NO WORSHIP ON THE GRACE CAMPUS
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
AND OUR MINISTRY CONTINUES
Worship available via Social Media, Zoom, Youtube, Facebook or Conference call
Since mid-March 2020, there has been no corporate worship service at 4112 W. Slauson Avenue. This dates back more than 70 years before there was a structure of any kind on the corner of Slauson and Verdun. Covid-19 has delivered an opportunity for us to reconsider what really matters to us as a community and as individuals. During this time of safer at home and physical distancing, we will continue to do all we can to keep you abreast of the lastest developments and keep you connected with others in the Grace Family.
We will observe all safety protocols until further notice and all of us can gather safely. Many of us are in one or more of those vulnerable categories. The Pastor and Board trust that you will support and follow a care-filled path forward:
- No in-person worship services, meetings, or rehearsals until further notice.
- Go to YouTube and search “graceumcla” Subscribe to the Channel and that will make it easiest for you to access it on Sunday at 10:45 a.m.
- Go to Facebook and like our new page “GraceUMC” and the sermon will appear at 10:45 a.mm
- Our Wednesday Noon Bible Study will be 30 minutes online and on the phone. Click HERE on Wednesday at 12 p.m. and join the class via ZOOM video. Also, you may call 301- 715 -8592 and enter access code 169 104 127##
None of the above options will allow for interaction but it is what is available to us at the moment for me to connect with you and share in prayer, scripture, readings and a homily (short sermon). You will also be able to continue your faithful support of Grace during this time. Please see the 5 Ways of Giving (below).
You can help us by making sure everyone you know who is a part of Grace, actively or marginally, gets this message. Don’t assume they got it. Forward it to them. There will also be a voicemail going out to members, we do not have active phone numbers for all members and some people do not update their info. Don’t assume they will receive a call. Share the information. This is not fake news.
This is a moment in time when we get to claim and proclaim our faith. We get to know that God is God and nothing will shake our trust and faith in the one who made us. We are loved and we are more than conquerors through the one who calls each of us by name.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know EMAIL, CALL, or TEXT me.
Let us be faithful and prayerful.
Consider ways to serve this week: (1) support a Girl Scout’s cookie fundraising effort, (2) invite a family member to attend the Lenten Service via Zoom, and (2) encourage someone to take the vaccine.
A PRE-RECORDED VOICEMAIL FROM PASTOR CEDRICK goes out to all members. If you did not receive that message, please CLICK HERE and provide your name and number so you can be added to the database. We do not want you to miss any information or notices coming from Grace UMC.
