Many of you may have gotten the information regarding the surge
of cases of the COVID19-Delta-variant in the Jackson County region. The new CDC
and IDPH recommendation provide for us guidelines, as we examine and evaluate
the risk to our people at Grace. The Illinois Great Rivers Conference is not
issuing any new conference wide measures at the moment but allows local
churches to determine best practices to safely gather during these times.
After discussion, our administrative council have
decided to ask for you
to wear a mask when you come to Grace church for any meetings or
gatherings, starting this Sunday,
August 1st, 2021. Albeit the discomfort, this measure will allow for us
to continue to do what we love to do - gather together and care for one another
in Christ. We have come this far with all of you being patient, and prayerful.
Thank you for your loving and caring attitudes towards each other.
In case you are not able to bring a mask, there will be one available in the lobby. You can also worship with us online, as we will continue to provide video streaming through Grace’s Facebook page.
Looking forward to connecting with you. As always, God is good!
Your brother in Christ,
