More victims of Grace for our Wall of Remembrance:
See WOW and the Uprights (Nov. 22, 2011), my first post about the troubles at Grace. In that post, "Woman of the Word (WOW)" is Rita Wignall.
Alan and Rita Wignall
Attended GBC since 1974.
Rita led Women’s Bible study for 25 years. Taught 2 years of kindergarten, 3 years of 5th grade in Sunday School. Served as a deacon for 30 years, belonged to the Women Action team for 6 years, served as a coordinator for the women’s Bible study for 5 years. Attended Agape Sunday School class for 36 years.
For Rita and Alan's story, read WOW and the Gestapo (Dec. 6, 2011) and Glimpsing Grace (Dec. 7, 2011). Rita was offered a choice: leave the church or face "severe church discipline." She and Alan chose to leave.
