Hey folks, I want to encourage you to listen to a song we’re introducing this Sunday at Grace Church of Alexandria. Many of you may be familiar with it already. It’s called Psalm 62, also know as O Praise Him, by Stuart Townend (of In Christ Alone fame) and Aaron Keyes.

There are several links below to listen or purchase, as well as one to purchase your own sheet music should you read music or want to play it at home.

Purchase sheet music on PraiseCharts or LifeWay.

Looking forward to singing this with you!

~ Pastor of Worship Garrett Lee

Backpacks

Here’s a final update and word of thanks about the project to gather backpacks and school supplies for children in need who attend Samuel W. Tucker Elementary School.

I just wanted to take a minute and express my gratitude towards everyone who supported this effort.  Whether you supported us through donation and/or prayer, it is because of your efforts that I am able to say that we were able to fill 24 backpacks with extra supplies to donate.

 The backpacks are filled with at least one of every item that was on the supply list, as well as a small gospel tract and information card about Grace Church of Alexandria.  These backpacks and supplies will go straight to kids in our community in need attending school at Samuel W. Tucker Elementary.  

We will directly touch well over 24 students, but through your actions and love, we will touch countless families, teachers, and staff at Samuel Tucker.  So, thank you, thank you for your participation and support.  I pray we will be able to do this again next year.
