Partnering with Baptist Convention of New England
After hearing from almost all of King of Grace Church members, we received a strong vote of affirmation to move ahead in forming a gospel partnership with the Baptist Convention of New England. This should be very helpful for us as we help reach New England and the world with the Gospel. We hope our involvement will also help other BCNE churches in their life and mission. Currently, we are waiting on final approval and we will let you know when our partnership becomes official. Thanks for all your input and excellent questions! – Pastor Paul for the Pastoral Team.
Special Guest David England
On Sunday, August 20th, we will be hosting a friend, David England and his family. David will be sharing in our Sunday service and we are very excited to have them. There will be light refreshments served downstairs after service to provide a time of fellowship with the England’s.
