On Sundays, we have two indoor services at 9am and 10:30am.
You can access the livestreamed service on our YouTube channel each Sunday at 9am (links open in new tab).
As we navigate this particular season together, we encourage you to keep the needs and experience of others around you in mind. Read below under masks for the current masking guidance as of December 15, 2021. These three general guidelines will continue to be helpful for all of us:
- Even if you are healthy and have no concerns about contracting the virus, we encourage you to think of and follow all these guidelines as a way to love your neighbor.
- Please be aware that the comfort level of people around you may vary.
- Please pay attention to and follow the guidance of those on our Hospitality Team. They’re there to help us all love one another well!
We also understand there are some people who will continue to stay home for health reasons. Our 9am service will continue to be livestreamed on our YouTube channel, so we can all worship together. We’d love to have you join us.
Masks & Hand Sanitizer
As of August 1, 2021, given the recent spike in the highly contagious “Delta Variant” of the COVID-19 Virus, we at Granite Springs, following the advice of the CDC and the California Department of Public Health, recommend (not require) everyone wear masks as we participate in our Sunday worship services. This guidance was not changed by the California Department of Public Health masking mandate of December 15, 2021 for places of worship (see FAQ here).
Thank you once again for living in the spirit of “Love Your Neighbor,” especially those around us with compromised health and those not able to be vaccinated yet such as children.
Those who are not vaccinated are required to wear masks.
There will continue to be hand sanitizing stations for your use upon entering the building.
Nursery, Children's and Youth Ministry
During both services, we have in-person Nursery, Busy Builders (Pre-K) and Children’s Ministry (K-5th grade). Our Children’s Ministry volunteers will continue to wear masks whether vaccinated or not as an extra precaution for our youngest friends. For more details or any questions, contact Marrissa Sork (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our junior high group (6th-8th grade) meets during the 10:30am service, while the high school group meets after the second service from 11:30am-1:30pm. For more information about youth gatherings throughout the week see granitesprings.org/youth or contact Olivia at email@example.com.
We will begin serving beverages (coffee and lemonade) at our June 20 Sunday service. Further refreshments, including snacks to follow in the coming weeks.
Between the services, common surfaces will be wiped down including arms of chairs, the offering box, and bathroom surfaces. The sanctuary will be lightly mopped with a disinfectant rated by the EPA to kill the novel coronavirus.
While this season offers many unique challenges, we are so grateful to be navigating them together as a community. We give thanks to God also for the many people in all different fields who have cared for the sick and helped develop vaccines that are allowing a lift in so many restrictions.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, please feel free to reach out to the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
