We would like to invite you to join us for worship at GBC! Our services include inspirational music, a relevant message, and friendly people to help you grow closer to God. A map is provided below and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We hope to see you soon!
Thursday 6:30 PM
Sunday 8:30 AM
Sunday 9:45 AM
Please arrive early (10 to 15 minutes before the service begins). We ask that you do not come to service if you have a fever, been coughing, or feel sick. When you come, we will be checking temperatures and any attendee with 100.4 or higher will not be allowed to attend the service. We will also have hand sanitizer and masks available for any who need them.
The courtyard will be marked with areas for sitting. You can bring a blanket, lawn chairs, or folding chairs will be provided. We ask you to go to an area and stay there until the service is over. Please feel free to talk to those around you, but do not go around and visit others. Please keep 6 feet apart and if you have children please keep them with you at all times.
While we recommend masks for the safety of others, we will not require them for the services outside. Masks will be made available if you do not have one.
While bathrooms will be available, we ask that you only use it in case of an emergency. We will be keeping our services short so the total time for check-in, service, and dismissal to the car will be about an hour.
When the service is over, you will be dismissed by groups. Please immediately head to your vehicle and do not socialize after the service. We will be beginning in-person socially distanced small groups and encourage you to join one for a time of fellowship, but the worship service time will not be a time to hang out before or after the service.
There will be no meet and greet during the service. I know we have not seen each other for a while, but please respect people's private space and do not shake hands or give hugs. Wave, smile, and keep anticipating the day when we can greet each other more warmly.
There will be no offering collected in the service. Offering containers will be available to drop your offering. You can still give online or through text.
At this time, all services will be family services and there will be no childcare available. Children will remain with you during the entirety of the service.
The recommendation from the state is if you are elderly or in compromised health that you do not attend services in person at this time. We will continue to be making services available online, through DVD, and have online fellowships available for members who are not ready to come back to still be part of our church family.
