Laura Laws - Staff

Laura Laws has been on staff here at Grace Church for more than 28 years, and a member of Grace since 1986. During that time, she has mostly served as assistant to our Senior Pastor, as well as church bookkeeper. Along the way she has taken on many other duties as needed. Laura was born, and grew up, in High Point. About a year after college, she spent 2.5 years in Israel and 2 years in Kenya.  Missions and a love for other cultures were well planted in her heart during those years and, amazingly, they have also served as excellent preparation for her job here at Grace. Laura has one sister, one brother, and 2 nieces - plus her 90-something mother - all of whom she loves dearly.
