Saturday, March 30
MARTINS?FERRY -The Holy Grounds Cafe will be closed tonight but will instead open up on Saturday, March 30, from 13 p.m. for a very special event.
Rev. Bill Webster, pastor at Grace Church (which oversees the coffeehouse), has published a book called A Place of Grace: A Resurrected Church's Journey to Vitality. The book chronicles Grace Church's growth over the past twenty-five years and is full of colorful stories and interesting anecdotes about our community and its families.
Guest musicians Brady Fulton and David Buckingham will provide live music, and snacks and beverages will be available for donation. Multiple copies of A Place of Grace will be on hand for purchase. Best of all, Rev. Bill will be set up at a table with pen in hand, ready to autograph your new book.
Holy Grounds Cafe is run by husband and wife team David and Lisa Buckingham as a ministry of Grace Church.
Lisa Buckingham notes, "We are so proud to celebrate Rev. Bill's work. It will be a great afternoon party and we hope that the entire community will join in the celebration!"
Holy Grounds Cafe is located at 410 Hanover Street in Martins Ferry. Questions can be directed to Lisa Buckingham at 740-633-2699 or find them on facebook at Holy Grounds Cafe
