We are excited to make this special announcement! As of this Easter Sunday, April 24, "By His Grace" will be leading the Praise & Worship Ministry at Green Ridge Church of God of Prophecy in Ridgetop, TN. Pastor Richard Lovvorn contacted us a few weeks ago and asked us to pray about this. A couple of different opportunities arose over the last few weeks but God has led us to Green Ridge. If you live in the area come out and join us this Easter Sunday as we celebrate a risen Savior and new opportunity to serve Him! The church address: 1936 Greer Rd (Hwy 257) west of Hwy 41 S in Ridgetop. They moved to their new location last year from Greenbrier. God blessed them with a new location complete with a beautiful sanctuary and fellowship building there. Expecting a mighty move of God at Green Ridge!

*Going Home Celebration, Thursday, Oct. 27 @ 1 PM*
Nettie Evohn Rye went home with the Lord on Monday, Oct. 24 shortly after 4 PM. It is amazing how God can intervene and take a saint home. She passed peacefully with family at her side. The power of God was all around and the Holy Ghost was upon each one! Truly angels welcomed her with open arms as Jesus took her hand! You could actually see the peace of God flow over her and into those in the room with her. We praise God for her life and legacy left behind. It will be a time of saddness, for the flesh doesn't want to let them go but just to think that she is now home with our Lord, the ultimate healing achieved! Glory to our Lord! The "Going Home Celebration" arrangements will be Thursday, Oct. 27 @ 1 PM at Sykes Funeral Home, 424 Franklin Street, Clarksville, TN. Visitation on Wed., Oct 26, 4 - 8 and Thursday, 11 - 1. Praise God, another saint has made it home!
Bro. Sammy Rye's mother, Sis. Nettie Evohn Rye is in Gateway Medical Hospital in Clarksville, TN. She is in critical condition and the family needs our prayers! She has pneumonia in both lungs and was put on a respirator yesterday. God bless you!
It has been an exciting time as a national evangelistic ministry. As we all know God does move and direct us down different paths. After much prayer and seeking His will; "By His Grace" is now being led into a more localized ministry. We want to thank everyone that has supported us and we are excited about this new path God has chosen for us. It has been a wonderful and challenging time over the years. We praise God for the souls saved, healings and etc! He is an awesome God! "By His Grace" is still a full time ministry reaching souls one at a time for Christ. Keep us in your prayers! You are in our prayers! We love you and God bless you! Keep in touch, who knows what God has planned later on down the road!
"By His Grace" is now available for weekend revivals, concerts and special events locally. Please contact us to schedule any weekend events @ 931-553-8301. God bless you!
