Grace Fellowship Hall will reopen, in a limited way, for the Sunday service on June 14, but only if the latest data and trends about the pandemic remain encouraging. Check this website for the latest information. When we do reopen, we’ll require masks and strict social distancing, and we’ll limit the number of people who can attend a service.

Meanwhile, we’ll continue posting services on YouTube, and we’ll continue offering opportunities to connect with each other by Zoom videoconferencing.

We respect your decisions to do what it takes to protect your health. We want to help you stay safe.
