The churches of New Canaan are a big part of what gives this town its character, its identity, its heritage, its hope and its future. God’s Acre may be our single most identifiable landmark. To that end, I am writing to you about Grace Farms, which is the home of Grace Community Church. I am a board member of Grace Farms Foundation and president of the planning team for Grace Community Church. Grace Community Church started 15 years ago here in New Canaan. In fact, it was our own backyard that held the first church service. It says a lot about New Canaan that a grassroots movement like this can start in such modest ways and soon grow to a following of over 700 folks.
