Update as of March 18th
Today (March 18th), Pastor Duane issued the following email to Grace attenders (click the button to read the memo)
In a nutshell, we are suspending all services and gatherings until April 6th, at which point leadership will meet to discern next steps and plans for Holy Week. We are striving to act responsibly and follow the guidance of local and national health and civic officials. We request that you don't come to church on Sundays, or other days, but rather join us in a new adventure of learning how to meet "virtually."
On Sundays, you can "come to church" by joining us as Pastor Duane delivers the message via live stream. You can join by visiting mygrace.church/livestream. (Keep tuned in here...we may have an update as to how we do this!)
And, you can always listen to recorded messages at the message library: mygrace.church/media (Sunday messages are available in the afternoon).
While physical gatherings are something to avoid, we can still gather in many ways. If you lead a ministry or small group you can still hold meetings using one or more online tools such as Facebook, Zoom, Blue jeans, etc. If you already know how to do that, please reach out to your people to get them together. If you need some help, fill out the form below, and we'll work to get that to you.
At this time, it can be especially spiritual for you and for others when you exercise your generosity, using your time, talents, and treasures to help those around us. Here are several things you can do:
- If you are able to walk in your neighborhood, make it a prayer walk. As you pass houses, neighbors, and other places, pray as you go for those there. If safe and appropriate, share what you're doing with those you encounter.
- Consider picking up a few grocery items for those who can't shop for themselves. If you'd like to serve in this way, please fill out the form below.
- Join with us to share where you find your hope in this time. If you'd like to share a brief "blog" type of post, you can write it and email it to [email protected]. To read what others in our Grace family have written, check it out HERE.
- Please don't forget your offerings to Grace's general fund, benevolence fund, Space for Grace or other funds and ministries. You can visit mygrace.church/give to process a one-time or recurring gift. If you need help, please fill out the form below.
