Fish Fry


Our annual Fish Fry held each October has been a tremendous blessing to not only everyone at Grace, but to the beneficiaries. In 2014, our proceeds went to benefit our own in Ray Rivers as he rehabilitates after his accident. In 2015, the fish fry benefitted a young lady with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia raised over $30,000. This event has been widely successful, and has received local press notice and our ministry has reached far beyond anything we could have ever imagined. If you know someone who could benefit from this fundraiser for future purposes, please contact the church.
