Sunday School @ 10 Worship @ 11
Grace Baptist Church started the lectures series in 2002 to offer the community a concentrated study of scripture that includes current topics, serious inquiry and honest dialogue. Dr. Richard T. Davis, a retired minister and chaplain from Durham, led the first series. In honor of his efforts and commitment to the endeavor, the congregation named the series for him and his wife - the Richard and Barbara Davis Lectures Series.
