Activity Summary 9/18/20


Amazing Grace’s transition to in-person worship gatherings is now underway!  Your leadership team is excited to be working on plans to start bringing us all together again for corporate worship.  Here is a brief summary of what’s coming our way:


September 20 through October 25

  • Creative Church  at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings (recorded online message as usual)

  • Creative Church LIVE at 6:00 p.m. Sunday evenings in the parking lot (or inside the church building if inclement weather)

  • Please remember to “self-screen” before attending, and please wear a mask!  Also, please bring your own chair for the outdoor service.


Beginning Sunday, September 20 


  • We will be meeting every Sunday evening through October 25.  This will be in addition to the online recorded message on Sunday mornings.  If the weather is good and the smoke is gone, we will meet outside in the parking lot.  However, if there is inclement weather and/or smoke, we will move the service into the church for that evening.  We will meet for sure, but the exact “where” of the meeting depends on the weather. 

  • We’re very excited about getting our in-person services going  – it will be so good to be with everyone again! 

  • We’re working hard to make sure we comply with all sanitation and health-related guidelines to ensure that we can continue meeting and that everyone who would like to participate feels safe and comfortable doing so.


Beginning Sunday, November 1


  • “Full Blown Church” at 10:15 in the church building on Sunday mornings. The plan is to move completely back to in-person worship gatherings on Sunday mornings at 10:15 in our church building. 

  • Our hope is to be able to livestream those services, and work has already begun on plans to make that happen.


If you have questions or would like more information, here are some members of the setup team you can call:

Activity Summary 9/14/20


  • We have met with David Mowry, our District Superintendent, and been given the District's guide for the Pastoral Search process.

  • We have chosen "Interim Pastor" as the path for us to start. Someone who lives in the area is selected to come for 2-5 days per week to maintain church operations, provide pastoral care, and preach. This is a maintenance and oversight role to keep things going until a new leader arrives. This can last 2-6 months, depending on the length of the search process.

  • We are in the process of the nominating additional board members to help with work that lies ahead.
