UPDATE

Due to rising infection rates we are reminding all of the mask policy in place. Those who are unvaccinated and children 2+ are expected to wear a mask. We also strongly recommend those who are vaccinated to wear a mask as a demonstration of care for others.

Also, all seating has been returned to socially-distanced clusters in the Sanctuary. There will continue to be overflow seating in the Fellowship Hall and Cornerstone Room as well.

DETAILS:

In-Person Sunday Worship:


In-Person and Livestream services are every Sunday at 8:00 AM & 11:00 AM.
Past Services are available to view here.

Please read through the important changes we’ve implemented:

NOTE! Of utmost importance is your health and safety, as well as that of our entire church body. If you’re feeling unwell for any reason, but particularly if you exhibit any symptoms indicative of Covid-19, please stay home until you have fully recovered, and join us again when you’re well.

REQUIREMENTS FOR IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE:

FACE MASK POLICY: Face masks are no longer required for those who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after final dose). However, due to rising COVID infection rates we strongly recommend those who are vaccinated wear a mask as a demonstration of care for others. If you are not fully vaccinated you must continue wearing a mask. Parents: if you have children ages 4 and under and they aren’t able to keep a mask on at all times, you’re still welcome to come. However, your children must remain by your side at all times. For your convenience, strollers will be permitted during worship.
*Parents or adults entering the Grace Kids area must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

NOTE! If you or a close family member has traveled please adhere to the current CDC guidelines before attending GRC services.

CONTACT TRACING: Upon entry, we’ll record your attendance and record your seat location via video and photos in order to facilitate contact tracing, should that be necessary.

SOCIAL DISTANCING: While we’re a warm and welcoming church, kindly refrain from hugging one another or shaking hands, as we want to be respectful of people’s comfort levels.

SEATING: Due to the growing number of COVID cases in New Jersey, we have returned to all socially-distanced seating clusters in the Sanctuary. We will also continue to offer overflow seating in the Cornerstone Room and Fellowship Hall as well.

SANITIZING STATIONS: There are several hand sanitizing stations throughout the church. Please utilize them frequently. If you use the restroom, we ask that you sanitize before entry and upon exiting.

MINIMIZE CONTACT: Paper bulletins will not be distributed. You may access the bulletin, announcements, and connection card through the GRC mobile app or via the QR code found on the connection cards in the seat back pockets.

If you cannot join us in person, please know that we would still love for you to join us online, via our livestream.

Precautionary/Cleaning Measures:

For the health and safety of all who walk through our doors, GRC is committed to enhanced safety and cleaning measures on an ongoing basis. These measures include, but are not limited to:

* A strict and intense, deep-cleaning schedule for all bathrooms, door handles, etc. using EPA-approved cleaning agents.
* UV-C germicidal lights which kill up to 99.9% of viruses including COVID-19 for the HVAC system.
* Sanitation of the sanctuary after service using an electrostatic fogging sanitizer.
* Touch-free hand sanitizing stations available throughout the church.
* Pre-packaged communion elements.
* Bathroom faucets with touchless sensors to turn on/off.

Community Care & Outreach:
  1. Diaconal Ministry: Our Diaconate is working to coordinate the care of those in our congregation who need various forms of assistance. Use this GRC Support Form to indicate your need OR your willingness to volunteer to meet that need. We thank you for your generosity in supporting the Mercy Fund which has received a significant infusion during this urgent time!
  2. GRC’s Food Pantry, Father’s Cupboard, is receiving donations of food and basic need items on a daily basis. Food distribution happens every two weeks and is helping to support those in our community. Find the current shopping list and more information here.

Use other means to stay connected and to support one another through prayer and encouragement, and in order to maintain a sense of community.
