  • Temporary Directory of Names

    Have you ever wanted to contact someone whom you met at church but did not have his or her phone number, address, or email?  We have had many changes in addresses and families attending worship since our last directory!

    We would like to make a simple printed list of names and contact information for people currently attending Carbondale Grace UMC.  The lists would be available at church for you to take home and use.

    If you would NOT want your address, phone number, or email address printed, please contact the church office or leave a message (618 457 8785) and let us know.  We will plan to print the listings in October.

    Also, if your address, email address, or phone number has changed this year, please notify us by phone or email (carbondalegraceinfo@ gmail.com).  Thank you!
