the "canned meat church" for GRACE, a nonprofit relief agency that provides food, clothing, financial assistant and other vital necessities to people in Grapevine and surrounding communities who are struggling with a limited income or recent emergency. Each week, our members bring canned meats such as SPAM, Vienna sausages, tuna and canned chicken to our GRACE donation station that help keep GRACE's Food Pantry stocked. We also participate in special events with GRACE as well as volunteering to serve.
