During the month of October, Grace Baptist Church of Germantown will celebrate its 125th Anniversary with a series of community events.

Leading the church, during this historic occasion is the Rev. Dr. James H. Buck Jr., who became the institution’s spiritual leader earlier this year. Rev. Buck, along with Frist Lady Jennifer Buck, hopes to enrich the Germantown Community with the legacy Grace Baptist Church of Germantown encompasses.

To that end, he is developing a “Mission Possible” Vision Plan for Grace, which addresses five areas of ministry: Mission, Fellowship, Discipleship, Stewardship and Worship.

The special events for the month-long celebration include:
