Our continued response to the ever-changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis is: First, we wanted to lead with faith and not fear. Second, we wanted pray daily for our city, state, nation and world. Third, we wanted to use wisdom in our daily lives.
Due to the recommendations from the Center of Disease Center & the World Health Organization and City of Abilene on large gatherings, we will be suspending all onsite Sunday and midweek gatherings until further notice. The great news is instead of you coming to church, the church will be coming to you online!
Our online service will be at 10:45 am on Facebook Live and our YouTube Channel. It will be a full service, the only difference is you will be sitting at home with family and also friends.
What to do:
To stay updated on COVID-19 please continue visiting our web page.
I will be giving live updates periodically. Your safety and protection are the utmost importance to us!! Please continue to pray as we navigate this ever-changing crisis together.
I love you! You are amazing!!!
Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Dear Grace Members and Guest:
Like you, we are monitoring and taking seriously the spread of the new coronavirus across the globe, and we have been praying for the slow of its spread and the mitigating of its effect for many weeks now. In light of both the news around this and the best practices recommended by the Center for Disease Control, our leadership team would like to recommend to you some common-sense best practices for Grace Point Church:
1. If you are sick or experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay home! You may join us online for our 10:45 am service.
2. Please wash your hands. With soap. Regularly (our staff and leaders have already embraced this practice, thank you).
3. If you have to cough or sneeze while you’re here (it happens to even the best of us, especially in allergy season), please make every effort to cover it up. In other words, do unto others…
4. Feel free to merely wave at and give a big smile to– instead of hug or shake hands with– people you meet and greet and love on Sundays.
5. FYI, our surfaces (particularly door handles, bathroom surfaces, and Grace Kids areas) are be cleaned and sanitized after every service.
As it’s been said, at this point, as with anything contagious, prudence and prayer are both helpful.

We love you and value you and your family safety!!
We understand there aren’t many places to which you can go to find friends with a listening ear or to find help in a time of need. We are hoping that you'll take the time to be our guest in this church we call family. Our mission is "reaching people, building community." That means that no matter where you've come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to engage, establish, equip, and empower you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world.
Our aim is to provide you and your loved ones with life-giving truth from a culturally relevant, spiritual perspective. Our staff, volunteers, and members also hope to create the kind of accepting and caring environment which allows you to feel that you have arrived home when you walk into our church building. Our greatest hope is that your time with us will help you find more of God and the reason for which He placed you on the earth.
