Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Updated September 2, 2021

In response to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in North Carolina, Grace Baptist Church is voluntarily taking the following precautions for the safety of our congregation.

  1. Fellowship ministries (Men's Ministry, Ladies of Grace, and Senior Saints) are being suspended during the months of September and October.
  2. You are asked to stay home from services if any of the following apply:
  • If you are sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of the sense of taste or smell, or other viral symptoms)
  • If you have reason to believe that you have had contact with an active case of Coronavirus within the past 10 days
  1. We have re-implemented social distancing during services. Families may sit closer together while maintaining social distance between families. We will use our in-house video feed to the Fellowship Hall, Choir Room, and Nursing Mother’s Room so that people can spread out in the facility.
  2. Those who wish to do so may voluntarily wear a face coverings when social distancing is difficult to maintain. Whatever your choice, please be kind and understanding toward those make a choice different than yours
  3. Avoid physical contact such as handshakes and hugs
  4. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  6. Touch-free hand sanitizer is available in the foyer and above the water fountain in the education wing
  7. Offering plates will be placed on the information table at the back of the auditorium instead of being passed in the pews.
  8. When observing the Lord's Table, we are using prepackaged, single-serving communion elements.


We are livestreaming our Sunday Services and our mid-week Prayer Meeting on the SermonAudio platform. A link to the live webcast is available on the church homepage. The webcast is available only during the actual service times. Audio recordings of past sermons are available via our sermon archive and on our SermonAudio broadcaster's page.


Jesus wants us to love one another (John 13:34-35). Let us all endeavor to love and respect those who make a decision different than our own (Rom. 14:3).
