Our Grace UMC Church Council and Trustees have approved a reopening plan beginning the month of October as follows:

  • Starting Monday, October 5th, Grace UMC will be opened to GUMC internal groups. These gatherings will meet social-distanced in either the Fellowship Hall and Parlor with masks and other guidelines, upon the request of Amber, our administrative assistant, or Pastor Maddie. 
  • Starting Sunday, October 11th, we will be reopening for worship. We will worship with many guidelines and the requirement of masks and social distancing. We will continue live-streaming for those who feel more comfortable at home.
  • For the month of October, the building will remain closed for office hours. Amber will be available remotely during office hours in this time and can be contacted at 620-221-0618 or at gumc@gracewinfield.com. If you have any questions, or would like a pastoral call or prayer, please phone Pastor Maddie at 913-832-5488 or email her at maddie@gracewinfield.com. She is also available to meet social-distanced outside or inside the church by appointment.

Our Church Council and Trustees will continue to monitor the state and local policies regarding COVID-19, gathering again in mid-October to see how the reopening has gone. Pastor Maddie will be providing a virtual update when she returns from vacation, and you will be receiving a letter from her over the next week.
