Memo to Grace Family
On March 13th, Grace leadership sent the following memo out via email.
Dear Grace Family -
We know you may have concerns regarding the COVID-19 situation. Please know that leadership at Grace are closely monitoring the situation, especially in Arizona, and also denoting best practices that we are being made aware of. Additionally, several of you have reached out, so we thought it appropriate to send an email out to our Congregation. If things should change, we'll update you, and also update our mygrace.church website.
As of tonight, we will be meeting this Sunday at our regular service times (9am and 10:45am). We have taken steps to provide a safe environment to include providing a clean church, hand sanitizers, individual communion servings , and changing up our offering so that you can deposit your offering in receptacles as you depart vs passing the offering plate.
If you're not feeling well or would prefer to stay home, you can listen to the sermon in the afternoon following services. For easy reference, here is the link to our sermon library: mygrace.church/media. If you'd like to learn how to give online so as not to miss an opportunity, please let us know with an email to [email protected] so that we can help you get set up.
On Tuesday this week, members of the Grace staff, Foundations Team (FT) and Operations Team (OT) will be further strategizing so that Grace can be well prepared as the health situation progresses.
We desire to provide safe and appropriate measures for both you all, as well as our visitors. Each of you matters to God, and to us.
If you have a need for personal ministry or assistance, we are ready to serve you.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rod Peterson (for the FT)
Jose Delgado (for the OT)
Updates Concerning Grace Happenings:
Men's Tuesday Morning Group Cancelled for 3/17
In an abundance of caution, Tuesday’s Men’s Bible Study is cancelled for 3/17/20. Paul Shedlock, our group leader, will be monitoring the situation and providing updates for future studies as appropriate.
3/23 Daytime Alpha Postponed
We are going to postpone the offering of our daytime Alpha session, previously scheduled to start 3/23. We recognize that this Alpha offering would be attractive to retired people (and others), and want to respect the concerns about vulnerable populations.
Women's 3/28 Retreat Postponed
In order to be cautious regarding health concerns, our Women's Ministry will postpone the retreat that was planned for Saturday, March 28th. Please keep your eye for the to-be-reschedule date!
