COVID-19 Info & Response

  • WHAT WE ARE DOING:

    • Sunday services will be held online, even though we are meeting in person again.  The service begins at 10:45. 
    • We will take communion weekly.  We have a gloved volunteer using tongs to distribute the elements on Sunday mornings.  If you would like to pick up Communion elements for use at home, they are available during food drive drop off times.  
    • Our children's ministry curriculum will be made available to our Impact Kids families each Sunday after the message through our our Impact Kids Ministry Facebook group. 
    • All bible studies and small groups are meeting via Zoom.  Zoom meeting IDs are listed in our Weekly Update.  Contact info@trygrace.com for more info.
    • We are collecting food items, baby supplies, and hygiene products for Raleigh Dream Center.  
    • We have installed additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the building
    • Nursery and Impact Kids will not be available yet.  Families with kids are welcome to bring the kids with them to the sanctuary on Sunday mornings.
    • Access will be limited in some areas of the building.
    • The coffee station will not be accessible.  Hurts my heart to say that.
    • We have upgraded the HVAC filtration system in the building
    • We have installed floor decals to direct foot traffic and encourage social distancing.
    • Doors are propped, or opened by a volunteer
    • We will not be distributing any written materials.  Download the Church Center App to get all the latest info.
    • The seating in the sanctuary has been spaced out to allow for social distancing by family groups.
    • We have changed the hardware on the bathroom doors so they can be operated without hands
    • 2 new offering boxes have been installed in the foyer.  We will not be passing the offering bags around.
    • As required by the mask mandate, we are encouraging masks.
  • WHAT YOU CAN DO:

    • If you don't feel well, stay home.  If you are waiting for test results or are concerned about your exposure, stay home.  
    • Don't give in to fear.  Instead, arm yourself with facts from reliable sources like the National Institutes of Health,  the CDC, NC Department of Health & Human Services, and the Wake County Health Department.
    • Pray.  Pray for healing for those affected, for protection for all, especially those in the high-risk groups and medical professionals, and for the peace and love of God to cast out fear.
    • Reach out.  Check on each other.  Let us know if you have a need.  We are still here to serve.  Click here to submit a prayer request.
    • Continue to support the church prayerfully and financially.  
    • Support the food drive efforts to help those in need
    • Consider giving to the Hope Fund to prepare for the financial needs that many will be facing in the aftermath of this crisis.

  • Remember that God is sovereign, and He is in control.   His plans for us are good (Jeremiah 29:11).  We can have peace in this storm because He is with us!
