Dear Grace Family,

 

Earlier today Governor Roy Cooper issued an executive order prohibiting large gatherings.

 

In the interest of health and safety, Pr Brooks and Council President Dave a Schultz agreed that Grace would honor the Governor’s executive order.

 

We will not hold worship tomorrow, March 15th.

 

Further information about our worship schedule will come shortly.

 

Please continue to shelter in place and help reduce the number of Coronavirus infections in our communities.

There are many people who are more at risk of catching the virus and who have a higher mortality risk than those who are young and with no other health issues. As such, staying home and avoiding large numbers of people will protect those for whom catching the virus could have severe consequences. Please extend love and kindness to the neighbors in our community by limiting the places you go (like the grocery store, movie theater, restaurants). Also be aware of how the virus spreads. Even though you do not yet have symptoms, you could still have the virus. You may not exhibit symptoms for up to two weeks, making the transmission of the virus difficult to track. So even if you do not feel sick, it is still important not to place yourself in large groups of people. Since the virus spreads through coughing, sneezing, and touching, please make sure to always cover when you sneeze or cough. Wash hands often for at least 20 seconds and restrain from touching your face. We want to make sure that we are being responsible citizens by doing our part to slow the spread of the virus. We also want to be loving Christians by keeping our neighbors safe.

The Way of Grace is to: GROW with Jesus, REJOICE in God, ANSWER with hope, CARE for the neighbor, and EMBRACE community.

Vision Statement: God has a plan FOR OUR LIVES, and so we teach how to walk in the path of Jesus Christ; FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, and so we work to build healthy and strong communities; FOR OUR CITY, and so we share life with our neighbors in Walltown, Trinity Park, Duke, and the Triangle; and FOR OUR WORLD, and so we go with Good News.

Core Values: Because God loves us first, we value worship rooted in Scripture and Sacraments, service to all people, and being a welcoming community that loves and forgives one another.
