While COVID-19 is pervasive in the news cycle and our day-to-day lives, we feel it is important to keep everyone up-to-date on how this is affecting life at Grace Church in Relay, MD. While we may not be meeting together face-to-face as the body, we are still the body of Christ. The church is not the building, and we will demonstrate that for His glory through this time.
All church activities in which we have physical gatherings are cancelled for the time being. Small groups and community groups are still meeting through video conferencing. Contact Pastor Eric if you would like more information on joining a Community Group.
The session has decided NOT to celebrate the Lord’s Supper on first Sundays during this season. We are aware that some churches have decided to continue with a virtual communion experience. However we believe that “coming together” in the New Testament implies a physical, not a virtual, experience. When we come together around the Lord’s Table we celebrate our faith, we look backwards at what Jesus did, we look forward to the wedding supper of the Lamb in the kingdom, we look inward, examining our heart relationship with Him and finally we look upward rejoicing that He who reigns on high is spiritually present with us.
