  • Grace Notes

    Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.
    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit.
    The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting -- we each look for different things in a church.
