January 14 Update

Dear Grace Family & Friends:


Yes, we are holding our worship services via Livestream this month. We have discovered that folks were having some challenges accessing the Livestream and were sometimes being directed into the previous week’s service.

So here are some tips on how to join us LIVE at 10:30 am on Sunday morning.

To attend from the Grace website, click on the Grace United Church Barrie link in the Livestream Information box in the right column; this takes you to our YouTube channel.

On the YouTube Search line, type in the specific date of the service (e.g., January 16, 2022); press Enter.

Rev. Susan & Dr. John McLean

Drive-Through Communion This Sunday (January 16)

We know how much community and fellowship means to the Grace family. So, this Sunday we are going to provide COMMUNION in a slightly different way.

Following our Livestream worship service, which will include an online communion liturgy for those who wish to stay at home, we are taking Communion outside to the drive-through under the North door overhang.

We invite you to stay in your car and be served communion by pulling up to the drive-through! You will be served homemade bread (a little bigger than bite-size) and warm cider, and offered a takeout bag that you could deliver to someone else on the way home, if you so wish.

Since Communion is about sharing and building up God’s community, we decided that we needed to get creative about staying connected with each other during these pandemic times.

Drive-through Communion will be served from 11:30 am to 12 noon. Come join us, say hello, and share in fellowship.
