Grace UMC loves to welcome new guests! We invite you to join us for worship on Sunday! Here are some helpful things to know about in-person worship.

As of Sunday March 27, 2022, wearing masks and practicing social distancing will now be optional at all Grace UMC worship services. Leaders and staff members continue to support you in choosing the weekly worship opportunity that best empowers you to love God, neighbor, and self.  We encourage each person in the congregation to honor one another’s choices and to practice hospitality by asking others before taking a seat immediately next to them or extending physical touch.

What to expect at worship:

  • Sunday services will continue to be offered in-person at 8:00am and 10:00am. (If you prefer a smaller group and room to spread out, consider attending the 8:00am service. Please note that the choir does not sing in person at the 8:00am service.)
  • The 10:00am Sunday worship service will continue to be broadcast on ZOOM, Facebook, and YouTube.
  • On-site worshippers will continue to check-in at the welcome table before entering the sanctuary.
  • Wellness guides will help you find a seat based on your preference to sit closer or further apart from others.
  • Professional nursery care is now available!
