Welcome to Grace Together

Our desire is for Grace to be a hopeful, gospel-informed light in the midst of some uncertainty and will be updating this page Monday, Wednesday and Fridays with that goal in mind. We encourage you to stay engaged with the Grace Family through this page and your circles of ministry. We look forward to gathering together again in the future, but in the meantime, we’re grateful for technology to keep us connected. You’re in our prayers, Grace to you!

 


INFORMATION as of April 1, 2020

Grace Family

Given the ongoing Safer at Home directive we are moving forward with online services on Good Friday at 7pm and one online service on Sunday, Resurrection Morning at 10am both available at gracebaptist.org. We are also working on some specific devotionals and encouragement for passion week and a brief, online, sunrise service on Easter morning so keep an eye on this page as well as @gracescv on Face Book and Instagram.

This weekend's service, April 5th as well as our Good Friday service, we will celebrate the Lord's Supper and invite you to gather elements to host communion in your own home. Some juice and bread or crackers is all you'll need. If you don't have those items, no Pressure, we just hope you will participate as we remember Christ's sacrifice for us.

God is present and good in the midst of trials, thanks for your prayers as we are also praying for you.

Grace to You!
Grace Leadership

5 Predictions for the COVID-19 Aftermath  by Collin Hansen

GET READY FOR COMMUNION

This Sunday, during our online service, we will take time to celebrate the Lord's Supper. We have a unique opportunity to experience communion a little differently this weekend. In preparation for our online service, plan to have some juice and bread or crackers that you can use at home to join in for the communion portion of the service. We're looking forward to participating together, even though we are apart during this season. 

REACH OPPORTUNITY

As a church family, we want to be active in our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with other churches in the SCV, we learned of a need to help feed the medical staff who are directly caring for COVID-19 patients at Henry Mayo. These staff are not allowed to leave the quarantine area during their shift. We want to bless those who are working on the frontlines and therefore, we have committed to providing meals for 2 different shifts every Wednesday for the next four weeks. Let’s come together to serve those who are serving our community!
If you or your ABF/Grace Group would be open to purchasing a meal for these staff members, please email outreach@gracebaptist.org

NEIGHBORING

We often look to the helpful tools of program and events to reach our community and world. But, right now, most of us are restricted to our homes and neighborhoods—what a great season to be good neighbors! Below is a card that can be a tool to connect with and serve your neighbors. It explains your willingness to help and provides information to be connected. In a safe and responsible way, don’t waste this opportunity to establish or deepen relationships in your neighborhood, provide tangible help, and be a source of encouragement and light on your street!

SUPPORTING GRACE FINANCIALLY .... A FEW THOUGHTS

Grace Family, we are exceedingly thankful for all of you who support Grace Baptist financially. During this unprecedented time, it has been a great encouragement to experience the Grace Family continuing to be generous through sacrificial giving. Our desire is to continue paying our staff, as there are still many tasks we are undertaking daily, as well as being able to meet needs in the Grace family as they come up.

If you are personally in a place that allows you to participate in the financial needs of Grace, thank you! On the other hand, if these times have made finances difficult for you, please do not feel a pressure to give, that is between you and the Lord. We believe God has His hand on Grace and will provide for what is needed through His people. If you find yourself in need physically, emotionally or financially, please reach out, we are eager to see how Grace might be able to come alongside you. The easiest way to do that is to email info@gracebaptist.org and share you name, contact info and the nature of your need.

Here's a short video tutorial about online giving.
