Join Children's Minister Ashley Purcell as she reads The Easter Story to preschoolers. For those in K-5th grade, Ms. Ashley shares that Easter isn't about the Easter Eggs . . . but they sure do help tell a beautiful story! Join Ms. Ashley as she walks through Holy Week using a carton of eggs.  Visit the GHC Kids Facebook page or the GHC Kids page for these videos and more!  

 

On WEDNESDAY, grab some chalk or paint and some tape and go outside for an activity that will be fun for the whole family. Make a design on your sidewalk, window, or glass door that looks like a stained glass window.  Don't forget to have a cross in it! Then, paint the shapes with different colors. We've included some pictures to help. Be sure to post your pictures on our GHC Kids Facebook page.

Grace Heartland Family

 

As of yesterday morning it was our plan to proceed with Sunday AM worship...however we were clear that we were listening to the Government officials and the Health professionals as we prayed to hear God’s voice and wisdom. As a result of the Governors statement last evening expanded call for all large assemblies to cease followed by a press release from our local Health

Dept asking for all Faith Based to cancel services in order to flatten the curve of possible spread (note, there are NO confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Hardin or surrounding counties) we have revisited our plans.


We have prayed, conferred together and decided to cancel our gatherings tomorrow, Sunday March 15. We will however post the sermon only (as we do every Sunday) through our website and GHC App. It will also be available at 10:15 AM tomorrow on other social media platforms as well. We will send out other alerts today to let you know the details. Beginning NEXT Sunday, March 22nd we will have an entire worship service available online for you to experience and

participate! This may also be the perfect time for you to become part of the online giving on our APP and Website so that your worship of giving is not interrupted during this time. We appreciate your attention to that because the financial needs of the church do not stop during this crisis time...and it’s our desire to continue reaching out to those in need during this time.


We will send out notices regarding alternatives for all other cancelled events as well. Please pray for wisdom as we navigate these uncharted waters and remember that we serve a God who loves and guides in the midst of storms. He is faithful and we can find joy in the midst of trials!


Please alert anyone you know who may not see this update and continue to reach out to those in need...this is the perfect time to DO what we PREACH and believe, let’s be good neighbors!


Thank you for your understanding and support of the leadership as we make this decision and let’s turn this into an opportunity for growth and ministry instead of defeat! We love you all and look forward to the other side of this storm!!



With deep love,


Jeff Noel, Pastors, Staff and Leadership of Grace Heartland Church
