Notes for the Journey
As part of our initiative to support and pray for one together during the coronavirus, Grace Connects, we are gathering online at a special blog: Grace Connecting. Please visit and become part of the conversation. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Kim Cockroft.

Welcome to Grace Church's blog!
Here, you'll find diverse content that we hope will enfold you into our community and will deepen your journey. You'll find weekly letters to our families designed to prepare us for Sunday's worship.
