GBCBB SUMMER SCHEDULE:  The worship service is at 10:00 A.M. until Rally Day, September 12.  There will be pre-school childcare, Graceland for K-3rd graders, and Graceland 2.0 for 4th and 5th graders during worship.  No Sunday School classes will meet until Rally Day.

 WORSHIP IN PERSON ON SUNDAY MORNINGS.  You may also live stream the worship service via zoom from the sanctuary.  Sign up is not required to attend in-person worship.  Masks are optional for vaccinated people.  Non-vaccinated persons should continue to mask.  We still need volunteers to handle the cameras, Zoom, and sound system.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Irene Philips at or 215-692-3206.  Training will be provided.

ATTENTION PARENTS: Graceland and Graceland 2.0 are offered weekly.  When the children leave for Graceland during the service (as noted in the order of worship), the 4th and 5th graders will go into Classroom A instead of going to Graceland.   If your 4th-12th graders are interested in helping with the powerpoint during the worship service, please contact the church office so they can be added to the rotation.  4th and 5th graders will be able to leave in time for Graceland 2.0. 

A RED CROSS BLOODMOBILE will be held at Grace Baptist this coming Tuesday, July 20, 8am-6pm.  Appointments are required.  Go to or call 1-800-733-2767.

NOW THAT MANY MEMBERS ARE WORSHIPING AGAIN IN PERSON, we will resume putting church mail in the church mailboxes.  Check there for birthday cards, announcements, and correspondence between members.
