09/30/2021 COVID Update!
Grassy Valley Service and Church Functions
We are resuming ALL activites starting October 1st including Sunday School, Wednesday evening bible study and all Ministry activities.
However, we still feel the need to try and continue to minimize the spread of this virus and its variants. We ask you to read the 8/24/21 update shown below to continue helping keep us with keeping COVID to a minimum. We also want to thank everyone for helping minimize the spread of the virus this past month.
The latest CDC guidelines from February19, 2021 (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/faith-based.html) Although this article is no longer being updated and is archived, it still has pertinent information for your safety. Since this is a very long article with guidelines covering all areas, please take the time to read.
Our sincere hope is to give you an environment that you feel safe to worship in and that you can have confidence that "everyone" is doing "their part" to conduct themselves in a responsible manner in protecting everyone we come in contact with. Face masks and social distancing are still and will continue to be the standard for all social interaction. We also recommend the Covid vaccine which was just approved by the FDA. The vaccine is free and "everyone" should place confidence in this being another aide in keeping everyone safe.
Our families, first responders, health care workers desire your help by keeping the spread of this virus down. We have recently have had loved ones who have passed and members who have been out sick with COVID. Please help us maintain a safe environment by following guidlenes in the article shown above and get vaccinated. Also, for your convenience, there are mask and sanitation stations at each entrance to the church. Whether you are fully vaccinated or not, we want everyone to feel at ease that we are as a body of Christ helping each other maintain a loving and compassionate environment for everyone!
Grassy Valley Family loves you with the love of Christ and we want to see you continue to worship with us, but in the safest way possible!

Folks hearts are softening to do ministry! Praise the Lord as He is speaking to us even today! Don’t hold back, He will supply whatever you need for a ministry and will equip you for it. If you are sensing that “He” is wanting you to move forward, don’t hold back, press on. If you can only contribute financially or bathing Grassy Valley ministries with prayer, that too is also a ministry and calling!
