Sherry Tucker is the Pastor of Church of Christ, UCC, Granby.
She writes, “This is a warm and welcoming place to be. I love this church and their enthusiasm for sharing the love of Jesus. People are accepting of others and open to new ideas. I hope anyone who walks through the doors of our church feels like this is a place where they can worship, and know they belong.”
