Reflection on a Dedication

On Sunday, February 26, 2017, The Dedication of our New and Renewed Church Home was celebrated at Grace.

First, we had a celebration that included many members of Grace…

Because of you, that project didn’t get done; Because of…

On June 19, 2016 we packed up our administration space and sanctuary for a summer vacation; it was our last service in the current sanctuary before the start of renovations. Church services…
