Indoor Worship

In response to the CDC’s recent guidance on May 13 our NC governor largely eliminated state mandates regarding mass gathering limits, social distancing and indoor mask wearing, Grace Mills River will resume our regular 9am worship services beginning May 23, 2021. We invite you worship with us as you feel most comfortable.

Here are some things to expect:

  • No limitations on capacity – registration is not required.

  • Wearing face masks is optional.
  • Some areas will be closed or designated for authorized personnel only. Please respect these boundaries.
  • Building will be sanitized prior to service, and hand sanitizer provided.
