Find information below on how Grandview is amending practices in response to CDC guidelines.
People of Grandview,
I am excited, nervous, jubilant and cautiously optimistic as I write you today.
Of course, there are no “right” or “wrong” answers in this unprecedented time. Based upon the best guidance from the State and County health officials, our Administrative Council has determined that we will restart in-person worship this coming Sunday, June 28, 2020. This decision came after much discussion and discernment and we trust that God’s hand is at work in directing us.
With that said, here are a few things we want to make you aware of:
If you are not yet ready to gather, we encourage you to remain at home. We will continue to offer an online version of worship weekly. It will no longer be available on Sunday morning, but rather will be a recorded version of the in-person worship which will be distributed Monday or Tuesday after. If you don’t have access to the online service and wish/need to remain at home, please let us know. We will try to find a solution for you.
If you feel ill, please stay home.
Our time together will still be modified for a bit. We will not be serving breakfast or hosting Sunday School for a while. We will continue to monitor safety guidelines and return to those practices as soon as possible.
Masks, glove, hand-washing, distancing is encouraged. We have AMPLE space in the sanctuary to space ourselves. We will “rope off” every other pew to help maintain distances. Should you arrive and not have a mask, there will be disposable ones available for you in the foyer.
This return is not perfect. However, we are hopeful that it will start to refill our “fellowship cups” which have been so emptied in these last few months. We look forward to worshiping with you this weekend either online or in person.
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (All for the greater Glory of God),

Pastor Charles has spent a great deal of time with Martin Luther's letter from the 1520's this week as he laid out his Christian response to the Black Plague. Here's a link to the letter if you'd like to read it for yourself.
