A NOTE FROM PASTOR TONY:
Grace family and friends,
I am excited to tell you that on June 7th our On-Site
worship services will resume. The Lead Team, key leaders and my Advisory team
have worked together to develop a plan for re-opening the building and to
include our on-site worship services. We are taking every precaution to create
as safe of an environment as possible. Our top priority is safety for you, your
family, our ministry teams and our community. So, for now, we are following the
guidelines established by our Nevada Government officials and medical
professionals as we move into Phase 2.
Grace, as we move forward, let's lean into our Vision
"Loving God, LOVING PEOPLE at home and around the world".
When Jesus was asked... "What is the most important
command?", he respond, "First, Love God and second, love your
neighbor (people)" Mark 12:30-31
Let's continue to practice what we have built Grace to be.
Let's err on the side of caution through love and respect, basically let's
"Love people.” Emotions are running high and there are a lot of different
opinions on most of the steps we are taking. Let's practice love and respect
for each other, even the people you don't agree with. Give each other room for
their opinions and don't assume, “I am the one that is right.” The steps we are
taking as a church are designed to love each other, while creating as safe of
an environment as possible. First and foremost, we are going to open doors for
A few things we are doing:
*Practicing Social distancing: Seating is arranged in family
groups of 3 & 4 with 6' spacing - Seating Capacity is 50 people.
*Adding Hand sanitizing stations
*New signage for entrance - social distancing - hand
sanitizing - restroom care and capacity (2 each restroom)
*Requesting everyone to wear a mask and we will provide one
if you forget yours. (Parents with Preschoolers and younger children will
determine the use of mask for their child/children)
*The building will be deep cleaned before and after services
and Life groups.
*Creating Turn Around Teams: These teams will assist with
security, seating and cleaning / prepping
the building between services.
*Two services: 9 am
(12 yrs and older) & 10:45 (all ages)
NOTE: We will
not provide children's programs or
nursery during Phase 2.
*Water Fountains closed
