Local Church Grand Rapids MI
August 18, 2021 With the most recent rise in COVID Delta Variant numbers in Kent County and across the country, the East Church Council has decided we will require masks to be worn when we are gathering in the building. This measure is an expression of love and care for one another, especially our children and at risk members of the community. East Church will continue to meet in person on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and offer live streaming of worship services via YouTube. We encourage everyone to heed the CDC recommended precautions to keep others and yourself safe from this disease. If you have been recently exposed to COVID or are experiencing symptoms please remain home and seek medical care if needed. This mask requirement will stay in place until the area numbers return to lower levels, in accordance with CDC and Kent County Health Department recommendations. Thank you for your understanding, Rev. Laurie Crelly and the East Church Council
In light of the recent COVID-19 events, we have created a YouTube channel for our church services. Click the link below to check it out.
We seek to find shared beliefs that unite us in covenant and celebrate a wide variety of faith traditions.
