A grace note is a music notation used to signify a particular musical ornamentation. This note does not change the melody, but offers an additional interpretative highlight to a melodic line. It calls our attention to a particular note and invites us to hear an ordinary sound in an extraordinary way.
With similar intention, the CBFNC Wealth and Poverty Committee has established an annual recognition program to highlight churches, ministries, clergy, laypersons, and missionaries connected to CBFNC who embody Christ through their work in issues of wealth and poverty. Each year at the CBFNC General Assembly, a church or organization, an individual (adult, youth or child) and a CBFNC Hunger Fund Recipient will be recognized with a Grace Note. While a Grace Note is not an award, it is an opportunity to highlight both the ordinary and extraordinary work happening in our communities in such a way that we can all learn and grow. We hope that these Grace Notes will inspire and encourage us to serve others in empowering and dignifying ways.
