Update: Tuesday, September 15, 2020
Now more than ever, we all need Jesus. That’s why the Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventists has joined with MaxLife Events in providing three different online evangelism programs under the umbrella of MaxHarvest2020. These programs promise to be innovative and to prepare individuals to spread the message of Jesus in these uncertain times. Please view the following links for more information and to register!

Grants Pass Church is now open for main church worship service each Sabbath! Please note that our church is complying with the Oregon state mandate requiring that face coverings be worn at all times while inside our church, and to maintain a 6′ physical distance from others who are not in your family unit, even when outside. According to the Oregon Health Authority document #2390E, venues should offer “a reasonable modification” for people claiming medical exemptions, but to allow anyone over 5 years of age to enter the building without a face covering (no matter if they have an exemption or not) is no longer an option. To learn about our church’s available modifications, please contact the church office at (541) 476-6313 Mon – Thurs 9 AM – 3 PM.
As much as we would love to see everyone come back to church immediately, we need to realize not everyone is comfortable in this situation. As we work on implementing the following guidelines, we thank you in advance for your continued prayers, shared compassion, and your cheerful cooperation with the following:
1) To maintain physical distancing requirements, we are utilizing an online reservation system. We ask that everyone who is planning on coming to church make a reservation ahead of time so we can arrange the seating to have the maximum number of people possible. This is especially important due to the fact that we have been limited to a maximum of 100 people.
a. Click here to reserve your seat. Please note that the reservation form is disabled at 3:00 PM Thursday afternoon, or earlier if our maximum capacity has already been reached.
b. If you know of someone who does not have email access, please have them call the church office at (541) 476-6313 Monday-Thursday 9 AM – 3 PM to make a reservation.
c. While reservations are preferred, walk-ins will be welcome, provided we have not already reached seating capacity. Once our maximum capacity of 100 people has been met, we are sorry to say we cannot admit you into the building.
2) The glass front doors will open at 10:30 Sabbath morning. Please remember to maintain the 6′ distance as marked on the pavement. We ask that you check in with a greeter, and then a deacon will usher you to your seat in the sanctuary. Church will begin at 10:50 with a music prelude, followed by the main church service beginning at 11:00 AM.
All this is new for all of us. Your patience, prayers and positive attitude towards these changes is much appreciated. We need to make the best of everything we have, because God gave us the best in His Son! Let us do all things decently and in order, giving thanks in all things, for this is the will of God for us.
