Welcome to Our Website!

Happy New Year!

 

What a year 2020 was1 We welcome 2021, and although we’ve already experienced some challenging moments, we look forward to better things. Sunday, January 10 will mark 42 weeks on Zoom for Sunday services.  It’s been almost ten months since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. We’ve continued meeting on Zoom in order to protect our members and our community and to comply with public health guidelines. We’re grateful for this platform, which has provided us a vital connection to remain in fellowship. If you would like to participate in our online community, please email us at gracechapelsocal@gmail.com for instructions as to how to join us. 

 
We continue to actively and prayerfully monitor the situation and will resume meeting in person when it becomes clear that doing so will not endanger our congregation and community. LA County is currently undergoing a severe surge in cases, so we must remain vigilant.
 
It’s important that we maintain social distance, wear a mask in public, and continue to wash our hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. Faith in God and our concern for own personal freedom don’t minimize the role of science and common sense in dealing with this horrible pandemic. This is a time to be, in the words of scripture, “not weary in well doing.”
 
As we enter 2021, let’s continue to remain faithful in prayer and continue to stand on the Word of God, as we express our gratitude to the Lord for his having sustained us through this past challenging year. We will continue to trust him to not only bring us through this difficult season, but to beat back this virus and to bring healing to the nations. In the meantime, we will continue to stand on these words from Jude 24-25:
 
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. 
                                                                                        
May God bless you, strengthen you and encourage you.
