Upcoming Events & Calendar:

Please join us on Sunday mornings for Worship at 9am or 11am! Make a reservation for your family and read more about it at https://www.hisgraceforyou.org/phase-three/.
  • We will begin with two (2) Worship Services every Sunday: 9am & 11am.
  • Both services will be identical in music, message, and length.
  • Based on your survey responses, we believe that the 9:00am service will see the lightest attendance, so we ask that those who are at higher risk (age, underlying medical conditions, and at risk family at home), please try to attend the 9:00am service, if possible.
  • The church doors will open at 8:40am for the early service and 10:40am for the later service to allow for time to properly sanitize the church.
  • The 11:00am service will continue to be Live-Streamed on Facebook for those who feel safer worshiping from home.
  • Both services will still be broadcast on our FM Transmitter, and there will be special designated parking on the side of the church for those who feel safer worshiping from their cars.

Either fill out an online form at www.hisgraceforyou.org/gbc-directory/ or pick up a paper form from the Church Office, and give it to Casey Elkins.

TEN TAG TEAM GOING ON NOW!

Ten Tag Team begins on Sunday, October 11! What is it you ask? Ten Tag Team is a new, interactive challenge for kids to earn ten different tags by memorizing verses, reciting the Lord’s Prayer, and doing service projects! Each child can earn their first tag with a name tag and from there earn the other nine. After collecting all ten, they will be given a prize and become part of the Ten Tag Team. They will earn one tag per week, however the “serve tag” will need to be completed over several weeks. Parents will need to monitor their progress with this. Please contact the Student Ministry Director, Nandrea Groves, if you have any questions!

 

FALL BLOOD DRIVE

Thank you to everyone who helped with last Wednesday’s Blood Drive in any way! We had 27 donors and 26 donated pints of blood! Be sure to check your email inbox or your Red Cross mobile app in the upcoming days for the results of your COVID antibody test!
