Grace has an uncomfortable dinner date with a former beau and his fiancée; Jacob and Kerissa face the deficiencies in their marriage; Kevin has an unwanted attraction; and Senator Banks ups the pressure in his inquiry into the church's finances.
Grace decides to move home in order to pursue the person she blames for her sister's death, but working at the church proves to be more difficult than she imagined. In other events, Jacob takes on more responsibilities at the church as a result of her return; Kevin has doubts about his and Charity's plan to start a family; and the Bishop refuses a senator's inquiries into the church's finances.
The drama centered on a Memphis megachurch opens with the return home of estranged daughter Gracie following the death of her sister, Faith. Her father, the church bishop, seems happy to see her, but other family members are less than welcoming. Complicating matters even more: she learns unsettling information about the family and her sister's death from her Aunt Mavis.
