Onsite Service: Outdoors at Olmsted Falls
August 30 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until September 20, 2020
The outdoor service at our Olmsted Falls campus happens on Sunday evenings at 6pm, and we’d love to have you join us! We are able to accommodate 350 cars at each service; you can register your car (just one registration is necessary per vehicle, no matter how many are with you) with the link at the right so we can make sure there are adequate spaces for those attending.
You’ll have the option to remain in your car and listen to the “live” service via an FM channel on your car radio, or sit next to your vehicle in lawn chairs you bring, or sit on a blanket or lawn chairs in one of the many grassy areas. For those who need to stay in their car due to health issues, please come early to assure good sight lines.
You do not need to wear a mask while worshipping outdoors with us, but just a reminder to be cognizant of the fact that different ones of us have varying needs. Let’s be aware of maintaining 6′ social distancing, and be sensitive to our brothers and sisters around us. If you need to visit a restroom, you can find one through either side of the building. Please do slip on your mask when you are in the building. Other areas of the building will be roped off to maintain cleanliness.
We’ll have “live” worship at our outdoor services, and the message will be the same message given in our other weekend services. If you prefer air-conditioning and an indoor service, we encourage you to register for our indoor service at Middleburg Heights. (see the other registration link on this web page).
Weather issues: an announcement will be made 3 hours in advance if it appears that rain will require the outdoor service to be cancelled (we’ll send an email to all those who have registered, plus post the news on our website). You’ll be able to engage with one of our 5 livestream services that will be available every weekend.
Children are welcome to attend the service! At this time, we will not have GraceKids classes. Our GraceKids staff team will continue to provide activity packets for kids each week.
We’ll greet each other verbally :), but won’t be shaking hands, hugging, etc. To avoid unnecessary touching, our bulletin and message notes will continue to be online. In addition, you are welcome to give financially either online. Thanks for honoring the Lord with your giving, making an impact locally and globally!
Whether you engage onsite or online, we’re grateful to have you joining with us! Even in these challenging times, Jesus wants to be at work in us and through us, showing us his love and empowering us to show his love everywhere we go. Thanks for being part of that journey with the Grace family!
Some advantages of this outdoor option: it allows you to worship without wearing a mask; it helps parents who have young children (preferable to being in a worship center seat!); it gives those with health vulnerabilities the option to remain in their cars and still be part of a service with others; finally, you’ll love the beauty of the Olmsted Falls campus!
