Operation Enduring Support was founded in February 2003 by members of Grace Methodist Church of Decatur.  The volunteers are from Grace, Decatur, and surrounding communities. OES  sends care packages to our deployed military for Easter and Christmas.

We meet every Monday evening at 6:00 pm until packing day which is usually 3 weeks prior to the holiday. Volunteers meet the last week of January for the Easter packages, and the last week of September for the Christmas packages to be packed. 

Volunteer donations of both goods and money from our community fund this operation. Click here for a list of items that can be donated.

Volunteers are not just members from Grace but also people from the community. We would love to have you join us. If you are interested in volunteering call 217-429-5374 for more information.
If you have a deployed military person you would like to receive a care package contact the church office
at 217-429-5374 with the name and address to ship the package to.
