Christmas Eve Service - Because of covid concerns and our desire to keep each other safe, we will not be handing out candles this year. Instead, we will be doing a unique "candlelight" service using phone flashlights instead of candles. If you would like your children to participate, make sure to bring something such as a flashlight for them as well. It may be different, but we plan on it still being a special time to celebrate our savior's birth together.
As numbers start to increase in and around Forsyth and Dawson County, let's take a moment to make sure we are familiar with our protocols and procedures.
In-Person Church Services

May 31, 2020 - We have pushed back our "restart" date and are looking at June 14th for being our first in-person social distancing church service at GracePointe!
We will also continue to have Church Online for those that will continue to worship with us online.
May 10, 2020 - We are looking at June 7th for being our first in-person social distancing church service at GracePointe! It'll be different y'all...but it'll be together. We will share our protocols and procedures some time in the next couple weeks.
And don't worry, we will still be streaming the service too for those continuing to stay home!
May 7, 2020 - Thank you for filling out the survey! One of the protocols to begin a social distancing worship service is needing sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer. If you have any of these two items to donate, there will be a box outside the church doors for you to drop your donated supplies off. The box will be checked daily. **Without these supplies, we will not be able to offer an in-person worship service** We have procured other supplies needed, but these. Will be sharing our protocols soon!
April 30, 2020 - Our church leadership is prayerfully and thoughtfully exploring how our congregation can begin to gather again. Most importantly, we are seeking God’s guidance in these decisions. We are also paying close attention to the orders and advice of our governmental officials and health experts. We want to hear from you as another important source of input. Would you please take 5 minutes to complete this survey?
April 23, 2020 Update - While Georgia is beginning to lift some quarantine restrictions, we are looking into the protocols and procedures necessary to allow those that would like to worship at the church on Sunday mornings, to be able to do so in a safe way. We will keep you informed! For now, we will see you at Church Online, THIS Sunday, 4/26 at 10AM.
