COVID-19 UPDATES

LIVING AND LOVING JESUS TOGETHER THROUGH THIS PANDEMIC

LATEST COVID UPDATES as of January7th, 2020

LIVESTREAM WORSHIP SERVICES

An interactive livestream worship experience is available every Sunday morning at 8:30 and 10:30am | gracebibleag.com/live

It includes meaningful worship, teaching from the scriptures, and ministry updates.

IN-PERSON OUTDOOR SERVICES

In-person outdoor services happen every Sunday morning at 10:30am in the East Parking Lot (weather permitting).  

Some things to remember for this service:

Continue to social distance​. Others who have joined in corporate worship may not be comfortable with close contact. Be sensitive to others and respect their wish for social distance. Please refrain from contact with those outside of your immediate family / household as that is the easiest way to spread COVID-19. It’s very easy to forget this when you see someone you haven’t seen in six months and want to run up and give them a handshake or hug. Feel free to move chairs to ensure appropriate social distance.

 
Wear a mask when social distancing is not possible​. It seems that the topic of masks is one of the highest points of contention and we do not want our differing opinions about masks to drive a wedge between us. Again - be sensitive and respectful of others with regard to masks. Some people cannot wear masks because of health reasons, others have to wear them for health reasons.
 
Protect others by worshipping online with us​. If you are sick, have recently been exposed to someone who is sick, or suspect you might be sick please worship with us from the comfort of your home.Wash and/or sanitize your hands regularly​. Hand sanitizer has been available on campus and will be made available during services. Feel free to use the provided hand sanitizer or bring your own.
 

Chairs will be distanced on the first tier of the parking lot.  You are welcome to bring your own for extra social distancing. The upper tiers of the parking lot are reserved for those who prefer to stay in their cars.

 

Offering baskets will not be passed during the service.  You can give at the boxes under the connect tents or online.

 

Communion will be shared once a month and will be provided as an all in one packet.

 

All service resources (sermon notes, lyrics, etc) and communications will be available digitally on our homepage.

 

Kids Ministry is also available for kids birth to 6th grade.  Check-in next to the playground.

GROUPS

Here at GBC, we believe that transformation happens in the context of Groups.

Sermon-based small Groups and Women's Groups will be launching at the end of January.

Men's Group meets every Thursday morning from 6:30-7:30am in the Courtyard. Information on Women's Groups can be found here.

Prefer to try out a class and transition into a Group on that topic? Sign-up for Foundations courses on Finances, Parenting and Marriage.

WEEKLY OFFICE HOURS

Our office is open with staff ready to help Monday through Thursday from 9am to 4pm and closed on Fridays.

The best way to contact us is drop us an email hello@gracebibleag.com.  

PASTORAL COUNSELING

We realize this season has been challenging for so many people in different ways.  While our pastors are not licensed therapists, they do have training and experience in pastoral counseling and would love to support you through this pandemic.

Pastors are available for counseling during office hours. You can meet our team and find contact information on our Staff page.

While counseling indoors is being permitted, outdoor socially distanced pastoral counseling sessions are preferred.

Confidentiality will be ensured.
