WORSHIP TOGETHER

CURRENT COVID-19 POLICY

The Grace EPC church house has opened for expanded activity throughout the week and multiple services for Sunday worship. The following COVID-19 protection policy is used to guide staff, congregation, and visitors entering and using the church house. 

  • All individuals are required to wear a mask upon entering the Grace EPC church house and must remain masked while inside for the duration of any activity. Everyone is strongly encouraged to socially distance in their gatherings, especially before and after church activities and worship services.
  • Grace EPC staff may remove their masks while alone in their offices but should replace their mask when another person enters the office, or when that staff member leaves the office.
  • Children five years of age and younger and those with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering are excepted from this policy. Additionally, it is permissible to temporarily lower or remove a face covering anytime one is communicating in a situation where the ability to see the mouth is essential—e.g., with a person who is deaf or hard of hearing.

INDOOR WORSHIP

IN THE SANCTUARY AT 9 and 11 AM

The registration link will be live starting each Monday evening at 7pm. Register each week, and let us know how many will attend from your household. 


Ushers will guide you to and from your seats, filling in front to back, and in reverse on the way out. There will be no children’s programming or childcare during services at this time. Seating in the sanctuary will be spaced to accommodate 30% capacity and 60 households. The liturgy (order of service) will be the same for all services.

  • Please worship from home if someone in your household is ill or exhibiting symptoms.

  • Please wear a mask while indoors, even when singing. We’ll have extras if you need them. This does not apply to those with disabilities or under age 5.
  • Please maintain a physical distance of at least 6’ while indoors, including in hallways and the narthex.
  • We welcome connecting with one another before and after the service, but ask that you do so outside.

LIVESTREAM

ON VIMEO, FACEBOOK, OR YOUTUBE AT 9 AM

Worship will be livestreamed from the indoor 9am service.  Its format will be identical to that of the outdoor service with a two-part sermon and one hour format.  The video will continue to be available through Vimeo, YouTube, and Facebook, and will also be available on our podcast Monday afternoon.
