Coronavirus and Grace
Your session met and seriously considered the issue at hand and realized that this is not about us.
While we may want to continue living a normal church life, these are not normal times. By creating spaces where people are put at risk to either spread or be infected, no matter how slight we might believe that risk to be, we do not want to inadvertently add to the COVID-19 crisis. The decisions we have made have not been easy ones, and they were not arrived at lightly. But we believe they are in the best interest of the long-term health and safety of those we serve.
Accordingly, we have decided to suspend our communal worship and activities at least through April 26.

If you're looking for a great way to serve, the Community Cafe Food Truck would be glad to have you help. You can serve on Thursday and Friday afternoons and/or evenings to help prepare and serve food. There should be at least one adult helping out, but children around age 10 or older can help. Food preparation consists of making some PB&J and Ham & Cheese sandwiches. Go here for some more information and to sign up to help!
We have a variety of gifts, talents, and interests here at Grace. We encourage everyone to fill out this brief fellowship survey to allow others to know about your interests. This will help out the fellowship team by allowing us to plan events that match the interests of Grace. It will also allow Grace members to connect with each other through their interests.
