On Sundays we have three in-person services at our regular times: 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am, and all three services will be livestreamed on our website.
Services will include corporate worship and the preaching of the Word, and will be shortened to one hour to serve those with small children, and to allow plenty of time to clean the rooms in between and prepare for the next service.
We will have reduced capacity seating in the Chapel, and will have two simulcast locations in the Pine Room and the Great Commission Room. You can find a map of our campus here.
Please note that face coverings will be required in all locations for the 8:00am service. Face coverings are still recommended in the 9:30am and 11:00am services, per Governor Lee’s recommendations, and are required in the Pine Room.
Each household will register for their desired service time and room each week. A registration link will be sent out each Tuesday afternoon in the This Week at Grace email, and posted on our website homepage.
During this time, we are not able to offer childcare, Children’s Sunday School, Youth Sunday School, or Adult Discipleship Studies.
If you are a visitor and have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to connect with you!
Guidelines for Regathering
To best serve our cleaning teams, please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your service start time. Please enter the building using the door closest to your room:
· Chapel: Great Commission Room door and the Portico door
· Great Commission Room: Great Commission Room door
· Pine Room: Discipleship Building (near the children’s area) door
We will have reduced seating in the Chapel, the Pine Room, and the Great Commission Room.
In the Chapel, to enable social distancing during the service, we ask that you use the designated rows to sit with your household. When you enter, please move as close to the front as possible, and sit as close to the center of the row as possible.
Please leave three (3) chairs between your household and other households on your same row.
Ushers will be available if you need assistance finding a seat.
In the Great Commission Room and Pine Room, small groups of seats will be provided for each household. Please select a group of seats that fits your household’s size. Volunteers will assist in moving seats around to help everyone find a place to sit.
To best serve our cleaning teams in preparing for the next service, we ask that you exit the building shortly after the service has concluded.
In the Chapel, please allow the row behind you to leave before you do, so as to not create congestion in the aisles.
Health and Safety
What Is Grace Doing To Prepare?
· We will have enhanced cleanings before, between, and after Sunday worship services.
· We will have air purification equipment and specialized disinfectants throughout the building.
· We are working with ServPro to provide a weekly cleaning to our gathering rooms and high-trafficked areas.
What Can We All Do To Serve Each Other?
· Follow the health and safety guidelines from our local, state, and federal officials, including Governor Lee’s Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives:
1. Watch the service from home if, in the last 14 days, you or someone in your household has been diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19, or is experiencing symptoms.
