We are excited to announce we will begin a phased-in return to campus beginning with worship on Oct 4. Please see the chart below for the specifics of the plan. Phase 2 begins on Oct 4 with continued online worship, in-person worship with a reservation, youth ministries, small groups and limited church office hours. You can make your weekly reservation by CLICKING HERE!
During this return to campus, we will be implementing many cleaning and sanitizing protocols as recommended by the CDC and local health authorities, as well as, creating an environment that is as touch-less possible. Additionally, we will be requiring masks and social distancing until further notice. It is recommended that you bring your own mask with you to campus, however, one will be provided if you do not have one. More details on other changes will be coming over the next two weeks.
Hospitality snacks will not be served initially, so please make plans to bring your own if you so desire.
The staff and Relaunch Task Force are hard at work to make this return go as smoothly as possible, but this is an "ALL HANDS ON DECK" time and we will need the help of all of you. Please find a place where you can serve and help make this return to campus a wondrous success. Visit mygraceumc.com/reopening for all the details!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out through the church office (661-8858 or firstname.lastname@example.org).

NEW BIBLE STUDY STARTING SOON!
Join an online Bible Study hosted by Bishop Ken Carter and sponsored by Fill the Table! Join Bishop Carter each Wednesday at 6p beginning September 9 through November 25. You'll hear from biblical scholars, share your prayer requests and learn with fellow Methodists from across the Conference.
This a great way for local church groups to study the Gospel of Matthew chapters 18-25. We will build in time for intercessory prayer within your small groups during the study. We will celebrate a litany of remembrance for those who have died of COVID-19 and acts of racism on the Wednesday (October 28) before All Saints' Day and we will conclude our twelve eeks with a Love Feast on the night before Thanksgiving (November 25).
