GIVE US A SIGN
An email from Deacon Kent Boughton of the Grace Baptist Church:
“If you are travelling between Stittsville and Richmond on Huntley Road, Grace Baptist Church is hoping you will notice its brand new sign. It was just installed by GT Signs on Wednesday 9 May. The sign is based on a new logo that the church adopted last August. The sign has a changeable text field for messages on which Scripture or announcements can be displayed. It should look very good at night brightly lit within by banks of LED lights. BE Electric will be hooking it up to power shortly.”
