Graceway's Ongoing Response to COVID-19
We have now turned a corner in our response to COVID-19. We are legally able to gather up to 30% of our building capacity while using social distancing protocols. This isn't the same as gathering with our entire church family, but it is a welcome change as we begin to return to worship together. We continue to long for the day when we can gather together as a body.
- Our Morning Worship Services will continue to be livestreamed on the Graceway YouTube Channel. However, we are arranging to have a limited number of people attend our service in-person. Please be sure that your name is on our list of expected attendees before you come. In order to gather as safely as possible, additional protocols will be sent by email to the church family.
- At this point, our Adult Bible Study (Second Hour) will take place on Zoom, on Sunday at 11:30am. We will keep our morning service shorter than usual to allow time for people to return to their home to log-in to Zoom. If you would like to join us for this Bible Study, please contact us.
- Sunday School classes are held on Zoom on Sunday afternoon. Parents will receive a link to their children's class. Please note that these classes have been scheduled through the afternoon in order to allow the different age groups to participate within device and bandwidth restrictions.
- On Thursdays at 7:00pm, we host an online Bible Study and Prayer time using Zoom. This will remain for the time being. If you would like to join us for this Bible Study, please contact us.
One of the biggest challenges we face as a church when we don't have a weekly gathering is the financial reality of not taking an offering. However, the expenses of ministry continue. We are working to make it as easy as possible for you to continue giving faithfully to God's work at Graceway. More details will follow, but here are a few options to consider:
- Tithe.ly is our online giving solution where you can give via a credit card. There are associated fees, which you can cover for us along with your donation if you wish.
- So far, the postal service is still operating and you are welcome to mail us a cheque at any time to Graceway Baptist Church, 103 Martin St., Milton, ON L9T 2R3..
- Those who attend the morning worship service in person will have the option of dropping their offering into a box as they exit.
We continue to pray for each of you as you live and work during these unusual times. We trust the God who has seen tomorrow and will remain faithful. Please let us know if we can help you in any way during these next few weeks.
