 Book title: Ecology of a Cracker Childhood Childhood
 Author: Jannisse Ray

Message from Missy Moxley as of  3/22/21
Ecology of a Cracker Childhood" by Janisse Ray. We are reading up to page 98. It is the story of the author who grew up in a junk yard along Highway 1 in the South. The book tells how a childhood spent in rural isolation grew into  a passion to save the almost vanished long leaf pine ecosystem. The book comes alive with richly colorful characters told from the viewpoint of a child raised in a fundamentalist religion. 
The book club is open everyone!  We meet on Zoom at 7pm each Wednesday, links on website and fb page as well as on newsletter and bulletin blasts.



Join us if you would like to socialize, stretch your mind, or just leave the daily grind of life behind for a bit!

Community News and Assistance

Many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help them maintain their independence and quality of life. So we created a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and assisted living options that are available in their area.

San Mar Family and

Community Services

Recently we heard in worship from San Mar Family and Community Services, about ways we can help make a difference in the life of a foster child.  They are in particular need of gift cards for gifts on birthdays and holidays.  Rather than collect individual gift cards, we are asking that you donate to Grace Church and earmark your gift for "gift cards".   We will use the money to purchase gift cards and deliver them to San Mar for the children in need.

Many thanks for your help in helping an area child in need! 
Any questions, please reach out to Pastor Rob at or our Missions Chair, Mike Davies at

Dear Congregation,
At the risk of being indelicate, I’m going to talk money.  Last year we did significant work at closing the budget gap. PLEASE remember your giving to the church during this time!  While we are not legally or safely allowed to be together during this time, the bills are still needing to be paid.  And the crashing markets of recent are going to hit our endowments very hard as well.  I’m just being honest.  PLEASE try to be a faithful to your tithe as you can be.  There will be a letter mailed to every home with a stamped envelope to help make your tithe easier!  You can also use the GIVING tab on our church website at and give via VANCO Giving Plus or PayPal.  ~  Pastor Rob+
