Grace Timonium

BUILDING RE-ENTRY

Registration begins every Wednesday at noon for the upcoming Sunday.

We are excited to announce that we will begin having in-person service starting October 4, 2020, at 9:30am. Since the beginning of the year, we have been working hard to develop a plan so you could safely re-enter the building and experience the outcomes of your generosity in-person. We know that you may still be uneasy and there is no pressure and no judgment if this is you. If so, please continue worshiping with us online until you are comfortable returning in-person.  

We require everyone to register for our in-person services. This will help us maintain the safety of our worship space by adhering to social distancing guidelines. By registering and attending, you agree to the safety protocols we have put in place.

WHAT IS THE DATE OF RE-ENTRY?

Our first in-person service will be held at Grace on Sunday, October 4, 2020.

WHAT ARE THE SERVICE TIMES?

We will start with one service on Sunday morning at 9:30am. This will allow for us to ease back in to the building and assess the current level of demand for in-person worship.  We are planning on adding service times in the future as needed. 

IS REGISTRATION REQUIRED?

Yes. We require everyone to register for our in-person services. This will help us maintain the safety of our worship space by adhering to social distancing guidelines. By registering and attending, you agree to the safety protocols we have put in place. Registration begins on Wednesday at noon for the upcoming Sunday.  

WILL ONLINE SERVICES CONTINUE?

Yes. We will continue our GFC online church experience for everyone who is still not ready to return in-person.  This includes maintaining our current level of excellence and creativity on that platform.  We have been reaching thousands of people every week with our church online experience and we want that to continue. 

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

You should arrive by 9:00am. Arriving early will allow the ushers to guide you to your seat safely so our service can begin on time.

WILL SOCIAL DISTANCING BE PRACTICED?

Yes. Please keep at least 6 feet away from others, and avoid hugs and handshakes. Masks are required for all, and hand sanitizing stations will be available.

WILL GRACE KIDS, GRACE STUDENTS OR GRACE DISABILITIES HAVE PROGRAMMING?

To start, we will be inviting everyone to join us in the main service. 

ARE CHILDREN WELCOME?

Yes! All children will be required to sit with an adult member of their household and observe social distancing. Children over the age of two are also required to remain properly masked throughout the entire service.

HOW ARE YOU COLLECTING THE OFFERING?

We are encouraging you to give online. If you would prefer to give in-person, we will have kiosks available where you can place your donation. 

WILL THERE BE WORSHIP?

Yes! Our worship team will lead us in worship during our Sunday service. They will also adhere to strict social distancing guidelines and only remove their masks while performing on stage.

SAFETY PROTOCOLS:
