Christine Granda has been the CBA Ministry Assistant for the past 20-plus years (since Oct. 2022).

Chris is married to Dale Granda who retired from Route Sales for Marquis Beverage in Decatur after 30 years. He's been working at South Shores Kroger for 3 years as a bag boy. But I guess he's a "bag man." 

They celebrated 35 years together on June 4th, 2023.

They are the proud parents of seven children and 15 grandchildren. They moved to Macon, Illinois in December 2017 and are enjoying the rural setting and the quiet surroundings.

Chris was born and raised in Arnold, MO, but has lived in Illinois since 1989. She graduated with an Associate's Degree in Word Processing in 1987 and has worked several secretarial jobs and worked at Central United Methodist Church in Decatur for 10 years. 

She enjoys reading, taking walks, yoga, and singing with the Greater Decatur Chorale (for the last 25 years), singing solos wherever requested, and leading the music at Summit Ave. Baptist Church (for the previous 10+ years). She enjoys teaching children and spending time with her family. Some hobbies are sewing, and crocheting when time allows. She is also the Leader of the TOPS 0049 group in Decatur and has attained her KOPS status and kept it for 10+ years.

"God has indeed blessed me," Chris.
