Our New Normal
June 22nd, 2020
As we resume our public gatherings, we are excited to come together again and worship as a spiritual family! Here are some details about what to expect when you return on a Sunday to Grace Community Church:
What time will we have our services?
We will resume both of normal worship services at 9:00am and 10:45am.
For the first few weeks back, we ask that you let us know which service you plan to attend through our online reservations HERE.
For those who are not able or not yet comfortable returning to our building for worship, we will offer live-streaming for both services on our website, Facebook Live, and our Grace Community Church apps on Amazon, Roku, and AppleTV.
Will there be childcare?
We will not provide childcare for the first few weeks as we adjust to gathering again. Our plan is to resume Grace Kids in the future.
We encourage you to bring your kids with you into our auditorium, worship with us in the atrium, or worship with us in the Garage (the space with the big garage doors).
Will there be social distancing?
As a part of trying to ensure a safe environment for worship, we ask that everyone practice social distancing in the atrium, auditorium, and everywhere on our church campus. We encourage everyone to sit with their household or family, but to leave at least a chair of space between other households and families.
What about masks?
We realize this is a highly-sensitive and personal decision and encourage everyone to follow the CDC recommendations as they are comfortable. We will provide masks for those who wish to wear them. Most importantly, we ask that grace be given to everyone, regardless of their decision to either wear a mask or not.
Will there be extra cleaning?
Yes! We will have hand sanitizer stations throughout our building. In between services, our staff and volunteers will disinfect high-touch surfaces, including our restrooms. Each week, our building is professionally cleaned following CDC recommendations.
What about coffee, water fountains, Info Cards, and the offering?
In an effort to limit high-touch activities, we will not serve coffee or use our water fountains. We will also not pass out Info Cards or pass our offering buckets. We encourage those who wish to give to use our online giving platform or our kiosks in the atrium. There is also a giving box next to our kiosks, as well.
If you have any questions, please email us email@example.com
We look forward to worshiping with you again!
