Do I need to register to attend service?
No, registration is not required to attend in person services at either of our campuses.
Do you need my help to pull this together? What should I do if I want to help?
We definitely need your help! We’re looking for volunteers to serve as greeters and in children's ministry. Those are the biggest needs for sure right now. To volunteer, fill out our service interest form or a SERVE card in the auditorium seat-back pocket. Serving frequency is flexible, so you can volunteer to serve once a month, a couple of times a month or every week. We have room for you to serve.
Arriving at Grace
Where should I park?
At North Liberty you can park in our parking lot, in front or behind of the church. We have dedicated spots near the entrance for visitors, please feel free to use one!
At Downtown Iowa City we have a small parking lot near Old Brick that is reserved for visitors and families with small children. Additionally there is ample street parking available on East Market and North Clinton streets.
Finding your Seat
What door should I enter?
When parking in front of the church, the main front entrance is closest. When parking behind the church, the rear office entrance is closest.
How close will I be to others around me once I’m seated?
The main sections in the auditorium are free seating on a first-come, first-serve basis. Self-serve socially distant seating is available on both side sections in the auditorium. Please be considerate of others around you, and ask other attenders about their comfort level for interaction before approaching them while in the socially distant seating areas.
Health & Safety
Do I have to wear a face covering to attend service at North Liberty
No, face coverings are currently not required during in-person services. For more details, visit our May 20 covid update.
Will my child have to wear a mask?
No, children are currently not required to wear masks at in-person services or in classrooms.
Who has the church consulted in preparation for reopening?
The church staff and elders have consulted with our COVID-19 task force (a group of doctors and experts who attend Grace), local health authorities, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), other churches in the corridor area, and other large churches nationally.
I am not feeling well, or may have been exposed to Coronavirus. Should I come to service?
No. If you are not feeling well or any reason or believe you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus within the last 14 days, do not come to an in-person service. Instead join us for our weekly online service until you are healthy.
What are the church guidelines on coming to service after being sick?
Please follow the CDC guidelines for what to do if you are sick and for returning to public spaces after being sick, or being exposed to the Coronavirus.
I have concerns about something the church is, or is not, doing. Who should I talk to?
Over the last year we, like many of you, have made many difficult decisions. We thank you for your grace and generosity of spirit throughout this difficult season. We value your partnership in the gospel, and as brothers and sisters in the body of Christ with us. If you have questions or concerns about these changes, please contact Josh Haveman at email@example.com or by calling the church at 319-626-2040.
