Gracie’s Celebration Service will be held online only due to the restrictions that have been put into place by our local government. We have set up a place right here (below this paragraph) or on our churches Facebook Page “North Point Baptist Church” for you to be able to join us in a livestream of a celebration of her life. Gracie was one of the most amazing people that we have ever met and we are certainly going to miss her! Her celebration will begin at 2:00 PM. The live stream will begin about 15 minutes prior to the service. Our prayers are that you will join us in celebrating Gracies Life! Below the Live Stream Box is a place for you to be able to leave thoughts and condolences for the family. We encourage you to leave a comment and we will be sure there family have the opportunity to read each one!
