As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, we wanted to make you aware of the steps our church is taking to ensure your health and safety.

We have three things that we wanted to pass along to you…

1. We are actively working to do OUR part.

We are intentionally working to provide a clean, sanitary, and safe environment for our members and guests to worship God.

Our staff has deep cleaned and sanitized our restrooms and hard surfaces in the high traffic areas.

We are continuing to monitor this virus with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), and World Health Organization (WHO). We have taken the precautions they have suggested for group meetings. 

 

2. We ask YOU to help.

If you are sick, please stay home and join us via our online livestream at our church website (www.gbcws.com) or our Facebook page.

Please do your part by practicing basic hygiene, i.e. washing your hands and sanitizing after touching any surface someone else may have touched.

Additionally, please do your best to avoid physical contact with people while at church. We know this will be difficult, but it is important that each of us do our part to ensure a safe and healthy worship space.

 

3. We encourage you to trust that God is doing HIS part.

Even in times of uncertainty and doubt, our God is a rock and we can cry out to Him. God is good, and we can find comfort and peace even in this storm.

Psalm 61:1-2 – Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

 

At this point, we plan to meet on Sunday, March 15 for services as scheduled. If you are sick, immuno-compromised, or in a high-risk group (click here for more information), please stay home and worship with us via our livestream.
