Blue Ridge Grace Brethren welcomes new pastor
The minute Davey Ermold saw this pastor’s office at Blue Ridge Grace Brethren Church he felt at home.

Ermold, 34, began serving as the new pastor at Blue Ridge Grace Brethren on July 2.
“My prayer for this congregation is to preach the gospel and to find and work with those missions that best serve the people of Winchester,” Ermold said from his new office — the shelves already filling with books.
The church is situated on 10 well-maintained acres off Cedar Creek Grade, just outside the city limits.
