GRACE BIBLE FAMILY,
We want to keep you informed about all that’s going on and a good place to start is by watching the pastoral update video here. As we have been moving through our Church Without Walls series, we have been reminded that the church is not a building, it’s a body of people. The Church is its truest self when it is on Mission and our Mission has not changed. We exist to empower a movement of people to live and love like Jesus.
These past few months have provided a variety of opportunities for us to live on Mission. Our food delivery team has delivered over 200 boxes weekly to people in our community. We have had the blessing to connect with many of you over the phone, and have been inspired by all of you jumping into action to connect and pray with others. We have been gathering via Online services, home groups and Summer Sunday Nights. God has been moving and some of you are ready to take next steps in your discipleship via Baptism. If you want to learn more about or sign up for Beach Baptisms on August 16th, sign up here.
We are incredibly excited to announce that beginning August 16th we will be gathering on Sunday mornings at 10:30am for in-person, outdoor services. We will also be streaming our online services at 10:30am on Sunday mornings, as well. Remember our Mission and values don’t change, though our methods and modes will stay fluid.
INSPIRATION: Beginning August 16th, at 10:30am we will be offering an in-person parking lot full church service. This same service will also be available on our new livestream platform, where you can not only watch the service online, but also interact with pastoral staff and volunteers. The livestream platform will be front and center at www.gracebibleag.com
TRANSFORMATION: Our current Groups page has resources for those small groups who have continued to meet through this time. If you are interested in getting connected with a Group coming into the Fall, or would like to host a Group, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ACTION: Looking forward to our outdoor service launch on Sunday, August 16th, we invite all of you to take action. This could mean signing up for our food distribution program here, leading a home group, or becoming part of our service team as a greeter/usher, tech/creative crew, set-up and tear-down, or kids and students volunteer. If you are interested in serving, let us know here.
We are excited to be back on sunday mornings beginning August 16th. We encourage you to invite your family, friends and neighbors. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com.
TOGETHER IN CHRIST,
Jason Whalen | Lead Pastor
