In-Person Worship and Celebration
We are very excited to continue offering in-person worship through the spring! REGISTRATION IS NO LONGER REQUIRED! As we gather, we will do so with great care, aware that the virus is still with us. And we will continue to offer opportunities to worship online every single week because we know not everyone is ready to come back to group gatherings and we respect and support that as well. If you feel comfortable, and would like to join us for in-person worship, please read below.
Each week we offer in-person worship with guidelines:
There will be no nursery or childcare or Sunday school for children or adults. We hope to offer these services soon! In the meantime, we will have a “wiggle zone” where you can take your kids if they get restless, and worship bags will be available for kids of all ages. Whether you worship with us in-person or online, we are so grateful that you are a part of the Grace community!!!!
