Dear Family of Grace,
The past thirteen weeks, in-person worship has been on hold. Much of life has been on hold as we worked as a community to stop the spread of COVID-19. Worship online has been a new experience for all of us. Thanks to Eric Bush for his hard work and creativity for making this happen for us. Also thank you for your words of encouragement during the quarantine.
At our May Council meeting, Council appointed a Task force for reopening Grace. The Task force has been meeting and we will be reopening Grace on Sunday, June 21, 2020. Things will look different than what we have done in the past. Below are Worship restart guidelines. Keep in mind that this list may continue to change as we start worshipping together.
