Church Safety Announcement

March 19, 2020

            Out of respect for our governing authorities (Governor Mike DeWine has mandated no gatherings above 50 people and recommended that we avoid any gatherings over 10 people) and caring concern for our older members (the Lorain County Public Health Center says that those over the age of 60 are especially vulnerable to the Coronavirus), we have decided to CANCEL our worship services at Grace the next two weeks (March 22 and 29).  During the week of March 30th the Church Safety Team will reassess the situation and make a decision regarding Holy Week services (on April 5-12).
            Know that this decision to cancel public worship was not made lightly or easily.  God’s Word (spoken to his children from the lectern and preached from the pulpit) and His Sacraments (distributed to His disciples in Holy Communion) are the very means by which He delivers His grace to us.  And during times of pandemic, panic, and concern is just the time we need his mercy and grace all the more.
     Sunday Sermons can be found under the Worship Online tab at the top of the website. Or click here.
    As always, feel free to contact me for any reason – for prayer or even just to talk.. (440-775-3271)
                        Yours in Christ,
                             Pastor Josh

 

Our Vision Statement at Grace is “Where Christ is growing in us and through us.”

We have a beautiful mural located in our church narthex to help visualize this – a tree, with a variety of leaves that are events and ways in which we are growing and becoming and caring through Christ.

Worship is every Sunday at 10:00 am

Adult Bible Class is held on Sunday mornings after worship (11:40 am).
