July 17 Update

Dear Grace Members & Friends:

This week we witnessed another tornado in Barrie that caused damage and distress for our city. Thankfully, no one was killed, but several were injured, and many were frightened as they directly experienced the storm and suffered significant damage to their homes.

Grace families were affected. Please keep the Arnott and Stockley families in your prayers as family members recover and rebuild from this traumatizing event.

Our Grace Outreach Team has asked for information on anyone who needs help through this time. Please let us know if you are aware of such a need. As we remember a past Barrie tornado that caused havoc in so many lives, we offer our prayers and support for those who are suffering.

Rev. Susan & Dr. John
