Dear Granada family,
I think it is fair to say that we didn’t imagine that the pandemic would continue into 2022. The bad news is that it has. The good news is that by now we have learned life patterns to protect others and ourselves. Here’s more good news. Our Granada sanctuary has proven to be a safe place to gather. We’ve enjoyed in-person worship through Advent and the celebration of Christmas. We thank God for his goodness and for providing protection during the holidays.
So, what is the guidance going forward into 2022? First, the gospel calls us to consider ways to serve and protect each other. What does this mean? During times such as early January when COVID cases have dramatically increased, our guest services team will encourage our people to wear masks during worship in order to limit spread and protect those most vulnerable. Second, if you have COVID or are displaying symptoms, we would also encourage you to remain at home and join us for worship online. The next week, you will be able to be present in-person once again. Third, treat each other with the grace and love that reflects the character of Christ. Others may have concerns and needs that vary from your own. Let’s guard our hearts and support and encourage each other through these days by loving people where they are.
Finally, I have been proud of the way we have walked through this time together. Yes, we’ve stayed together and lived in the hope and peace that God has given. I thank God for you. We will post an update as things change going forward.
Warmly in Christ,
Update to our RSVP process
We are no longer requiring guests to RSVP for church on Sundays. During the past months, we have established a great seating procedure that has allowed us to be able to have ample space between parties in the sanctuary without the need for our congregation to reserve a seat beforehand.
The GranadaKids! team will continue to need a reservation from parents who wish to drop off their children at GranadaKids! Time on Sundays. Simply find the GranadaKids! submission form on the GranadaKids! page.
Please let us know how you are doing. Maybe you simply would like to pray with one of the pastors or you have fears to share. We stand ready to come alongside you. Alternatively, you can also text your message to 305-444-5376 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We can better serve each other if we know what is needed.
Pray. We find that when we are going through times of stress, God uses these moments as times of accelerated spiritual growth. God asks us to lean into our fears and draw closer to him and to each other as a result. We’d love to receive any requests you have for prayer and/or to have you share in this time of prayer for the nation and the world.
Participate Online. You can watch the services live or follow the link to watch the service afterward.
We love our family, but being confined together in the same house under pressure for so long has caused some stress fracture to show. Don’t let these feelings take over your relationship or grow into something more hurtful to your family. We are here to provide support. Use this confidential form to contact our counseling pastor.
