 GRACE CHAPEL BYLAWS 

Audited Financials for 2018

The Grace Chapel Audit Committee is pleased to share the results of this year’s audit with the congregation.

We engaged the accounting firm of Capin Crouse LLP, which specializes in non-profit organizations --particularly churches. After conducting their full audit and review, they found that the Grace Chapel financial statements accurately reflect the financial position of the church in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Using the Capin Crouse benchmark data of similar church organizations, they further represented that the financial position of the church is strong and healthy.

We would like to thank Bill Burke, Chris Guerriero and the rest of their team for their support of the audit and their high quality work in managing our finances for the betterment of the Kingdom.
