3 Phase Re-Launch Strategy

Over the past few months, churches all over the world have experienced a new way to be the church. The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to navigate moving our worship services, Grace Group gatherings, and meetings online. As social distancing guidelines loosen and as our region begins the slow process of reopening, our staff has prepared a phased relaunch strategy. We believe it is important for you as the church to understand each step we are taking to prayerfully relaunch Grace River Church into a new season that is already, and will continue to be, marked by powerful transformation. Below, you will find details of each of the three phases.

Phase 1
Phase 2 (Current Phase)
Phase 3

Please continue to watch for new information on this page. We will keep you updated with the latest news as it becomes available.

Sunday Morning Opportunities

If you have yet to tune in on Sunday mornings, make this Sunday your first! We will continue to be streaming our weekend services at 10:00AM on Facebook and here on our website. Additionally, we offer "The NINE” Bible studies at 9AM on Facebook. Make sure not to miss out on these opportunities to get connected with Grace River Church online.
