IV.
Website Update.
Please do not use the old website still connected to the main Grace Church Site, it is now more out of date than before.
A New Website has been prepared and has been ready to be used for about a month, but due to IT problems with the Church Web Host we have been delayed in linking the site to the church site. Additionally during this process we cannot update the new site, so now the information there is already over a week old and we update daily, so until we can get access to update, please be careful with the information. Standard long term info will be ok, short time info, if you are not sure, check with PA. I’m sorry for this. Everyone on the church team is doing all they can to speed up the process, but the cyber battle is still raging. It’s a great site and very flexible, it’s going to be fun exploiting all it can do for us, but at the moment it is in limbo.

User name and password will remain the same for the choir family area. All you do is click login and use this information to gain access.
User name: helfenstein
Password: iheartch0ir (0 is a zero not a letter)

I will send out an announcement when the new site is up and current.
Have a brilliant day, Patrick
