Dear Grace Family,

This is an update to our  last communication on Thursday.  We pray that you are leaning on the Lord during these uncertain times and putting your trust in the Almighty God who is with us always.  

The Elders have asked us to share with you that we will have church online starting at 10AM and we are encouraging you to be wise about making the decision to stay home rather than  physically coming to the church building. Our doors will be open and you are welcome to sit in the sanctuary as we have church online (sort of like being in the audience for a taping as we will be acknowledging our online audience more than usual) so it will feel a little different.  However, If you have any concerns about your vulnerability to this virus, we encourage you to self-quarantine and join us through the many options we have available online. We are so thankful that we are already set up for live streaming as many churches do not have that option. Please note that we will not have children’s church available tomorrow and the children are welcome to sit with you in the service.  We will serve communion through a modified procedure and if you are home, you can join us with your own bread and juice. We can still be one church body through spirit and the gift of technology.   

The events scheduled for this coming week have been cancelled which include:

  • Lena’s Monday night bible study
  • Tuesday Morning Bible Study
  • Wednesday Night church (including School of Rock)
  • Thursday Senior Adult Lunch

We will continue to follow the situation this week and church will be online next Sunday as well.  Watch for updates from us.

President Trump has declared tomorrow a National Day of Prayer and Franklin Graham has put out a wonderful email encouraging churches to pray.  We will include that link here. Now is the time for Christians to be strong and courageous, knowing that Almighty God is with us. As His Word instructs, we are to cast our cares upon Him because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7)

If you have an emergency, please do not call the church number as we may not be in the office.  We prefer that you contact our cell numbers: 

Pastor Randy 727-422-5711  Pastor Lucas 727-422-8184, or Becky at 727-709-3219.
