Nyob zoo, Grace Hmong Alliance Church Family! We have more good news to report. As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic begin to subside, the GHAC Governance Authority has approved further reopening measures. Please read the entirety of this announcement to know the latest.
Effective Sunday, May 23rd, 2021, registration and check-in for Sunday Service attendance will no longer be required. Both online and in-person registration is now closed—just come to church like normal. The Sunday bulletin with the day’s schedule and announcements will be generated digitally and posted on the GHAC Facebook page and in the GHAC Congregation WhatsApp Messaging group. Only a limited number of printed copies will be made available at church on Sunday mornings—find one in the front lobby, if needed. Sunday announcements for the bulletin should be communicated or e-mailed to Fong Yang at email@example.com by Friday at 12PM or else it will not be included on that Sunday.
Effective Sunday, June 6th, 2021, all ministries, including Sunday School for the Disciplemaking Ministry, Alliance Men, Alliance Women, Seniors and the Youth will resume. The Cross Connection Café will reopen, as well. All of these ministries will need to follow their respective rooms’ capacity limits (see below) to allow for proper social distancing. Overflow rooms for Sunday Service will be made available.
Although Sunday Collections has resume with the advent of church re-opening, we continue to encourage you to tithe and donate using the “Tithe/Give Online” button on our website. If you need assistance doing this, please ask your fellow church members or contact our bookkeeper, Fong Yang.
Mask-wearing is still mandatory inside GHAC through June 16th. However, in alignment with the expiration of the City of Wauwatosa’s mask mandate, masks or facial coverings will no longer be required effective Thursday, June 17th, 2021, but you’re welcome to continue wearing one. As the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends, continue wearing a mask if you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. If you’re feeling sick, stay home.
LiveStream: While in-person service has been going well since March with an average of 150 attendees each Sunday, we will continue to have the GHAC Livestream available on our YouTube Channel. Get GHAC text alerts by texting “GHAC” to short code 55469. Also, we recommend joining the GHAC WhatsApp group.
In other news, our sister church, New Life Hmong Alliance Church, has sold their church building. Upon New Life’s request, the GHAC Governance Authority has voted to allow their congregation to use the Alliance Men room for their Sunday Service from 2PM-5PM each Sunday until they find a new building. We ask that ministry leaders do their best to accommodate New Life each Sunday afternoon.
We look forward to seeing everyone back at church in God’s timing. May He continue to keep us safe!
