STAFF PARISH RELATIONS COMMITTEE

As you know, Pastor Erick has been appointed full time to Clearview UMC in St Pete, beginning July 1st. His last Sunday here will be June 5th, where he will worship with us and we will get a chance to bless him with a gift as a token of our gratitude for his ministry here at Grace. 


CLICK HERE if you’d like to contribute to that gift. You can also leave donations in the offering baskets at the back of the sanctuary, as well. Thank you for helping us to share our thanks to Pastor Erick.
