Responding as God's people

Covid-19 Response

Find information below on how Grandview is amending practices in response to CDC guidelines.

Grandview's Response

A note from the Pastor and Administrative Council Chairperson

People of Grandview,


Administrative Council met (via online meeting) on March 25th to discuss the new guidelines from the State and CDC regarding gathering sizes. The group voted unanimously to suspend in person worship until further notice. We will be monitoring the situation and will return to regular Sunday worship as soon as possible. 


Further, our Staff/Pastor Parish Relations Committee met April 1st (also online.) In response to the change in income due to not having in-person worship it is necessary to control expenses however we can. The committee unanimously agreed to reduce office hours and coverage as well as reduce our cleaning schedule. Changes will be as follows:


Starting Monday April 6th Pastor Charles will cover the office from 9-Noon Mondays and Wednesdays. Meryl will cover the office Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9- Noon. This will mean no scheduled coverage on Fridays. For cleaning, we are moving to a once a month cleaning instead of a weekly. As the church will have far fewer people in it weekly this should adequately meet the needs of maintaining the standards of cleanliness while being caution of our budget. These changes will remain in effect until in person worship resumes. 


We are assessing all expense items and will do everything in our power to  keep expenditures under our income during this unprecedented time.  


Please pray for the Grandview family as we walk this road together. 


Peace,

Pastor Charles
