Grapeland Little White Church Concert Monday

By Greg Ritchie

Messenger Reporter

GRAPELAND – First Christian Memorial Church, known as Grapeland’s “Little White Church,” will hold a musical program Monday, June 10 at 6:30 p.m. to help the group raise funds for the historical church’s upkeep and to install a restroom for the handicapped. 

The church was built in 1895 and was moved to its present location in 1915. 

The free event will have light refreshments and donations are encouraged, as expenses to build the new facility and to keep the building in good shape are always rising. Glenda Christ told The Messenger the church was not immune from the recent storms, either, having to cut down several trees which were threatening to cause damage to the structure. 

It will be a packed program of local talents of all ages, with several different styles of music to enjoy.
