WELCOME CNU STUDENTS!!!
Grace is so fortunate to be within walking distance of a vibrant university, Christopher Newport.
We welcome all students and young adults to our congregation.
Napali-speaking refugee Children’s Program
The Nepali-speaking refugee children's program, started earlier in the year by a group of CNU students, has met on Sunday afternoons to help the development of the children's reading and writing. These delightful kids learn new vocabulary and the components of good grammar, as well as take some time to have fun! Currently, the group is on break for the summer, but will resume early in the fall (date TBA). Logan Whitley, a CNU student and choir member at Grace, organizes the program and is looking for assistance, come fall. If you are interested in helping, or you just want more information, email him at email@example.com
