Graceway's Ongoing Response to COVID-19 (Updated March 27)
As we continue to adjust to the new realities around us, we are working to make this transition as easy as possible and to find solutions for us to continue ministry through these next few weeks. None of these are perfect solutions or exact substitutes for the gathering of a local church, so we continue to long for the day when we can be together.
Generally speaking, we are simplifying our ministry in these times in order to focus on adapting to change and doing things as excellently as possible. We will add events over time as we adjust to the changes.
- Our Morning Worship Service will be physically closed to the church family and the public, but will be livestreamed on the Graceway YouTube Channel. We encourage you to bookmark and/or subscribe to this channel in order to receive a notification when we go live. We will also provide a link to this stream at www.gracewaybaptist.org and on the Graceway Facebook Page.
- Our Adult Bible Study (Second Hour) will take place on Zoom this week, on Sunday at 11:30am. If you would like to join us for this Bible Study, please contact us.
- Sunday School is set to restart on Zoom this Sunday. Parents will receive a link to their children's class in the next day or two. 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 Thursday at 7:00pm, we host an online Bible Study and Prayer time using Zoom. If you would like to join us for this Bible Study, please contact us.
- Kids 4 Truth has been postponed through April 2 and we will re-evaluate at that time.
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.
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.
