The merge has been affirmed! 

The congregation of GCC reached consensus at our August 28th meeting. Canvas Church received 94% in favor of the merge. The two churches will meet as one on September 18th at 10 AM as

CANVAS COMMUNITY CHURCH!

Better together!

On July 10th the Governance Board of Grace Community Church recommended a merger with Canvas Church of Winchester. The Board believes that the resources and strengths of GCC and Canvas complement each other in such a way that, when combined, will empower them to make a substantial Kingdom impact in the Winchester, Virginia area. The next two months will be used to address congregational concerns, spend time with each other, and pray for God’s wisdom and direction in this endeavor. Please join us in prayer as we move toward a decision. Both churches will announce their decisions on September 4th!
