In Person FAQs
At Grace Gospel Tabernacle we are following the NY state and NYC guidelines for re-opening safely and we look forward to seeing anyone who can make it to services in person and everyone else online! Please see the Frequently Asked Questions below. If you have any other questions, please email: [email protected]
Q: What are the guidelines I should follow while attending services?
Please wear a face covering or mask while in the church building (masks are not required for children under 2). Maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others. If you develop any symptoms related to COVID-19 or have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, we request that you stay at home and watch online.
Q: What time should I arrive?
We ask that you arrive by 11:30am so we may seat you; service starts at 12pm. We will have very limited seating capacity per NY state and city guidelines.
Q: Where will I sit?
You will be directed by an usher to sit only in designated seats that are distanced at least 6 feet apart.
Q: How do you serve communion?
We will have pre-packaged communion elements available.
Q: Will there be congregational singing?
Yes. Attendees may sing while wearing masks or may choose to just participate silently.
Q: Will there be bulletins?
No, at this time there will not be printed bulletins. We recommend you visit the Events page online.
Q: Will there be Coffee Hour?
No, we will not have any food or drink in the building at this time. Although it is tempting to stay and chat, we ask that you do not linger in the sanctuary or hallway after the service.
Q: Will there be Children's Church?
Sorry, but there will not be Children's Church at this time. The service will be family friendly and we encourage you to have your children sit with you. The service will be about 90 minutes. We hope to offer Children's Church in the fall.
Q: How can I give my offering during service?
At this time, we ask that you give online or leave your offering in the baskets by the Information Area.
Q: I’m unable to attend the service. Where can I watch the service online?
We will continue to livestream the service at gracegospeltabernacle.org/church-online at 12pm & 8pm. Please subscribe on YouTube and follow us on Facebook to stay engaged with us as we continue to worship together.
Q: Who can I contact for help?
