These photo portraits can be used in advertisements, in books and magazines. They do not expire — they can be carried forever. For free.

The following is an invitation for alumni and visitors to share their stories, photos and digital scrapbooks about the legacy of Grace Baptist Church in Chicago. Share your memories and photos of the life and legacy of Grace Baptist Church with www.nytimes.com/gracebaptist, leading up to Sunday’s 125th anniversary.

The news of the church’s 125th anniversary began in January. Over the course of the next month, The New York Times, in partnership with Asbury Press, photographed five of the women who have over the past 125 years shaped the church, families and community, what went into the church and whether the church can remain vital.

But Grace Baptist is more than a church. It’s a family, with a unique bond between them. And these photographers chronicled a time in the lives of five women who led men from their church to their careers and gave to their community as mothers, wives, activists and pastors.

For 123 years, Grace Baptist has served those community members who have called it home.

How your feelings have changed as you have followed the entire 115-year history of the church — and its significance to generations of African-Americans in Chicago, the Midwest and the nation.
