Hello, Grace. I trust that you are praying for our country. 

Yesterday’s message is available here. You can also access all the messages in the series if you need to catch up. Ramping Up to the New Normal – Week Seven.

On Sunday, June 7, we will be beginning a new series based on Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus. The series will focus on who we are in Christ. Be sure and get in on the first message of the series, Discovering You: Identity In Christ. We will also be celebrating Communion together, so please make preparations in advance with a little bread or crackers and some juice or wine.

Our new target date for gathering together for worship is June 14. We will be taking extraordinary steps to keep everyone safe. Our usual attendance means that we will not need to limit who can participate, but we will encourage all the safe measures you’ve been practicing and learning about. Unfortunately, churches have some distinct vulnerabilities when it comes to this virus, and there have been some dramatic examples of the virus being spread at church services. We do not want that to happen at Grace. We ask that you be respectful and use great care to make sure everyone stays healthy. 

In order to help in the transition, I will be producing videos of the message. This will allow those who are deciding to stay home for a few more weeks to still feel somewhat connected. The videos will premiere on Facebook at 10:00 am – the same time we will be meeting at the building, and will be included in the Debrief.

Pastoral Search Team Update! The team has been working hard to lay the groundwork for the active search process, and they’re very close to launching! That means that our need will be posting in appropriate places online. Keep praying for the team as they take this significant step forward! 

Miss you all!
