1. What is this paper going to be about? My inquiry project will be about the cultural background of the individuals who built Grace Lower Stone Church. I will talk about how particular social, economical, and religious movements affected the backcountry at the time. Also, I will focus on how the church handled financial disagreements and obstacles during the time of construction. Another major point in my essay will be how the American Revolution affected the area of Rowan County and more specifically the early congregation of Grace Lower Stone Church. 2. What is this paper really about? The true meaning behind this paper is the faith and heritage behind the development of Grace Lower Stone Church. Currently the congregation is searching for a new minister, so I believe it is important to return to our roots to reconnect with why and how the church became what it is today. Grace Lower Stone is rich in history that is often forgotten in the modern day but the bylaws and statement of faith established by our founding fathers must be remembered in this critical juncture in time for our place of worship. 3. What is the single most important thing I have come to understand about my topic? The most important aspect I have learned about my topic is that we were never a part of the Lutheran faith or the Organ Church congregation. Through an interview with Aaron Kepley I discovered that Grace Lower Stone and Organ Church shared a mutual meeting house called the Hickory Church where both congregations would alternate Sundays for worship.
