To Our Members and Friends of Grace Community CRC:
From the outset of our suspending meetings and in-person worship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our aim as a church has been to ensure the safety of our congregation and to abide by local, state, and federal guidelines. In the interest of these, Grace Community CRC will continue to suspend in-person worship and meetings until such time as we are assured by all three levels of governance that it is safe for us to resume in-person worship. We pray that day will come soon, and rest assured we are taking every precaution and preventative measure in preparation for that day, but for now we will remain physically apart.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support in these difficult times.
--The Executive Team of Grace Community Church

Click on this link: Self Guided Meditations and a file will open that includes a self-guided meditation from Pastor Michael. Additional meditations will be posted as they become available. Please feel free to share these links/pages with others. You may also request an audio CD of the service that can be mailed to you. To get an audio CD contact the Grace Church office by calling 708-636-2848 and leave a voicemail message.
Even though we aren’t meeting for activities and worship services, church expenses continue, so we ask you to prayerfully consider giving as best you can for our shared ministries, either through online giving on this website or by mailing your gifts to the church.
These are unprecedented times. We trust that God is with us and that, by his Spirit, Jesus never leaves us nor forsakes us. But our normal life has been deeply disrupted and we are taking unprecedented precautions. If you have a need at this time, feel free to contact your District Elder or Deacon, or the Church Office. It may be difficult for you to go to the store or you might want someone to check in on you over the phone; as a church we want to lean on each other to help.
God's peace to you in our victorious Lord Jesus.
