We preach expositionally. We expound and teach the Bible as God gave it to us, mainly preaching through entire books in the Bible, over the course of a series.
GraceKids children’s ministry will be offered at both services, indoors, for infants through 6th grade, with check-in on-site. Masking is still required for GraceKids through Sunday, June 13th. GraceKids Policy through 6/13. Read below for the update on the GBC Covid Policy plan.
Covid Policy Update - Please Read Before Attending
Steps the Elder Team has agreed on:
~ We will maintain an outside service (8:30am) and an indoor service (10:30am) at least through the month of June.
~ The CDC advises unvaccinated people, including children, to continue wearing masks. Given the recent end to Virginia’s universal mask mandate, and in light of the dropping infection rates along with the various challenges and perspectives around navigating COVID, we are not requiring anyone to wear a mask at GBC, nor are we discouraging anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask. This policy is now in effect for our worship services, and will go into effect for GraceKids starting June 20th, to allow for parents and volunteers to adjust to changing circumstances.
~ As of Sunday, May 30, the indoor service does not require registration. You may sit where you choose.
If you are sick with COVID-19 or any symptoms of COVID-19, if you are awaiting test results for COVID-19, or if you have had direct contact with a known COVID-19 case in the prior 10 days—you are not permitted to attend. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
~ Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
~ Muscle pain
~ Sore throat
~ New loss of taste or smell
Our mission is DISCIPLES MAKING DISCIPLES - Loving God and People Through The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are a thriving and diverse community, joined together by common purposes: expositional preaching, passionate worship of God, the pursuit of Christ-likeness together, and a desire to advance the gospel locally and to the ends of the earth!
Jesus is central to everything we believe and do as a community. And everything we know about Jesus is found in the Bible: God's written word given to us. So, we expound and teach the Bible as God gave it to us - generally preaching through entire books of the bible through a series of sermons. We also pray purposely and sing theologically rich songs. We respond to God's word through participating in the Lord's Supper (typically the 2nd Sunday of each month), giving our offerings, and other forms of worship born out of the truths of Scripture.
