COVID-19 RESPONSE

Jesus invites us to remember and care for the most vulnerable among us. And so, we are getting creative about ways to be the church to our congregation and community in this time of "spacial solidarity."

As with almost everyone, we've made some changes to our "normal" way of doing things in this age of Covid-19. But as a community we are still growing in God's grace and building beloved community even as we remain committed to the health and safety of all, especially our most vulnerable people. We are currently offering several ways to participate in worship, service, and support ministries at Grace. For more information, read the detailed "Back To the Building Plan" for phased reopening here. Not into the details? You can find the highlights here.

Worship

ONLINE

We continue to offer all worship services online on Sunday mornings. Whether you are gay or straight, cis or trans, or figuring it out; whether you use hand sanitizer or wash your hands; if you are in the city or the country or across the world, you are welcome to join us at Grace!

 

After worship, please join us for Fellowship Time on Zoom. You can get the link here.

There are three ways to access our worship service.
