In light of the COVID-19 situation, we are continuing with our online worship indefinitely. Our Session will be consulting with our medical task force to formulate a plan to open the church in stages, while making sure we are keeping everyone as safe as possible.  
 
The building will remain closed and staff will be working from home until Session re-opens it.
 

In addition to our 11AM livestream worship service on the website, we have added Worship Connect, a contemporary and. connectional worship service on Zoom ID’s and passwords for all gatherings can be found in the newsletter email. 

 
The Day School follows PISD for all closures and the part-time program is closed for the remainder of this school year. Our full-time program re-opened on Monday, June 1, following all of the state guidelines, including taking temperatures on arrival, no mixing of the classes, and teachers wearing masks, among just a few.
 

Your deacons and prayer team are active and here to support you. Online prayer requests can be submitted via the website. The Deacons are managing a support system. If you are in the at risk group, and would like some help taking care of errands which would require you to be out in public, click on the link in the blue box on the website and fill out the form. If you are healthy, and not at risk, and would be willing to help our at risk members, you need to click on the link in the yellow box and fill out the form. The Deacons will pair you up.

 

Your continued support and encouragement help ensure the ongoing health and vitality of Grace. As 2 Timothy tells us, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”

Re-opening Plans
 
The In Person Gathering Plan is a document, unanimously approved by our Session, outlining the different phases of re-opening and the benchmarks that would need to be met in order to move to a new phase. The Intentional Connection Plan is a chart outlining each phase and how it would be implemented by different groups within Grace.
