Though we have returned to normal operations, we are monitoring things closely as the COVID-19 numbers are quickly on the rise again  in our general area. The session has not made the decision to return to our more stringent protocols yet, but we do ask that everyone continue the CDC's recommended safe hygiene practices. We encourage you to wear a mask if you think that is appropriate for you, and we continue to encourage everyone to respect one another's' consciences.

Our Leadership

At Grace Covenant Church, the Lord has provided leadership through officers. The officers of the Church, by whom all its powers are administered, are, according to the Scriptures, teaching and ruling elders and deacons.

The Elders (The Session)

Though there is one office of Elder, within this office elders are of two sorts: Teaching Elders (or pastors) and Ruling Elders.
