SCAM EMAIL ALERT
Some members of our congregation have recently received emails supposedly from our pastors requesting for help, in particular for financial contributions in some form. These are fraud emails. We urge members to exercise discernment. One way is to look at the email addresses - our staff addresses have a <gracebaptistchurch.sg> suffixes. Also, please do not hesitate to call the church office to verify when in doubt.
