We have a plan for Easter! We will not be able to meet in person on the traditional Easter weekend April 10-12. But we're still going to celebrate Easter together.
As soon as we are able to meet in person again, we'll take a couple of weeks to get settled, and then we'll have our Easter weekend! Whenever that is. We'll do Good Friday on that Friday, our Easter brunch on that Sunday morning, and then our Easter worship service after that.
A message from our pastor
Worship service will be online only
See our "Disciples at Home" for getting connected:
Sunday school classes, the prayer group, and Small Groups
These are currently being organized to go online.
Please remember to continue supporting Grace with your offerings. We will not receive cash at this time. Checks mailed in are OK, but we prefer online giving during this time. You can switch to online giving here: https://www.fellowshipofgrace.org/resources/online-giving/
As we adapt and plan, we will update you on how the various ministries will continue to serve the body of Christ and the world.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the church office M-F 8am - 2pm, or Pastor Colby directly during off-hours if you need an immediate response.
