Today, 135 years later, the Grace Baptist congregation has 138 active members and approaches 200 worshippers in its Sunday morning worship services.

A very special children’s program is planned for this service with “Handi The Clown” and his assistant, “Strawberry” so bring the children early and get them situated for lots of fun in Jesus.
