Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I arrive on Sunday?
  • Grace Fellowship services will be a touchless experience (no handshakes, no passing of the offering bucket, no paper handouts, etc).
  • Family units will be seated at least six feet apart from other family units.
  • Doors will be propped open so that guests do not need to touch door handles.
  • We are planning for one-way foot traffic where possible
  • The majority of lobby furniture and cafe tables will be removed to allow space for social distancing.
  • We will ask that you socialize with others after the service outside, enjoying our beautiful New York summer weather!
  • Our pastors will not be available in the lobby before or after the service for conversations or prayer. If you would like to meet with one of our pastors, we ask that you set-up a virtual meeting during the week with a pastor or someone from our pastoral care team.
What precautionary measures are being implemented?
  • We will be following the NYS Executive Order 202.38 that limits religious gatherings to 33% capacity. If we reach 33% sanctuary capacity for any of our services, we will ask you to sit in our overflow section or attend a later service. 
  • Staff members and volunteers will be wearing masks and will be required to answer a health questionnaire prior to serving. 
  • Our staff and volunteers won’t be offering hugs or handshakes instead they’ll be giving enormous smiles and warmhearted welcomes.
  • High-volume areas will be thoroughly sanitized between services.
  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout all of our campuses.
  • The auditorium will be sanitized and cleaned before services.
Are masks required?
  • All staff, volunteers, and congregants will be required to wear face coverings (any cloth face covering, such as a fabric mask, scarf, or bandana). 
  • You will be asked to keep your face covering on at all times. 
  • Face coverings can come off when sitting during the worship service and when singing at least twelve feet apart from another family unit.
What will Kidventure look like?

We’re excited to see you and your children again! When you return, you’ll see new traffic patterns, some one-way, in the children’s ministry areas of Grace Fellowship. You’ll see touchless interactions at check-in, social distancing in reception areas and older classrooms, and masks on teachers, helpers, and in some cases, children. We’ll have individually-wrapped snacks in classrooms that offer snack, and sanitizing between services. We’ll make sure that your children are safe by not reusing the same toys at both services. Want more information? Contact your Kidventure Director!

Will the Cafe be open at any of the campuses?

Grace Cafe’s will not be opened and no food or drink will be served at this time. 

I am 65+ years old or immune-compromised. Can I attend?

All ages are welcome. If you have any concerns regarding your health, please join us online. We will continue to have online services each week.

Will there be a Saturday In-Person Service?

Starting the weekend of our regathering on September 13, Grace Latham will no longer host 5pm services on Saturday evenings. We have been so grateful for the life change coming out of Saturday services for the past 15 years. However, we believe this is a strategic season to reevaluate our approach to weekend services. COVID-19 will require volunteers and staff, at least initially, to focus their energies on planning and execution of safety standards that will keep our congregation healthy; and technological advancements have negated the need to record a multisite sermon on a Saturday. We have concluded that weekend services will be more effective overall with Grace staff and volunteers focused on Sunday.

What happened to our Greenbush Campus?

All ministries and weekend services previously hosted at our Greenbush building will now move to our Latham building. For Greenbush small groups and ministries that have been meeting in homes, those ministries will continue to meet as they have historically.

On Monday, June 29, Grace Greenbush met over Zoom to discuss the upcoming merger and ask questions. Our staff has been overwhelmed and grateful for the people of Grace Greenbush as they have immediately taken action – checking in on small groups, connecting to Latham leaders and volunteers, offering to process through the physical move, and more. The people of Grace Greenbush are a community of spiritual leaders with a kingdom mindset, and Grace staff will do everything within our power to transition Grace Greenbush ministries once held at our Greenbush building to our Latham building.

If you are a part of Grace Greenbush and would like to talk to someone about how you and your family can get involved at Grace Latham, please contact Rachel Rice at
