This update supercedes all previous updates.
I hope and pray this message finds you well. These are strange times for us all, but we can rest in the blessed assurance that our God is a Good Shepherd, who loves His sheep and promises to meet our every need. (Matthew 6:25-33).
On behalf of the elders, I want to remind you that while we may not be meeting together for a few weeks, we are seeking to find ways to remain connected to you all through the teaching of the Word, Worship and mutual encouragement. How we do all this continues to evolve, but we want you to know that we and countless others are working around the clock through deed and prayer to love and care for this church.
As of today, we hope to provide the church with regular mid-week video feeds from Pastor Tony that will serve as both a time of devotion and general information. We believe these will be helpful to keep the church informed and encouraged in the days and weeks ahead.
We also are planning to continue with streaming our services on Sundays. I learned from the county today that live streaming is an option that we can pursue provided we keep the staff to a minimum and maintain the social distancing protocols.
As we continue to love and serve each other through word and deed, please remember that one way we do this is through continued regular giving to the various ministries at Grace. While we aren't meeting on Sundays for a while, ministry still goes on as we care for the needy and seek to remain faithful to our other financial obligations.
As a reminder:
1. You can give online by clicking here.
2. You can give through your financial institution's direct bill pay.
3. You can mail your gift to the church directly at
40 Cleaveland Road
Pleasant Hill, CA 94523.
Lastly, we recognize that this is a difficult time for many of you, and the Shelter In Place order may cause some financial hardship especially for those of you who work hourly. Please let us know if this is the case so we can be sure to help. There are many who stand ready to serve and love the body.
