CDC has suggested that all gatherings of over 10 people be canceled due to the Coronavirus. Services & all building related activities are canceled for now. We will be streaming our Service on Sundays. To contact our church office, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are staying on top of coronavirus (COVID-19) developments in our community and will continue to follow the lead and guidelines issued by local, state and federal agencies. We are also staying in contact with medical professionals inside of our church family.
Our Church Building is closed , we are working on disinfecting all surfaces and other high-touch areas with antibacterial and antiviral cleaning solutions. We are continuing our vigilant environmental cleaning and disinfecting protocols in order to provide a clean and healthy facility for our guests, members and children for when we are able to reopen.
The best way to prevent spreading the virus is to follow these CDC recommended hygiene practices:
• Please stay home when you are sick (7 days minimum is recommended).
• Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover it, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Contingency Planning for the Future
Grace Bible Church is developing contingency plans to respond in different ways if it were to become necessary. We are now streaming our Worship Sunday Service, using digital communication channels, online giving tools to sustain ministry efforts, and we plan to support our church family and community as needed. This would be a good time to make sure your email address and phone number are up to date in Community Bible Church (CCB) (https://gracebiblecolumbia.ccbchurch.com/goto/login).
Please join us in praying for those who are ill, as well as for those who are serving the sick, for God’s protection and provision.
