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 Statement: 

"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 the Gospel. 

 

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

 

What you need to do:

Seating is limited, so Register for the service you will attend

Support and Follow the guidelines we have put in place with love and respect.

We value our online worship family and friends and we will continue our live broadcast. So, if you are more comfortable worshiping on-line, please continue to join us there. Those of you in the more vulnerable group, please join us on our Live broadcast.
