CONNECT SUNDAY
Oct 4 | 8:00AM – 2:00PM | Contact: Groups
Grace Chapel has always had a high value for being in a smaller community within the larger community of Grace Chapel; places to connect with people, be encouraged and challenged in our faith, receive support, and enjoy life in the fellowship of others. Many of us have felt the need for this more than ever in these last months. Connect Sunday is a chance to find the people and places we can build our smaller community within the whole. There will be various offerings this fall, so watch for more details and tune in to church online October 4th to hear more.
