SERVICE TIMES UPDATE: 8:30 and 10:30am

 
After reviewing the reminders below, please register for one of our services.
 
 
 
 
 
Let’s be SMART as we prepare to reopen.  Here are some important reminders:
 

Social Distancing

  • We will be following the guidelines for reopening given by the Governor’s office. You can read those guidelines HERE
  • Our Worship Center will be marked for social distancing by sitting family units 6 feet apart. Please DO NOT change the set up or remove any materials used to mark these areas.
  • Our Welcome Team will guide you through a contactless experience from the door directly to your worship center seat. At all times we will assist you in maintaining a 6ft. safe distance as you move through the facility.
  • During this time please refrain from shaking hands, hugging or high fives. We recommend using “smiling eyes” to greet each other. 
  • Please only park in parking lot A (front lot at main entrance).
  • Enter only through our main entrance. All other entrances will be closed. 
  • Grace Groups will NOT meet on campus.
  • Children and Students will not meet for their regular programming. We believe that this is a great opportunity for your family to worship together in one service. Children of all ages are welcome. 
  • Children will be given fidget packets filled with puzzles, coloring sheets and other age-appropriate materials so they can learn during the service. Please bring your digital devices (iPads, tablets, phones, etc.) and a set of headphones for each child.  They can access their GraceKids services on their devices to watch a Bible Story and lesson.  Prepare now by downloading our free Grace app.  You can find it by searching Grace Baptist Knoxville in your app store. 
  • Printed materials will not be available during this time. Please access Pastor Bobby’s sermon notes through our Grace app or YouVersion. 
  • You may continue to utilize our giving boxes for on-campus giving and to submit prayer requests/connect cards.

 

Masks

  • Bring your own mask for all family members if at all possible (cloth, bandanas, scarves, etc.) If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. 

 

All Precautions 

  • Do not attend if you are sick or running a fever. Please check the temperature of each family member before arriving. 
  • Practice regular hand washing and the use of our sanitation stations.
  • High-risk populations should continue to utilize our online services. Remember, there is NO PRESSURE to attend, no one is more or less spiritual.  There is no judgment. 
  • Before and after each service, our facilities team will sanitize our worship center, lobbies, restrooms, doors and all common areas. They will be utilizing completely safe, non-toxic fumigating machines and other products recommended by the CDC. 
 

Register

  • Currently we are offering two services at 8:30 and 10:30am. We are prepared to open more services as needed. The services times are spaced apart to provide adequate time for our facilities team to sanitize our worship center, lobbies, restrooms, doors and all common areas.
  • Registration is required to ensure that we do not exceed the maximum capacity as outlined in the Governor’s recommendations.
  • Registration is open on a first come, first served basis. Registration for each service will close when capacities are reached. 
  • Online registration is preferred.  If you are unable to register online please call 865-691-8886. (phone registrations are not guaranteed, and will be confirmed with a call back)
  • Registration will close when capacity is reached.
  • Everyone is welcome to register and attend. You do not have to be a member to join us. 
  • If are unable to attend, please deregister as soon as possible so we can make that space available for others. You can deregister by contacting programming@gracebc.org
 

Tell Others

  • Invite others to join you. Text, email or call to let others know that they are welcome.  Share posts through your social media accounts. 
  • Share with other families the info about our Family Worship Service. Let them know that children of all ages are welcome to attend.
