  • Door handles sanitized
  • Bathrooms sanitized
  • All surfaces that have been used will be cleaned after both services

If an attendee of a Sunday service at GracePoint contracts COVID-19, we will:

  • Close the church for 72 hours to allow potential for exposure to respiratory droplets to decrease, and for cleaning and disinfecting to occur.
  • Notify members and attendees that an individual who has contracted COVID-19 has attended a Sunday service at GracePoint.
  • Encourage those who attended to monitor their symptoms, consider testing, and call their primary care provider.
  • Maintain patient confidentiality.
  • Follow CDC guidelines.

As we transition back to 'normal' worship gatherings, we will continue to provide online worship for those who cannot attend. If you have additional questions, please contact or call 651-633-7515.
